Lortab is a brand name for ‘Hydrocodone’, a semi-synthetic opiate that can produce similar effects to OxyContin by acting on the opioid receptors in the brain. If the drug is taken repeatedly, a person becomes liable to develop dependence and addiction. The drug in higher doses produces the pleasant and euphoric effects that have led to its massive recreational use among the people. The body soon develops a tolerance and same doses fail to deliver the required effect. The doses have to be increased in order to achieve a similar High. Lortab has many adverse effects on the body and mind. Even the medical prescriptions are restricted for long-term use. Many deaths have also been reported as a result of Lortab abuse and overdose.
