Lortab is a combination of Hydrocodone and acetaminophen. Hydrocodone belongs to the opioid class and acetaminophen is a less potent over-the-counter pain relieving medicine. The combination boosts up the analgesic effects and forms a very effective painkiller that can alleviate the pain of severe intensity. The use of Lortab can lead towards addiction as the drug strongly stimulates the reward and pleasure centers of the brain. Abuse of Lortab can even be deadly. Not only because the narcotics suppress breathing but individuals who have become addicted to Lortab start abusing other much stronger opioids. It is a habit-forming drug and carries a high addiction potential. There are many harmful physical and psychological effects caused by the drug. Moreover, addiction ruins all the social, relationship and financial aspects of a human life. Rehabilitation in the proper centers is needed to rectify this issue.
