Lortab is a brand name for Hydrocodone and is usually combined with a large dose of acetaminophen (Tylenol). The highest recommended dose of Tylenol for an adult in a 24 hour period is not to exceed 2,000mg's. That is equal to about 2 tablets of Tylenol, 3 times a day. This is the amount of Tylenol that would typically be included in 4-6 tablets of Lortab. If you are taking more than that in a 24 hour period your liver is absorbing more acetaminophen than it can handle and can cause some serious side effects including pain. This pain can be mistaken as KIDNEY PAIN. Over a long period of time, high doses of Lortab can lead to liver problems, including liver disease and failure. Don't be too alarmed until you have blood work done from your family doctor. A simple test can show whether or not your liver is functioning properly and what you can do to stop the damage before it's too late. There are many variables that can speed the process of Lortab's effect on your liver. These include other medications you may be taking as well as taking the medicine with or shortly before or after consuming alcohol. If you are worried about this please do not hesitate talking to your doctor about having the blood/liver tests done. I have a cousin who was scared to ask her doctor about this and ended up never getting the blood tests done for fear her doctor would cut her off from her pain medication all together. She ended up in the hospital for 4 months after liver failure and almost didn't make it. I'd much rather deal with being honest with my doctor than the possibility of my last trip in life to the emergency room. Below is a list you would typically find from most pharmacies warning labels on Hydrocodone products. If you have anymore questions on this subject please post them in the discussion board and I will try to respond as quickly as possible. Good luck to you and may God bless you and see you through your pain. I've been in your shoes and know first hand how difficult it can be.

Lortab is not used to treat depression. If you are taking it for any other reason than to relieve severe pain, you are abusing it.If you have a prescription for Lortab to treat pain, then it is OK to take this long with your Zoloft. Just remember that it is very addictive and you must take it exactly as the doctor has ordered without taking more.
Time to wait to take Lortab after SuboxoneI have been on Suboxone for 11 months. I had to have surgery 4 months ago and was taking 6mgs. Suboxone per day. Before I decided to take Lortab post-op I discussed this with my pharmacist. I was told that one can safely take Lortab 3-4 hours after last Suboxone dose. I decided to go ahead and tolerated the Lortab very well. Conversely, the same time is needed to resume taking Suboxone.
