Lortab combines two types of pain medicine to treat moderate to severe pain. The Hydrocodone (related to codeine) is in a class of drugs called narcotic analgesics (which act in the central nervous system [CNS] to relieve pain), while the Acetaminophen (a less potent pain reliever ) is used to boost the effects of the Hydrocodone.
It is important to know that this medication can become extremely addicting, resulting in a prescription addiction to loratab and your doctor might recommend for you to gradually lower your dose after being on its several weeks. It is a violation of federal law to provide/transfer Lortab to anybody other than the person who is it was prescribed for.
