round white pill with x on one side and 225 on the other sid
1 Reply RSS
please trying to verify if it is a 10 mg lortab or hydrocodone ## Hi carey, By an "x" do you mean to say that the pill is cross-scored (horizontally and vertically)? I'm not seeing any exact matches that fit your description, but came close finding a round white pill with "224" on one side and scored "once" on the other - which is reported to be 30mg Oxycodone HCL tablet, manufactured by Sun Pharma. This manufacturer also makes a 5mg Oxycodone HCL tablet with "223" on one side and scored on the other. However these are the only two pills I've seen that come even remotely close. Other potential matches online appear to have a different 3-digit set of numbers on one side, but do have the "cross-score" on the other. So if anything, I'm ho...

Watson Lortab Formula Change
187 Replies RSS
Does anyone know what Watson did or why they changed their formula for Lortab 10/500? It used to be blue and when I picked up my refill today they are now white. I still have a few days of my blue left but I swapped a few so I can try the white. I'm waiting for it to start working and I took it over 2 hours ago. My rx is 1-2 every 3 hours not to exceed 7 in a day. (my pm dr wants me on a stronger med but anything above hydrocodone makes me euphoric and I can't function) The blue color lortab starts to work within 15 mins. I took my first white color lortab 2 hours ago, waited an hour and took the 2nd and nothing. I will wait 30 mins longer and switch back to the blue until I run out. This sucks. I'm a full time law student, disabled, single mom and can't use my dominate ...

oblong yellow with shiny speckles pill scored on one side no markings
1 Reply RSS
This guy that's a regular at the bar I work at gave me this pill. He said last night he'd bring me a loratab because I have tendonitis in my right arm....I've never seen a pill like this. It's yellowish in color, oblong, has shiny speckles (glitter-like) lightly scored on one side and blank. Not well made...or maybe just old. Thank you for any information you can give me! ## Hello, Caroline! How are you? It would be best to dispose of it. If it doesn't have any markings, it is not a legal U.S. Lortab that's been manufactured for many, many years. All manufactured U.S. prescription tablets are required by law to have imprints to enable their identification, in case of emergency. Without any imprints, it is most likely an over the counter product, of some type, but...

Need to how long it takes for lortab and klonopin? ## Hello, Tracey! How are you? How long does what take? Are you asking how long it takes them to start working? Generally, within about 15 to 20 minutes of taking them, since they are regular release medications. The FDA classifies Lortab as being 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. And Klonopin is a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. It also carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability.

I need to get refill on lortab or Percocet for chronic pain that takes Amerigroup January 2015, a small clinic that will prescribe lortab close to mt Juliet Tennessee ## I'm sorry, but general practice clinics will no longer prescribe such medications, due to the new regulations that were set forth by the DEA last year. If you require such a medication, you'll need to see a specialist, now. Do you currently have a PCP that might be able to refer you to someone? If so, that might be the quickest and easiest way to find the help you need. The FDA lists this medication as being a 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.

I was diagnosed heavy inflammation by my pcp latter cidp by a neurologist. The pcp put me first on lortab took me off and put me on Norco right before I went to the neurologist for a second opinion. The neurologist left me on the Norco. Any advice on which brand or type of 10/325. Norco works best? ## Hello, Pat! How are you? It really depends on you and which one works best for you. Norco and Lortab are the same, they both contain Hydrocodone and Acetaminophen. This is listed by the FDA as being 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. Has the one you've been receiving from your pharmacy worked well for you? ## I would get constipated at first on any of the drugs ...
