A combination of acetaminophen and hydrocodone, Lortab is a very popular prescription drug that has a high rate of abuse. Lortab is used for pain and as an effective cough suppressant for those who suffer from a chronic cough. While Lortab is a useful and necessary drug for those who choose to use it as prescribed and who can quit using Lortab when the need subsides, it is incredibly easy to get addicted to and can be an incredibly dangerous habit.
How do I know if I have a problem?
Most of the time an addiction to Lortab happens slowly. The patient is prescribed Lortab for a medical purpose and they find that they need more and more of the drug to achieve the same effects that they were once receiving from a smaller amount. If you find that you are “doctor shopping” or exaggerating your symptoms to receive more medication, you may have a problem with Lortab. If you know that you do not need the medication for a medical purpose but you are still finding illegal means to obtain Lortab, you need to contact Meridian Treatment Solutions immediately to consult with a professional that can recommend the right method of care for your level of addiction.
