With drugs like Lortab (a brand name for the prescription opioid drug hydrocodone), it's hard to distinguish between the physical symptoms of Lortab dependence and Lortab addiction. Using Lortab over a long period of time can cause physical dependence, even if you use it appropriately and don't abuse it.
There are certain signs that doctors who prescribe drugs like Lortab usually look for in order to be sure they aren't prescribing to an addict. Red flags include patients who go through their prescriptions more quickly than they should if using it according to directions, see several different doctors or frequently switch doctors (known as "doctor shopping"), have excuses for needing another prescription (like they lost the first one), or insist that no other drug will work.
