Substitute for Lortab 5
Hydrocodone/bit/acet ## I have a strange reaction to Lortab. It will keep me up. I have a very hard time falling asleep when I have taken this drug. One doctor suggested to me it was because of my ADD. Is there another drug that I can ask for would work like Lortab that hopefully wouldn't keep me awake. This is a very frustrating problem for me. ## Yes, narcotics do sometimes cause that in some people and it can even be severe enough that it causes some people to abuse them, because they like that effect. By now, I hope you've already found another medication to use, Angela. If anyone else is seeking similar information, you really should just talk to your doctor about the problem. There are other medications you can try, but you may go through several, before finding one that w... ...

what is the best substitute for lortab 10 500 mg
What is the best replacement drug for Lortab 10/500 mg? 20 year user through a pain management clinic ## Hello, John! How are you? Did you doctor offer you any alternative, now that these are no longer available? You can still get pills with Hydrocodone in them, but the Acetaminophen is only 325mgs. 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. There's really no way to know what other medication may work well for you. What others have you tried? ...

loritab substitute
I can't find my prescription anywhere due to the new law , I was sounder ehat I could take instead of my hydrocodone/acetaminophen.. ## Hi Anthony, Sorry to hear about your situation. However, there are a number of different options on the market if you were to look for an alternative pain medication to Lortab (hydrocodone + acetaminophen); even if you were to just opt for another brand name or generic of the same medication. But just to name a few that you could ask your doctor about, there are: Percocet (oxycodone + acetaminophen) Percodan/Endodan (oxycodone + aspirin) Norco (hydrocodone + acetaminophen) Vicoprofen/Reprexain/Ibudone (hydrocodone + ibuprofen) Please also note that changing medications may not necessarily make it any easier to fill, especially if they are of the sam... ...

was given for pain from my doctor because it was a substitute for lortab? ## This is NOT a substitute for Lortab. Lortab contains Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone. This medication is Tramadol 50mgs, it is listed as a narcotic, because it is derived from an opiate, however, it does not have the same benefits or effects that an opiate does, so it does not work like one. The name brand this is sold under is Ultram. It is not recommended for severe pain treatment. Here's the monograph link with more information: ...

Hydroco Apap 10 500 Mg
Is this legal to cut the medication down this much at one time? I have been on 6 10/500 mg hydrocodone/Lortab for well over a year now for fibromyalgia, scoliosis, arthritis, bulging disc, bone spurs, etc. The clinic dr. decided that he prefers the patients there (all/any that take more than 4) be cut down by 2 a day, now making it 4 daily. Shouldn't he lower the dose slowly just as he slowly raised the dose? There has been no substitute given. I already take ibuprofen too. Now I'm feeling more pain and I HAVE TO WORK. Is this legal? Morale? Is there anything I can do about this? Please help. I live in Indiana ## I know how you feel, but unfortunatly the DEA is breathing down doctors necks because of the very few that are running pill mills. I am not a doctor or a lawyer, but I ... ...
