Customer Question

Hello I am 53 years old and have a bad neck back arms and hands. My doctor has passed away and I never got a new pain Doctor. I am allergic to codine. I use to take lorecet ten which always made me sick . He would have to prescribe me meds for nausea . However my first doctor gave me loratabs which seemed to work better without illness. I was wondering if I am right about the ingredients .?

That doesn't help me at all . Do they both contain codine
Expert:  Dr. Bridget replied 12 months ago.

No, they only contain Hydrocodone and Acetaminophen. No Codeine at all.

Lorcet and Lortab are the same thing, just a different manufacturer.
