I have in my hand two narco tablets which both look alike in size and shape one is a 7.5 mg and the other a 10 mg both are white and made by Watson the only way to tell the difference is the 7.5 mg has imprinted on it Watson 3203 and the 10 mg has Watson 853. My question is why in the hell would a pharmaceutical company make these pills look so much alike are they not afraid of mixups? If you check it out you will see why I am upset about this since they stopped putting the color onto these pills its hard to tell the difference. Someone is going to get a mix up and probably either over dose or not get enough medication for there pain.

Hello, Jeff! How are you?

I do understand your concern, but it is the markings that are used to tell them apart. If you just go by the shape, size and color, there are many on the market that look very similar, including some over the counter medications.

However, law dictates that the markings must be different on prescription products, so they can be identified and they must be logged with the FDA.

Are there any other questions or concerns?

Its just they look so much alike that the pharmacist could mix them up if they didn't pay attention to the numbers and a person that's taking a 7.5 narco could get a 10 mg instead and may of or a person who takes the 10 mg narco get a 7.5 mg narco and think there medication isn't working.
