Norco differences

I changed from watson to interpharm and it seems like its just mot working! Is it me or have other people been through the same thing? ## Hello, Scott! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. And yes, other people have had similar issues. There can be slight variations in the amount of the active ingredients when going from a name brand to a generic, or from one generic to another. The differences are very slight and don't affect most people, but they can cause problems for someone who has been taking the same one for a long time, or for someone that is sensitive to medications. The FDA classifies this medication as being a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, d...

I just noticed my prescription bottle says federal law prohibits refill. It is Norco 7.5 /325mg .Why does it say this? ## Hello, Darlene! How are you? This medication was changed to a schedule 2 drug last year (2014), so you can no longer have refills on it. You'll need to see your doctor each month, just like you would with any other narcotic, to have more prescribed. The FDA classifies this medication 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. Is there anything else I can help with?

230 c 325 mg

Is yellow round pill 230 c the same as Norco ## Hi Amy, The round yellow pill you're describing marked with a C on one side and 230 on the other, contains 10mgs of Oxycodone hydrochloride + 325mg of Acetaminophen. This is NOT the same as Norco. Norco contains Hydrocodone instead of Oxycodone. For added verification on the pill's ID, it's reportedly manufactured by a company called Alvogen; and carries a National Drug Code of 47781-0230. I hope this helps answer your question!

5 Replies RSS
I have both pill m 367 and th watson 853, the pharmacy ran out of one so split it with the 853, anyway I have been taking norco for over 2 years and for some reason neither seem to work for my pain. I am going to talk to my PCP and maybe get a different medication. I went ona few websites and they said one of these norco manufactors went out of buisness. Tank you for your time ## Hello, Teena! How are you? Both of the tablets you mentioned contain 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, they are generics for Norco. Learn more Norco details here. 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. However, if you've been taking it for that long, there's a...

I'm taking norco prescibed by my dr. Can I use a detoxifier while still taking my meds? ## Which detoxifier? I can't check for any possible interactions or problems, without knowing more specifics. Norco is a classified by the FDA as 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. They aren't really necessary, your body does detoxify itself and none of them actually do everything they claim.

Is G307 a pain reliever pill?
2 Replies RSS
I FOUND SEVERAL PILLS THAT HAVE IMPRINT G307. I ASKED AROUND AND WAS TOLD IT WAS A NORCO 10 PAIN RELIEVER. CAN U PLEASE TELL ME WHAT THIS IS? TY ## You found or you bought a bunch of pills? Oh well anyways its hydroxyzine 10mg a antihistamine. Looks like you got ripped off. ## @original poster, You didn't mention what shape or color your pill was either? For the record, Hydroxyzine hydrochloride 10 mg tablets are listed as having a marking of 307 PA, (NOT G307); and they're manufactured by Pliva. So post #1 is wrong about its identification, unless you can prove otherwise? Depending on where or how you came about these pills, my guess is that they're probably not too common since I'm not seeing any specific details online. However, ill look forward to any updates you mig...

Generic Norco m367 10/325
52 Replies RSS
Is crap. I have to take three at a time for 1 hour of pain releif. Anybody else have this problem with M367 - 10/325 ? ## Recently went to refill my norco script and they gave me M367 10/325 instead of the yellow 10/325. One of the yellow pills would last 4 hours. With the m367 I have to take 3 at a time for 1 hour of pain relief. Let me know if any of you have encountered the same with M367 10/325. Thank you ## I'm sure there are others that have had similar problems, there can be some slight fluctuations from one generic medication to another, so not all of them work well for everyone that tries them. For example, I can take this same tablet and it really hits me very hard, after taking just one, I have good pain relief and am pretty much tired and groggy for most of the day. You ...

Hi! My friend asked me to help her identify a pill...pinkish, coated, shiny elongated oval pill. Says 500 on the unscored side, other side has a G before the score, and then 32 following the score. She says it is shaped like Norco but is a bit smaller. Thank you for your time and attention! ## Hello, Bensma! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Glenmark Generics and they list it as containing 500mgs of Naproxen. The FDA classifies this medication as being a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's used to treat pain, fever and swelling. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you for your prompt and informative reply! It is very much appreciated. ## You are very welcome! Ha...

The maximum dosage available of it contains 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 325ms of Acetaminophen. The FDA classifies these medications as being narcotic analgesics. They carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. Are there any markings on the one you were taking so I can double check the dosage for you? Thanks! ## yes there is markings they are as fallows yellow in color,oval shaped marked one side with a "v" the other with the numbers 36 01 ## Thank you, Mudd!

what is the correct dosage strength of norco
4 Replies RSS
I've been taking 7.5/325 norco for years now for chronic pain. The last couple of months, its been hard to get my scripts filled. Someone said the fda changed the dosage to 7.5/300.....which is correct? ## Hello, Bonnie! How are you? No, they have made no recent changes, the ones with 325mgs of Acetaminophen are the standard dose. However, fewer companies are manufacturing it, now, which may create a shortage in some areas. The FDA lists this medication 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## The correct norco strength ## Thank you so much for the info.....I have been taking it since 2003... (4 shoulder surgeries...
