Lortab is the trade name for a prescription medication used to treat moderate to severe pain that contains acetaminophen and hydrocodone. Hydrocodone is a narcotic pain reliever used to alter the way the brain interprets pain signals. Acetaminophen is a pain reliever that intensifies the effects of hydrocodone. Together, these medications come together to create a single tablet that can be taken in order to effectively treat pain.
Lortab is a common type of pain reliever, but unfortunately it is also one that is commonly abused in certain situations. Lortab is available in both tablet and liquid form. Store this medication in a cool, dry environment away from moisture and heat. A kitchen cabinet is probably a suitable storage location, but a bathroom medicine cabinet is unlikely to...
Drug addiction is a compulsive, uncontrollable and chronic need of a chemical or substance no matter what the consequences are. Addiction to Drugs is a very complex disease that impacts the brain. The desire, cravings and need for the drug or chemical is so powerful, the abuser can no longer function without it.
A very common myth is that an individual that has a drug addiction is ‘morally weak’. What people don’t understand is that brain function is altered with chronic abuse and the addict no longer has self control. Many recognize their addiction and are miserable but just can’t stop on their own due to the over-whelming desire and need of the substance. Over time, when there is an addiction to drugs present the brain sends very intense impulses throughout the body for the need of more of the drug.
I have been on methadone for 5 yrs and have been sober. I do not abuse the program nor continue to use illegal drugs. Today I have full custody of my two children pay rent I go to clinic once a month and most of all I'm part of society. I consistently feel that I have to defend myself to the jugdemental ignorance of ppl who say I traded addictions that I'm not clean or whatever. 17 yrs of destoying myself going to prison and basically being a failure compared to enjoying myself...
I think the baby with severe birth defects due to the mothers drug use looks more like a baby born with a neural tube defect due to lack of prenatal Folic acid consumption but what do I know
I am a 33 year old mom of four children. I have been on prescription methadone for almost 12years. I am wanting to detox from the medication to see if i am actually in pain or if I am addicted to methadone. I sometimes feel that I could be a better mother, a better person, if it weren't for my everyday usage of pain medication. Any help or information on this subject would be much appreciated. I am looking for any information that could better help myself and my family. Thank...
Prescription drugs or any drug for that matter will effect different people differently. The most common behavior I've seen of those abusing prescription drugs is that they're the ugliest when they're not on the drug. Very moody and short tempered.
hi can anyone tell me how to deal with withdrawl symptoms from fent while i am getting started on methadone without using my drug of choice? the doctor started me on 20 ml two days ago it does nothing!! please...any advice would be appreciated! doc wants to see me on day 7 to up dose by 10 or 15 ml if he waits a week every time to up my dosage it is going to take too long to get to the 60 ml that he thinks i will probably stabilize at! from what i have read from so many people it is unusual...
I'm so glad this comments are filled with people like you. Kratom literally saved my life after being addicted to oxycodone then suboxone. I was on suboxone for 4 years before I found kratom. The w/ds from suboxone was worse than the oxys! Kratom allowed me to taper down easier due to requiring you to take grams instead of milligrams. It's so hard to taper when .1mg is active. You are always over or under dosing. I hope these prohibitionazis will gtfo kratom case.
Richard, I have to agree with you about the time span to detox off Zanax. I did it on my own and it took 5 and a half months. I was taking .25 four times a day for a year and was unable to think logically, depressed and more anxious than ever. Zanax throws the chemicals in your brain so far off balance, that it can destroy the ability to think coherently. You were on much higher dose for much longer than I, so 5 days to detox could have been torture for you. Also, I supplemented during the...
I'm replying years later so I hope I'm a help. I've been on Methadone off & on since 1972. This time it's a 15 year run. I stay clean on it. I get tablets and two weeks take home. When I worked out of town I got 28 day take outs. I've detoxed many times in my life. I've even used Heroin for 2 months then kicked heroin using 3 days methadone. So much is in our heads. I do know every time I detox off methadone I start using again. So for me I accept my lot in...
It can kill!
Excellent comment. "Just get through the day and live to fight again." Perfect. :)
I had an addiction to SOMA for about ten years from 2003 to 2013. It was first prescribed after a serious car accident that left me immoble for several months and caused muscle spasms. The doctor stopped authorizing refills, but I was already hooked. Getting more was easily as I purchased it from outside the US having it delivered to my door. Without the pills I became anxious and sometimes aggitated in addition to being physically uncomfortable. I took the pills daily simpky to get through a...
I disagree, I get it two weeks at a time and when needed I got 28 days take home. Yes I've been clean for years and been on methadone for years. It works.
