Lortab is a semi-synthetic opioid delivered from either of two naturally occurring opiates – codeine or thebaine. This drug is used to treat moderate to severe pain. As a narcotic, Lortab relieves pain by binding to opioid receptors in the brain and the spinal cord. It can cause intense drowsiness if mixed with alcohol or other drugs. Lortab can be habit-forming, which can lead to physical and psychological dependence, but the addiction can vary from person to person depending on unique biological differences.  Mixing Lortab together with other drugs such as cocaine, amphetamines, barbiturates, alcohol, methylphenidate, and many other medications can cause severe adverse reactions that include heart attack, heart failure, amnesia, jaundice, respiratory distress, pulmonary failure, seizures, liver or kidney failure, and coma. When mixing Lortab with alcohol there are some serious health risks involved.

Does Lortab Addiction Control Your Life?

LortabLortab should only be used by the person who has the prescription for it, and should never be shared with others, especially those who have a drug abuse issue. It can become habit-forming so it should always be taken as prescribed, and extreme care should be taken to prevent young teens or children from gaining access to this drug.

If you drink three or more alcoholic beverages per day or have had some type of liver disease in the past you should not take this medication because it contains acetaminophen, which in high doses and prolonged use has proven to cause liver damage.  It may cause you to have side-effects that will slow your reactions and thinking processes, so it is recommended that you avoid driving or doing things that will require you to be alert while taking Lortab. Always tell your doctor if you feel this medication has stopped working like it did at the beginning and never take larger dosage to achieve those desired effects. Following the directions that are on the label is important to avoid dependency or overdose.

Some Effects

If you feel you or someone you know has taken too much Lortab, you should seek help immediately.  A few signs of overdose are sweating, confusion, nausea, loss of appetite, weakness, stomach pains, clammy and cold skin, shallow breathing, fainting, slow heart rate, blue lips and coma. This could be a medical emergency, so don’t hesitate to find Lortab addiction treatment.

If someone has reached a stage where they have been prescribed Lortabs, especially to control and deal with pain, they are in a difficult time. Living life with pain is something no one that has experienced it wishes upon another person.

Lortabs Abused, Addiction, Lose

LortabsLortabs are one of the most addictive painkillers on the market, and because of this all too often one can become addicted to painkillers as they need to crush, chew, snort, or even smoke the pills to seek pain relief. Once one starts using Lortabs in an inappropriate manner, it is a sure sign that the person has become addicted to Lortabs.  This type of addiction is very common with many prescription painkillers.  When this happens, and as the Lortab addiction spirals out of control, getting addiction treatment help is of the utmost importance to make sure the individual gets help in breaking the cycle of addiction. The most appropriate way to beat a Lortab addiction is through the use of an inpatient rehab skilled in dealing with painkiller addiction.

Lortab Addiction Treatment

Lortab addiction treatment is best handled through inpatient rehabilitation. Lortab, a combination of hydrocodone and acetaminophen, is a Class III Narcotic commonly prescribed for pain control. However, even with proper use, it is possible to become addicted to the drug. If and when this occurs, inpatient addiction treatment is the best form of rehabilitation.

Do You Need Lortab Addiction Treatment?

Lortab Addiction TreatmentInpatient Lortab addiction treatment is commonly comprised of three stages: evaluation, stabilization/detox, and behavior modification. A client must first be evaluated to determine the severity of the addiction, and then their immediate condition must be stabilized. Once the client is stable, long-term treatment of the addiction can begin.

Lortab addiction treatment differs from client to client. Because no two clients are the same, no two addictions are the same. Inpatient rehab centers understand this and individualize treatment to match their client’s needs.

Lortab addiction treatment, like many other forms of addiction treatment, commonly begins with detoxification, or “Detox” for short. The detoxification process rids the client’s body of the harmful addictive substance, and can be accomplished in a variety of ways. Once the client has successfully completed detoxification, behavior modification therapy begins.

Behavior modification therapy is how the client learns new ways to deal with the problems that they initially tried to solve with Lortab. Only through long-term behavior modification can a client break their addiction and avoid future relapses. This is why inpatient rehabilitation centers are so much more effective than outpatient centers that simply write the client a prescription to wean them off the Lortab.

Once the client begins behavior modification therapy, medical professionals will monitor the client to ensure steady progress. After successful completion of Lortab addiction treatment, the client will be released, fully prepared with all the tools they need to cope with future problems and avoid potential relapse.

As with most prescription medication addictions, Lortab addiction will require treatment in an inpatient rehabilitation facility where the physical and emotional aspects of addiction are addressed consecutively in order to provide lasting recovery.  For more information about our Lortab addiction treatment, and  treatment options, call us today to find out how our program can help you eliminate this powerful substance from your life.
