Lortab is another brand name for a combination of acetaminophen and the opioid hydrocodone. Used for pain management, Lortab is a prescription medication that’s safe to use, as long as the physician’s instructions are followed.
Lortab abuse, on the other hand, carries many risks. Hydrocodone is habit-forming and building up a tolerance to its effects can happen quickly.
Lortab overdose is another risk of Lortab abuse; the drug can be toxic if too much is taken, or if it’s taken along with other drugs like alcohol.
Recovery from opioid abuse is possible, but difficult. A professional detox center can help make the process easier and more successful.
