fake hydrocodone pills
Has anyone received Blue Watson 10/500 pills from any pharmacies on line or over the phone. I got 90 that look real, but have the effect of a vitamin. Ripped off again. ## I think I was similarly scammed. The color was greenish, not blue like the regular Watson 10/500 and tasted salty. I had been called 20 times and finally succumbed. Is this your experience too. The phone number was a 305 exchange ## I purchased Norcos over the phone. Came in a vacuumed plastic bag. They were blue with WATSON 540 printed on them. The looked real but when you take them it is like you are on valium, you don't get pain relief. Purchased from a 321 exchange. Anyone else with the same experience? ## I have also received fake pills from a 321 exchange. They are not real and will not exchange or refund yo...

Hydrocodone strength
What is stronger of the two 10/325 or 7.5/750 Hydrocodone ## 10/325 stronger more hydrocodone with 10 mg per pill and only 325ancetametaphen were as the 7.5mg 750 is only 7.5 mg of hydrocodne the hydrocodone is the prescription the 750 and 325 is just the over the count tylonal I awful at spelling. Spell check makes you dumb but I hope this helps ## That is mostly correct, however, you cannot buy Acetaminophen over the counter in higher than 500mgs, which would be Extra Strength Tylenol. But the smaller numbers do refer to the Hydrocodone, which is a narcotic pain reliever, so the higher the number, the higher the dosage and the stronger the medication. The maximum you can get of it in the US is 10mgs. The common name brands for this are Lortab and Vicodin. Common side effects may inclu...

is 10/325 hydro. stronger then 5/325
I didn't ever feel 10/325 of hydro did anything. Now I have 5/325 but have not taken it yet. I am really in pain, ihave a ct tomorrow. ## Hello, Sheryl! How are you? Yes, though it is a medication, please don't think the numbers mean anything odd, the higher the number, the higher the dose. Thus, the 5/325 isn't as strong as the 10/325. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Dear Sheryl, yes! Vernon is right. The 10/325 have double the amount of Hydrocodone than the 5/325. Tens r stronger. The 325 is just the amount of acetaminophen (Tylenol) that's in it.

White scored caplet 126
What is the difference between this and IP204 ## Hello, Rachel! How are you? The tablet with the 126 on it contains 5mgs of Hydrocodone with 325mgs of Acetaminophen, but the one with the IP 204 marking contains 10mgs of Hydrocodone with 325mgs of Acetaminophen. So the dosage is different. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

why does my hydrocarbon 350 have m 360 it
I have hydrocarbon 325 pills that have m 360 on the back. Can you tell me why ## Hello, Mystic! How are you? I'm assuming you mean Hydrocodone? These tablets contain 7.5mgs of it and 750mgs of Acetaminophen and they are no longer being manufactured. The M 360 is just a manufacturers logo. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Are there any other questions or concerns?

hydrocodone and tramadol the three 50 equal to 1 7 5
I ran out of my meds which is hydrocodone 10 325 I'm wondering what the equal to how many tramadol 50 milligramS ## Hello, Twisttle! How are you? I'm sorry, but you can't even convert between the two, they are nowhere even close to being the same in efficacy. The best suggestion I can make is to call your doctor and see what they suggest you do. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Are there any other questions or concerns?
