Need to how long it takes for lortab and klonopin? ## Hello, Tracey! How are you? How long does what take? Are you asking how long it takes them to start working? Generally, within about 15 to 20 minutes of taking them, since they are regular release medications. The FDA classifies Lortab as being 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. And Klonopin is a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. It also carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability.

I was diagnosed heavy inflammation by my pcp latter cidp by a neurologist. The pcp put me first on lortab took me off and put me on Norco right before I went to the neurologist for a second opinion. The neurologist left me on the Norco. Any advice on which brand or type of 10/325. Norco works best? ## Hello, Pat! How are you? It really depends on you and which one works best for you. Norco and Lortab are the same, they both contain Hydrocodone and Acetaminophen. This is listed by the FDA as being 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. Has the one you've been receiving from your pharmacy worked well for you? ## I would get constipated at first on any of the drugs ...

Watson Lortab Formula Change
185 Replies RSS
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 ...

lortab after tramadol
1 Reply RSS
i have been taking tramadol for about a week, the last time was about 24 hrs before i took lortab, three 10/325 and it seems like the lortab did not work at all?? how long till the lortab will work again? ## I don't think it ever will work the same if you have been on tramadol for a long period of time. But a week shouldn't have any affect on the lortab not working . I used lortab before switching to tramadol and now when I get severe spine pain that lortab does Nothing . So I think ur body has to re adjust to it. This is my personal opinion . I am no Dr though :)

86 Replies RSS
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...

Hi! Quick run down. I have been an addict for 15yrs. I was taking 25/10mg lortabs. I know that's not the worst there is at all but an addicts an addict, unfortunately. Now for the past 3yrs I have been on Suboxone and. during that time my original fybromialgia diagnoses turned to be actually lupus I also have many problems w my back, siatic included. All this pain was breaking through the suboxone, I know sounds impossible to some but it was. And to top off, my Sub Dr left his practice. So i figured subs weren't helping my pain and I felt strong enough and my life is great so I got off subs, opposed to a very expensive I am now being seen at PM. Dr prescribed me 10mg oxycodone.. it's a joke, because subs are extremely potent. I tried to get onto PM again (early) and if cours...

has tylenol been taken out of lortab 10/500 ## It hasn't been taken out, but reduced because of the effects on the liver. ## FDA now requires all prescription meds to have no more than 325 mg of tylenol in each dose. There is a form of Hydrocodone that does not contain tylenol. It is an Extended Release, it is Zohydro.
