Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX
Lortab and dexedrine does not break down into morphine, and is therefore not detected by these tests so they will know that the source of positive morphine isnt from these drugs. There is no point of not telling the true because there are very specific tests which can confirm everything you say.
You can explain that you used it for medical purposes.
Wish you good health.Regards
