  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Pain)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 5 x 325 mg-10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I take the 10/325 dosage. I would rather just take the "10" without taking any Tylenol as this really is not necessary. The Hydrocodone is the pain killer that I need for MS pain. I would NOT be able to go to work full-time still without this. I wen't through five (5) years of agony before my doctors would give me anything and missed a LOT of days of work.
Cost: $25-49 monthly

Oct 10, 2011 (Started Aug 05, 2008)

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Pain)
  • Side effects
    Mild (Stomach upset, Constipation)
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 2 x 500 mg-2.5 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I believe I may have developed a tolerance to Lortab and it does not work as well as it might have in the past. It helps tremendously for pain and I take as few as I am able 1-2 a day typically. Frequency depends on activities. It is helpful when I struggle with diarrhea because it slows my bowel down. I notice no impairment whatsoever and can function fine.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Stomach upset
