My generic lorcet {Watson 503} have always been pale green. My refill, which is the same medication {strength, shape and mfg.}, but they are white and I believe they had a different imprint. For years I've been legitimately prescribed this medication for pain managment after a Cage was put in my lower back due to degenerative disc disease~surgery was unsucessful for pain relief. Thank You in advance for any information...Peace

Without knowing the imprint on them, I can't check them for you, to see if they are the same medication or not.

However, what I can tell you is that it may be just the color that has changed. Watson has recently begun removing the dye from some of their tablets, due to the fact that it was causing sensitivities in some people and there were some who were straight out allergic to it.

Learn more Lorcet details here.

Can you check them and tell me what the imprint on them is?

Yes, Watson has now removed the dye and the Lorcet 10/650 is white and has a different NDC

I read on line that FDA has made a change of the amount of acteminophen added to each dose... dropped to 325 mg. This is not good because I have a stimulator in my back and a knee replacement. The pain is severe.

Guess the FDA doesn't realize we can buy Tylenol over the counter, eeehhh?! So if you are FORCED to take a lower-Tylenol dose of meds and decide to supplement it with a 500mg Tylenol (because Tylenol also HELPS with the narcotic pain relief!), you end up getting MORE Tylenol than if they let the patient's DOCTOR decide what they need! Idiots! Who the hell didn't think about THAT in their meeting!

Is the white loracet as strong as the green ones? The reason I raise this question is I dont get the same effect.
