 1  Spinal stenosis herniated disks My legs and feet became very swollen to the point that I could not wear a pair of shoes. My knees and ankles were painful to move. I had been taking Vicodin for back problems without any reactions. The doctor changed my meds to lortab and the trouble began. I was taken off Lortab and told they don't make Vicodin any more. F 61 3 weeks
1X D
 4  Tonsillectomy Nausea (got better once laying down) and extreme drowsiness. It has alcohol in it so it BURNED when it hit the raw tissue at the back if my throat but I decided to dilute it with water and it helped. F 18 2 weeks
 4  Wisdom tooth removal Extreme drowsiness, mild nausea Took care of the pain like it was supposed to, but also knocked me out. That was fine for me since I needed to rest anyway, but if I had needed to resume daily activities it would not have been okay. F 19 5 days
2X D
 3  Fractured humerus (arm) Muscle contractions when falling asleep (myoclonus), constipation, nighttime anxiety / fear. I was surprised at how little this medication reduces pain. I was expecting much more. OTC Ibuprofen was more effective. The sudden nighttime muscle contractions were a problem - they woke me up and weren't good for a healing broken bone that needed to be immobile. Ouch. F 44 14 days
7.5 1X D
 3  Lower back muscle tear Dry mouth, loopy disconnected feeling. Constipation and difficulty urinating. This med has worked for me with past injuries i.e. wisdom teeth and sprained shoulder. But this strained lower back muscle affliction seems to not be as treatable with this Lortab 10 mg. If pain level is normally 10, this makes it a 7. Better then nothing I suppose..... M 32 3 days
10 3X D
 5  Chronic foot pain I have a high tolerance to narcotics so I don't get many side effects mentioned. Occasionally my nose will itch terribly. I was on Vicodin for 7mos for the same issue and it did start to bother my stomach. The pain I have will never go away so being on pain meds is just something I have to live with to be able to continue working. It's as good as any of this class of narcotics I believe. F 44 3 weeks
 4  sciatica, chronic disk degeneration Would be sick to my stomach if I didn't take a Benedryl with each dose. Occasional vivid dreams about mutated or injured animals. Dreams were upsetting, horrific nightmares on same subject when I was also on hormone meds. I take Lortab twice daily. The result is a decrease in pain for 2-3 hours so I can get up, take a walk, and do some physical therapy. Works better with the addition of Xanax 1mg. F 56 2 years
 5  Broken back, shrapnel wounds Itching, sweating, nausea, lethargy, withdrawal symptoms. M 38 5 days
 1  Oral surgery (wisdom teeth Random crying spells, deep depression , hopelessness and no sense of self before the drug.still feeling side effects even after I stopped taking them two days ago. F 18 8 days
Not sure
 5  endometriosis,kidney stones,teeth Itching. But it helps alot with pain an I'm fixing to have 4 wisdom teeth cut out. When I was diagnosed with endometriosis at 18 I would end up in the hospital with unbearable pain an had bad kidney stone attacks during an after pregnancy had to have surgeries during my pregnancy because stones were stuck an had to put agents in lortabs helped the pain alot. Only bad thing is extremely addictive F 22 3 years
 4  Pain from MS and Ovarian Cancer No side effects at all. Works great when I use it. I only use this as needed but it won't allow me to write that in the usage section. I do not use this everyday. Only as needed I have this medication on hand in the elixir form. If I need it, I take 15 Mls every 6 hours as needed but I rarely take a full dose. I take 5 mls or 10 mls max. It helps my pain alot and allows me to sleep but I only use this when I have a spell of pain. I will never understand how someone becomes addicted to this medication. A 10 day supply of this form of Lortab lasts me a month, sometimes two months. I use non narcotic pain meds in between with decent results. I can't imagine being addicted to this. I'd be sick of I took the whole dose let alone this medication daily. The day may come when I will need more of this medication but till then I'm very careful about using it. I'm thankful for this medication however because when I need it, it really truly helps me. F 38

 3  arthritis Same thing happens to me so I know exactly what you mean. Its like you can breathe in so deep and clear that it burns your nostril. F 32 1 years
 4  Surgery on finger It helped out a lot with pain however, I don't know if it was me but, I hallucinated quite a few times and it made me a little drowsy. I still found it a very good medicine! M 14 2 weeks
2 500 MG
 3  Tonsillectomy Dependency I was prescribed the liquid form of Lortab to treat pain after my tonsils were removed. It helped greatly with pain relief. However, I was not aware of potential dependency, and when I stopped taking it after two weeks I went through rather unpleasant withdrawal symptoms that included severe drug cravings. I would come home, run to the bathroom and take a swig from the bottle. I never experienced anything like it in my entire life... It took another 2 weeks of slowly tapering down. Not a bad drug per se, just be aware of the fact that you might develop dependency. F 42 2 weeks
 5  4 wisdom teeth extracted Itching, drowsiness, hot and cold sweats. F 21 3 days
 2  back injury I hate this drug, it puts a dent in my pain, but only if i dont eat. if i eat i feel no relief. i get extreme headaches at night, the past 2-3 weeks i am having a hard time reading my computer or phone or books, it makes my eyes and head ache to focus on text to the point where i am thinking of getting eyes check for glasses, though i have never had issues with vision in my life, was 20/20 even few years ago when i renewed dl. i am alsi having increased spasms everywhere..chest, stomach, back, down both legs, and both arms, upper, and sometimes in neck. unsure if friom progressing back problems or from long term medication..been on it for roughly 2 months straight this time, before was as needed. i hate taking pills anyway, but these symptoms are killing me. if anyone has info or similar complaints would love to know.

LORTAB  (ACETAMINOPHEN; HYDROCODONE BITARTRATE):  This combination medication is used to relieve moderate to severe pain. It contains an opioid (narcotic) pain reliever (hydrocodone) and a non-opioid pain reliever (acetaminophen). Hydrocodone works in the brain to change how your body feels and responds to pain. Acetaminophen can also reduce a fever. This product is not recommended for use in children younger than 6 years due to an increased risk of serious side effects (such as slow/shallow breathing).   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
