About Lortab Addiction
Lortab is a narcotic analgesic which contains hydrocodone and acetaminophen. Lortab is prescribed as a pain reliever to patients suffering from moderate or severe levels of pain, thanks to its narcotic analgesic properties, i.e. works by binding to the body`s opioid receptor which is highly concentrated in the nervous system and brain. Hydrocodone is listed as a group of drugs popularly referred to as sedative pain reliever. Conversely, Acetaminophen is a less potent painkiller, but it escalates the effects of Hydrocodone exponentially. The use of both narcotics is used as pain relievers.
Just like any other class of pain prescription medication, Lortab is highly abused. One of the key factors that lead to the abuse of Lortab is the addictive nature of one of its major component called Hydrocodone. Hydrocodone is a synthetic variant of codeine-derived from poppy, and it`s highly addictive, particularly for people with a history of drug abuse. Apart from addiction to Lortab, it poses a risk factor to future addiction to strong opiates like heroin.
