When should I call my doctor if I am taking Lortab?

If you are taking Lortab (hydrocodone and acetaminophen), a prescription medicine to treat moderate to moderately severe pain, call your doctor if you experience slowed or irregular breathing or chest tightness. These symptoms can be serious. You should also be alert for signs of an allergic reaction to the drug, such as swelling of your face, itching or a rash. These require emergency medical help. You should also get emergency medical help if you think you have taken too much Lortab.

Call your doctor if you experience other side effects that bother you or don't go away, such as nausea, vomiting, dizziness, anxiety or a dry throat.
