New white Watson 853 10/325 problem - What is going on???!?
306 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...

White Watson 10mg 325 #853
344 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...

Web Prescriptions for norco and how reliable they are
8 Replies RSS
Hello everybody. I'm new to this site. I have a couple of questions. .. im sorry if I'm in the wrong place or am asking the wrong question a but after a few Google searches this seemed to be the best forum for me to post in. I'm a 34 year old male from southern california. I have had a herniated disc in my back since 2006. I was getting treated for it back then when I had insurance. .. that was of course before my job caught Wind of my injury to which they quickly notified our "risk management' dept. And they quickly made a case to try and get rid of me due to me being a liability for a potential workers comp case. Long story short they were successful. I lost my job, insurance, pride, etc. amongst a bunch of other things. So I had to take odd jobs all of which were ...

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Pain Meds In Orange County Ca
31 Replies RSS
I am 50 and work a hard labor job for 25 years. I am in chronic pain constantly. I want a better quality of life and to continue to work. I need a Doctor in Orange County, CA that can prescribe Norco for my pain. ## The main issue here may be due to the fact that you're asking for/looking for, a specific pain medication, especially one that contains a narcotic. Many doctors will see that as drug seeking behavior, it is something they are taught to watch out for in new patients. The best thing you can do is to see a new doctor and make sure that they receive a full copy of your medical records, so your records can speak for themselves. A doctor will be more likely to follow the information and prescribing practices of their fellow physicians. Does anyone know a good doctor in the are...

Norco refill question
2 Replies RSS
I have a prescription for Norco 4x a day, 120 pills total. The dr has written it for 20 day supply. When would be the soonest I could submit my refill? She wrote the refill for December 15th, last month I filled it on the 20th. Would I have to wait until the 20th again or can I submit it to CVS on the 15th? ## Anna, If the doc dispensed #120 with a sig. of one qid that's a 30 day supply. You'd have to wait 30 days from the filled on date so the 20th would be your available date. ## Do u get the norco 853's and 120 a month? I was wondering if i could ask my dr. to up my script from 90 to 120 a month because they dont seem to be working that good. Is this possible?

fake norco Test
3 Replies RSS
There are many fake Norcos out there....BEWARE!!!! Yellow, peach, and white ones....best way to find out is when u put them in a clear glass of water they dissolve real easily and into bits and pieces ## Tje real Ones dissolved real easy of fake ? ## Not all fakes are created equally, and therefore the dissolution of a pill in a glass of water may only hold true for certain batches coming from a specific region. So I say the only sure way to protect oneself against fakes is to get a prescription filled at a licensed pharmacy. However, with counterfeits looking more and more like their real counterparts, anything less than a lab analysis is still a gamble in my opinion. Having said that, Norco tends to be one of the more commonly prescribed narcotic pain relievers. I would think if someb...

Generic Norco m367 10/325
383 Replies RSS
Is no good. I have to take three at a time for 1 hour of pain relief. Anybody else have this problem with M367 - 10/325? Has anyone else noticed that meds from certain manufacturers do not work as well for them? ## 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 ju...

pain pill 2172 norco
39 Replies RSS
is this a generic norco? From walgreens white oval pill 2172 scored on back side blank ## will 2172 have the same effect as 3202? how much more friggin' detail do u want? ## @RPMJR, Yes, a white oval pill with 2172 is generic Hydrocodone Bitartrate 5mg + Acetaminophen 325mg with a National Drug Code of 0591-2172. Seems like a lot of people here on MedsChat have asked about this pill just within the past couple days so I'm assuming it's a relatively new product and not much info has been posted on the internet. For verification, Actavis Pharmaceuticals is the manufacturer. @Mr. Breeze, 2172 and WATSON 3202 are the same drug with the same listed dosage... But as many of us have come to find out, generic drugs tend to vary in efficacy from one tablet to the next. Furthermore, e...
