wisdom tooth pain
I took one loratab 7.05-45004 @ 7:15 pm, it is now 9:47 pm and I am still in tears because the pain is still so strong. Can I take another loratab now to hopefully ease the pain or should I wait until the next scheduled dose? ## What is the dose of the Lortab? The numbers you've provided don't make any sense. How often have you been directed to take them? Has your dentist checked out this issue? This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Watson Lortab Formula Change
Does anyone know what Watson did or why they changed their formula for Lortab 10/500? It used to be blue and when I picked up my refill today they are now white. I still have a few days of my blue left but I swapped a few so I can try the white. I'm waiting for it to start working and I took it over 2 hours ago. My rx is 1-2 every 3 hours not to exceed 7 in a day. (my pm dr wants me on a stronger med but anything above hydrocodone makes me euphoric and I can't function) The blue color lortab starts to work within 15 mins. I took my first white color lortab 2 hours ago, waited an hour and took the 2nd and nothing. I will wait 30 mins longer and switch back to the blue until I run out. This sucks. I'm a full time law student, disabled, single mom and can't use my dominate ...

White No Markings
White oblong pill no markings looks like could be generic lortab 10 can u help ## I don't care what shape or color they are, any controlled substance "will" !! have a code number always... Also will be scored for breaking in half. You can take this to the bank.. ## Keith is correct about the marking, however, that is only true if they are manufactured and/or approved in the U.S. If they have no imprint, they can be ruled out as being a legal U.S. prescription medication. However, the score mark is not actually required on them, or on any other tablets. Where were they found? ## I purchased Tylenol with Codeine in Canada that are white and have no markings on them whatsoever.

Lortab 7 5
What is the difference between Lortab 7.5 and Tramadol 50mg? I have severe pain from severe enamel loss on my teeth due to Gastroesophigal Reflux Disease and have been prescribed pain meds until i can have my teeth extracted. I have been prescribed both of these (not at the same time) and found the Lortab 7.5 to work better to control the pain. I also feel very dizzy while taking the Tramadol and doesn't seem to relieve the pain as much. Any thoughts, suggestions or info? ## The Tramadol is derived from an opiate, but doesn't have the same pain relieving effects, so the Lortab is stronger, because it actually has the narcotic Hydrocodone in it. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsin...

White Oblong Pill With Ex Imprint Found In My Lortab Bottle
I found a white oblong pill with Ex on it in my lortab bottle could it be a new kind of lortab, or what is it ## Hi Coty, Based on the description provided, your pill has been identified as Excedrin migraine (Acetaminophen 250 mg / Aspirin 250 mg / Caffeine 65 mg). Excedrin Migraine is used in the treatment of pain/fever and migraines. It belongs to the drug class: analgesic combinations. Learn More: Acetaminophen + ASA + Caffeine Details I hope this helps! ## Not Exedrin Migraine, they have just an E on those. It's a foreign hydrocodone pill but not as good. ## I've found that pill you're describing: white, caplet with Ex on one side, no number. Based on internet search, I also thought it was a Migraine Excedrin pill but they only have the E marking. Can you tell me where ...

Lortab Watson Blue vs Lortab M363
My friend and I are both prescribed Lortab APAP10/500's. I get the Watson 540 blue pills and he gets the M363 white pills. I have taken the white ones before, but for some reason, it did not help me as much as the Watsons. I don't understand this. Besides the manufacturer, is there any real difference between the two different kinds of pills? ## Besides the difference in manufacturers, there may be a significant difference in the inactive ingredients in each pill. Inactive ingredients found in M363 are: crospovidone magnesium stearate microcrystalline cellulose povidone corn starch silicon dioxide stearic acid Each Watson 540 tablet contains the following inactive ingredients: croscarmellose sodium crospovidone magnesium stearate microcrystalline cellulose povidone starch steari...

lortab 7.5 availability
I have been taking pain meds for yrs. and when the lortab 7.5 was changed to norco, I do not get full benefit. My question is where can I get the old lortab 7.5 pill w/the blue specks in it? I don't know what the specks are but they make a difference in my body make-up and I would like to order or fill my scripts wherever I can get them again. If they are no longer available in the states then do you know where I can order them online from Canada or another country? ## They no longer make them.

Is it safe to take a lortab an hour after taking vicodin that didn work
I have serious back pain from a spinal fusion. I took a vicodin about an hour ago that expired July of last year. It isn't working. Is it okay for me to take a Lortab? ## Hello, Toya! How are you? I'm sorry that you're in pain. They are both the same medication, Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. What are the dosages?

pain help
need a skifull dr. who does back ablations and prescribe lortabs for extrarelief. car accident crushed pelvis 30 years ago then rear ended 3 years ago. my pelvis mobes no surgery noted to work ## Hello, Lisalynn! How are you? I am very sorry that you're in pain. Unfortunately, there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. Do you currently have a PCP? If so, then having them refer you to someone would likely be the easiest way of finding the help you need. And what is your general location? That may make it easier for individuals to make recommendations.
