Thank you for the query.

Lortab 10 contains acetaminophen and hydrocodone and does not have any interactions with Delsym which do contain Dextromethorphan. So it is safe to take both medicines.
Just note that Dextromethorphan only suppresses cough but it does not treat it. Moreover, if your cough is productive, it should not blocked by such medicines.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
