my sister was taking the medication LORTABS for more than an year.presently doctors tell her she requirements to go cold -turkey as they call upon it . she has hysterics attacks & anxietyattacks , sweats and feels nauseaded and just about doesn’t sleep at nights .she be told by her doctor she would have to stay at the hospital for a week . MY doctor will NOT donate them to me no more than a month when i’m in throbbing cause she say they are addictive and narcotics. why her doctor prescribe them to her for so long , don’t seem right . she wishes to quit cold-turkey on her own to avoid hospital stay . can a person do it on their own ? she is diebetic & have heart problems. she also has big blood pressure. i didn’t find out till recently that she be taking them for OVER a year . has anyone gone through this ? I sure could use your sustain & ideas . thank- you .
