Why Go to Lortab Rehab?

Why go to Lortab rehab?Lortab is a drug that contains a combination of hydrocodone, a narcotic pain-reliever, and acetaminophen, a less potent pain-reliever that increases the effects of hydrocodone. Combination drugs containing acetaminophen and hydrocodone have been controversial, as they have been linked to deaths, especially when combined with alcohol and other drugs. Because the liver metabolizes acetaminophen, mixing it with alcohol can be extremely toxic.
