Learn More About Lortab and Why People Become Addicted

Lortab is a pain reliever, like Percocet, but it has mixed reviews when it comes to effectiveness. If misused, the drug can cause addiction. Only using medication as prescribed is key. Lortab has hydrocodone and acetaminophen in it, which helps ease moderate to severe pain. Find out why the drug may cause addiction and how to find help for this drug addiction.


Lortab contains acetaminophen and hydrocodone, which helps treat pain but work in different ways. Hydrocodone binds to opioid receptors in the brain, which block pain signals sent by the nervous system. Acetaminophen reduces chemicals in the brain that stimulate pain nerves. This drug is only manufactured in liquid form, so tablets and pills are not available. Generic forms of the drug are available. The drug is known by other brand-names and generic drugs, including:

  • Vicodin
  • Lorcet
  • Norco
  • Vikes
  • Draco
  • Dro

Remember that legitimate Lortab is only in liquid format, so the other drugs saying they’re Lortab in pill form are most likely fake. There is no way to know what has been cut into those drugs.

Using Lortab

Lortab is used only with a health care provider’s prescription. This helps manage severe pain and is important to use only for a short period of time at a low dose. The side effects are similar to opioids, including:

  • Dizziness
  • Lightheadedness
  • Constipation
  • Dry mouth
  • Blurred vision
