How many and what mg. are you taking a day? What sort of withdrawals are you experiencing? Unless you are taking a large amount of Lortabs, the withdrawal symptoms should be very, very mild. Opiate withdrawal is over in three days. Why prolong it? Take some hot baths, anti-diarrheal medicine, and some Ibuprofen. You'll be fine. This is experience talking. Best way to do it. Just stop and get it over with ASAP. What you need to be concerned about is what happens after the withdrawal. That's the hard part.
: I have been on Lortab for several months. When I quit taking them, I get awful migraine headaches and usually end up going to the ER for a shot.
: Lortab is controlling my life. I've been out for a couple of days and the withdrawls are hell. I'm going to see my physician tomorrow and let him know about the withdrawls and abuse of the Lortab I have been taking. Hopefully he can gradually ween me off the the drug. I don't want to live like this anymore.
: If you have any helpful input, please advise. I must get over this addiction. It is affecting the people I love, my family. Thank you for your help.
