Lortab Overdose

Lortab is a narcotic analgesic, meaning of course that just like morphine both addiction and lethal overdose are possiblities. Lortab is the brand name for the combination of acetaminophen (Tylenol) and hydrocodone. The mane danger assoicated with an overdose of Lortab is respiratory depression. A Lortab overdose happens when you consume more Lortab than your body can safely handle. Overdose of Lortab is primarily due to the high levels of acetaminophen which damages the liver, not strictly due to the hydrocodone component of Lortab.

The symptoms of an overdose from Lortab include:

  • muscle spasticity
  • slow and labored breathing
  • shallow breathing
  • pinpoint pupils
  • bluish skin (fingernails and lips)
  • cold and clammy skin
  • heavy perspiration
  • spasms of the stomach and/or intestinal tract
  • constipation
  • vomiting
  • weak pulse
  • low blood pressure / slow heartbeat
  • drowsiness
  • coma
  • constipation
  • dizziness
  • drowsiness
  • confusion
  • gas or heartburn
  • dry mouth
  • itching
  • flushing
  • chest pain or irregular heartbeat
  • severe rash
  • unusual weakness
  • fever, chills, muscle aches and pains

 

 

  • Drug Facts
  • Lortab taken with alcohol can amplify the effects.
  • Lortab is hydrocodone combined with aspirin.
  • Lortab overdose can cause the lips and fingertips to turn blue.
  • Because Lortab can cause drowsiness, other medicines that also cause drowsiness may increase this effect of Lortab.
