Is it possible for lortab to make my throat swell up even though i've been taking it for years?

Is it possible for lortab to make my throat swell up even though i've been taking it for years?

Lortab and throat: If you have been on the same medication for many years the answer is no. Probably what has happened is that your pharmacy gave you a "lortab" generic made by a different manufacturer than the one you have been using - as a result the fillers may be different and you are probably having an issue with this. ...Read more

Im developing a sore throat, can i take keflex for infection and norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) for pain? Are there any interactions? Until i have time to get to the dr on wed

Sore throats are almost always due to viruses, which cephalexin won't help at all; it would just make it harder for your doctor ro diagnose you. And a narcotic is giant overkill for a "developing" sore throat. Plain acetaminophen (e.g. Tylenol etc) is enough. ...Read more
