What is Lortab Used For | What Does Lortab Treat
There are so many prescription pain medicines available that people often have questions as to what each of them is and what they do. One commonly prescribed medicine is called Lortab, which is a brand name. The brand name and generic versions contain hydrocodone bitartrate, which is made from codeine, and acetaminophen.
Lortab works by binding to opioid receptors, which we’ll discuss more below, and it’s prescribed in varying strengths, primarily based on the amount of hydrocodone, but also sometimes the strengths vary based on the amount of acetaminophen. Lortab tablet strengths include 2.5, 5, 7.5 and 10 mg, which go up in strength based on the number.
