I ran out of my prescription on Tuesday, well I had only two left, but I cannot get my RX until in the morning. I have only had 1 7.5 mg tablet in over 48 hours. I have been taking Xanax periodically during the day, but I basically don't feel to bad. I still have one 7.5 mg. tablet with me, and I cannot pick up my RX until tomorrow between 9:30 & 10:30. Since it has been a couple of days since I have had any substantial amounts of Lortab, that maybe my withdrawals aren't going to be so bad? I have taken alot more Lortab in a day that is prescribed, but since Tuesday I have only had like 4 pills.

Should I be having worse withdrawals than I am. One time a couple of years ago, I took Ultram for a month or two, and when I ran out, I quit taking them, and at that same time, I had run out of my anti-depressant, oh my gosh, I had the week from hell. I never want to go through that again. I feel pretty good right now, but I have taken 2 xanax today. I guess I am just trying to get some input into whether I should expect it to be worse tommorrow, or if this is the extent of the withdrawals.
Hi, I am sitting in front of my computer trying to distract myself because today is the day I am going to the MD for Suboxone. I have been taking Lortab for a long time, prescribed and very addicted....I hope you take back your power too and find a MD soon, I will take my first dose of Suboxone today at 3:30 pm. I am sick of taking Lortab , it has taken over my life .There is help for you too.
How long were you taking the Lortab and in what quantity? I'm sorry if you have written this before but I haven't been on here in a long time. I used to take opiates on a regular basis and when I went off I did it on my own. Which was not easy. But at the time I was too afraid to admit to my doc's that I needed the help. If you have that option I would recommend it! But if not, it is possible to do on your own. It takes work though. But if you write back a little more info I might be able to help you more with tips, etc... of what I did. Also, if you could write why you started taking them. I know for myself I had a severe pain problem for many years and that is what got me hooked on them. But I can try to help as best I can! Just need more info.
