i took only one 7.5 loratab and was drug tested will it show up in my urine for how long
I have been prescribed hydrocodone for years legally. But because of people who are worried about drug screens and are using them illegally, I am treated like a criminal when I go to my pharmacy with a LEGAL prescription. They look at me sideways through their eyes (like I know how to manipulate my doctor to give me the prescription) they check and recheck the prescription, they highly regulate what DAY I can get them on. Not a day early even if I am leaving town! I don't use it for "FUN" I can not function normally without this medicine. So people who are taking this just because it's TUESDAY and there is no distractions, I am really angry! You are making it extremely difficult for those of us who REALLY NEED it.
Good heavens people.... Lortab and Vicodin both contain the same ingredients!!!!! Hydrocodone and Acetaminophen!

I feel your pain I had endometriosis fibroid tumors cysts on my ovaries and blood supply to all that ,that the doctor said looked like a Detroit city road map.I was in so much pain for the last 20 years that I thought if I could just get to a gun I'd blow a hole through my head or gut and end it .I could not escape the pain that followed like my shadow ever present day and night please tell your doctor about all the things that you're experiencing write these things down how long it lasted etc so he can adjust the meds accordingly I'm sure if u have a careing Dr.he or she will not cut you off a person will have good days and bad days they understand that .I went to a Dr that I had traveled over 1000 miles round trip to see who ultimately said you've lived with it for 20 yes ,live with it another 20 yes and when I began to cry he made me an appt.with a shrink so I gave up and several years later I found a wonderful carrying Dr who gave me a hysterectomy he took it all out and I've been virtually pain free since .good luck dear,I hope u get some relief and some help I'll keep you in my prayers.

First, your dr CAN NOT have you aressted for taking your pills that they prescribed you. 2nd, even if they wanted to check, it would be difficult for them to tell "how" you took them. 3rd, the only thing they could do at WORST is dismiss you. ..DR/PATIENT privileged. ..even if you took someone else's meds, they can't call the police.
185Candy In Pain Says:
How can I find a pain management clinic that will actually listen and care about the amount of pain I'm in? I have a rare disease that's making my bones break from the inside out in both legs with no cure. I've been on the same meds for four years and as we all know, our body becomes use to the same meds after time and my Dr will do nothing to help me and I stay in excruciatingly pain 24/7 and can hardly walk and on top of that, I still have a child I'm trying to raise. Please help, any idea at all.
Good job on passing. That sounds about right
Dont listen to David! Hes giving you mathematical time frames, when it really just depends on your body. Lortab is an opiate. The standard time for opiates is 48-72 hours. If you only took one, it was probably out of your system before the day was out. It also depends on if you take them regularly or if this was a one-time thing. Long story short: Your cool,dude.
I would like to share my story so that maybe just maybe it might help anyone that may be in a simlar situation. I have a herniated disk in my neck that causes me to have very intense pain. I go to the spine center for pain managment and I am prescribed oxycodone. I try my best to only take the dose that is prescribed but sometimes the pain gets the best of me and I take more than I should. So here goes with my long story. Last month I ran out of my medicine like 10 days early. I saved one 30 mg oxycotin because I knew it was time for me to have a drug screen. Well I was in a lot of pain and a friend gave me 24 7.5 hydrocodone on a Tuesday and I took 6 on Tuesday 8 on wed. 8 on Thursday and 2 on Friday morning. Then I had nothing on sat. Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. Then on wed. at noon I took the 30 mg. that I saved. The very next morning on Thursday at 9:45 they gave me a urine test. I worried myself sick for a month. I worried that 6 days wasn't enough time to get so many pills out of my urine and also I worried that maybe the 30mg I took 22 hour before my test maybe wouldn't show up. It was an awful worry. But thankfully I passed my test. And the test they give is a very expensive test. So I can say to anyone worried that 6 days is enough time to clear the urine if opiates and that in 24 hours opiates will still show up. I hope my story will help anyone in a similar situation.
Yes just tell your dr that you took an extra dose because of your pain level and you shouldn't get in trouble. Most of the time drs are pretty lenient with you. Mine is anyway. I would tell the dr how much pain your in and ask him to up your dosage!
Be honest tell why this will help him manage your pain and no he can't have you arrested unless your selling your script .but he has to prove that
I recently went to my pain management dr..they do urine tests..they cud tell I was taking Lortab along with my percocets...i have 2 herniated discs in my neck..3 in my lowet back..im 37..i have shrunk 2inches in 9 yrz...my pain is constant chores around the house just make it excruciating...:-(
Hey stressedthehellout...did u pass??
Some people are really in pain like YOU and get meds for pain like YOU and can very easily get addicted. So before you throw your opinion out there think about it. No one is perfect especially an addict!!!
Its the same thing...
Excedrin Migraine is the best for migraines or Fiorcet but yeah not hydrocodone. That will give you a headache.
some people have serious opium addition problems which is an illness. This usually happens to people who have real pain so they get prescribed pain meds and then they can't stop taking it because they're addicted so they buy it off the street. So don't b**** at people who have inadvertently caused you inconvenience. They have their own problems.
U been fine for sure
