Lortab acts on the opioid receptors in the central nervous system to relieve the pain. It is a very useful drug when used for short durations for pain relief but the long-term use is not recommended. It diminishes the body’s natural capacity to tolerate pain by reducing the supply of endorphins. This user soon develops the physical and physiological dependence on the drug. Now when the user will not take the drug at timely intervals, withdrawal symptoms will begin to appear. The intensity of symptoms depends on the time duration of drug abuse, dosages, tolerance and individual factors. People who have become addicted face a tougher time while quitting the drug. It becomes much easier if the process is performed under a proper medical supervision in the rehabilitation centers. Controlled therapies and medicines are administered to reduce the withdrawal symptoms and make a pathway of safe recovery.
