Comment from: 19-24 Female on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: October 11

This medication was prescribed to me after I had fractured my in two places. I found this medication helpful in the treatment of pain due to its short onset and long duration. Also, two doses of this medication worked more effectively than four doses of liquid Motrin throughout the course of the day. I can only speak for myself but my insurance co-pay made this prescription cheaper than purchasing an OTC pain reliever (Tylenol/Motrin oral suspension). The narcotic effect is enjoyable, I can understand how people would abuse this drug.

My 8 year old son was put on this med because Tylenol w/codeine was ineffective after a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy. This med has been fairly effective for pain, however he has had constant nausea, no appetite, sleeps all the time, and is "out of it" when he is awake.

My son (2 1/2 y/o) fractured his femure. Dr gave this as medicine for pain. Gave him half a dose (2ml vs 4 ml) and son woke up screaming after a couple of hours. He looked terrified and was unable to calm him down. Heart rate rate was not normal, breathing was labored. Took him into ER and DR said nightmares are a common side effect for little children. Then got T3 in place of lortab. Highly encourage parents weigh their options prior to giving this med to young children.
