Lortab/lorcet: Lortab is Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen and Lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) is the same except a higher amount of hydrocodone.. So it would make no sense to take these two together. It would be like doubling up on anyone of the medications. I doubt very much if this was the advice from the person who prescribed this for your.
