I found a half bottle of capsules in my daughter n laws room. She hasnt been to any doctor in the past 5 monthe. The bittle is marked for "Hydrocodin-Acetaminophn tab 10-325 gen for Norco" but doesn't look like what should be in the bottle. Should I be concerned ? ## Never mind, I couldn't find any answers so I flushed them. Thanks.

white watson 3203 versus yellow 10mg/3.75mg
20 Replies RSS
Hi I have a serious question to ask. I have been on Norco 10mg/3.25mg for a while now because I have chronic pain in my back. These pills that I take are yellow in color, and they help a great deal. However, I got my meds filled, and this time I got a white pill that reads on one side Watson 3203, and on the other side a straight line down the middle. This pill has the same mg as my yellow Norco do. Here is the question. Why does this pill not help my pain? What ingredient has been took out. of the white watson 10mg/3.25mg pill? I have read were other people are having the same issue as me. Plus this is not the first time I have got this watson 3203 white pill, and each time I do it does not help my pain and others pain! I hope after reading this people at the watson company may read my...

White Watson 10mg 325 #853
363 Replies RSS
I just recieved a new prescription of norco 853 10/325. The last script was yellow and the new ones are white. The pharmacist said that Watson changed the color but the pill is the same, does anyone know if this is accurate ## Watson has change a few different medications and the colors are different. But the Norco you're referring to is the same medication that you were prescribed prior. It is just as effective as the script you had filled before this one and it's a good thing that you ask the pharmacist, the pharmacist is correct. ## LuLu is correct and so was your pharmacist. There have been several posts on here recently about various Watson tablets being white now. It seems that some people were sensitive or allergic to the dyes they were using, thus they decided to do away...

i need a pain management doctor in the Dayton/Cincinnat Ohio area who will prescribe Norco or some type of med like that.
4 Replies RSS
I have had 4 series of 3 injections in my back which did NOT help at all as well as surgery (two hemi discectomies in my lower back) which helped my sciatica but now it's coming back and my surgeon says he can't do any more surgery. I've had a trial of a spinal cord stimulator which didn't help at all and I have a tens unit. I have fibromyalgia, arthritis, lower back pain and worsening sciatica. I've been taking Norco 10/325 and Neurontin which helps the most, but my family doctor wants me to find a pain management doctor to prescribe these meds now. I am 53. Does anyone know of a good physician who is not afraid to prescribe these medications in this area. Any help is appreciated. Thank you. ## Hello, Beth! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in pl...

10/325 quailiest Verses Watson Verses white or yellow (BRAND NAME NORCO)
106 Replies RSS
Hello Hydrophone world: My experience is this. You can not beat Name Brand scored NORCO 10/325 . However, my experience is Watson is a softer compound, & works faster. Now, the other generic NORCO 10/325 (36 01) scored other side. This is made by QUAILITEST: many people say they suck, because in fact, it is a harder compound to digest/desolve, therefore not getting a good feeling,but the slight slower release makes Quailiest (NORCO) actually kill the pain more so than Watson (GENERIC) 10/325. The watson have the edge, however the Qualitiest last longer & are so dang close, only a Dog may know the difference. Personally me, & all the 4 companies that make generic NORCO can stick it. Your/My Dr. is going to request the yellow dye, I do get allergic reactions minor,but enough t...

Which is stronger: Watson or Sun Pharma 10/325 norco
4 Replies RSS
Is the norco 10/325 176 made by Sun Pharmaceuticals stronger than the norco 10/325 Watson brand? I was taking Watson and they gave me 176. ## Hello, Debbie! How are you? While there can be differences between generic medications, as permitted by the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, what it really comes down to is what works for you. Have you tried taking this one, yet? If so, has it been helping you? The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. ## In my opinion, the Watson brand works so much better than the one imprinted with 176. I've taken both and much prefer the Watsons. ## I finally found a Norco 10/325 that works by Sun manuf. I used to take Watson brand but th...

New white Watson 853 10/325 problem - What is going on???!?
326 Replies RSS
Hello all, I am a longtime chronic pain sufferer. I have taken opiates for pain for over 10 years. I recently got a prescription filled (from a well known pharmacy chain in the U.S.) and I was given these new Watson 853 white (not yellow) hydro 10/325 pills. I wanted to ask the forum here if any of you have had the same experience with them as I have. I know there are some very smart people with advanced chemistry knowledge here that may have delved deeper into whats going on with these things. They are ineffective for me. I've taken hydrocodone 10/325 for 10+ years and have never ever had a problem with pills being ineffective but that is the case with these pills. I've had about every brand you can think of and never an issue. Ever. I thought nothing of the color change when I...

The Norco 10/325 Mallinckrodt works the best for me!
3 Replies RSS
I used to take Norco 10/325 for chronic pain by Watson, but Watson was bought out by Actavis. Wow, the difference in pain control went from 10 to zero. All Walgreens and CVS pharmacy's only carry Actavis, so I called around and finally found the generic that works even better than Watson's, and that's Mallinckrodt, at least for me. Most hospital pharmacies carry Mallinckrodt. Amneal, Qualitest and so many other manufacturers are absolute garbage! I have chronic pain from fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis in every joint in my body. I think those fake manufacturers of pain pills should be shut down. ## They aren't fake manufacturers, under the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, generics are allowed to differ from the name brand, in the amount of the active ingredient, by as much as p...

yellow norco 10 325 what pharmacy
34 Replies RSS
What pharmacy has yellow narcos i need to phill my perscription ## Need a pharmacy in sacramento. Ca that carries yellow narcos 10/325 to phiil my percciption ## Hello, Tee! How are you? I'm sorry, but there is no listing of pharmacies according to which medication they carry from which manufacturer. Additionally, saying they are yellow isn't enough for someone to know which ones you're seeking. There is currently a shortage, due to mandatory manufacturing limits, so they may not be in stock at any pharmacy, until after the new year. 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. What are the markings on the ones you're looking for? Can you please pos...
