Help ID half a pill
3 Replies RSS
Hello. I found half a pill in my husbands pants while doing laundry. It's a off white/ light yellow pill. One side looks like it has a V or maybe a W (only have half the pill) the other side looks like a 6 or a 9. I do know that he was 'feeling good on only half of it' (from a text I saw on his phone) I asked him about this and he just shrugged me off and got mad. I would really like to know what I am up against and info would be helpful! I do have two pictures of it. ## @IDme, Might you be referring to a V 36 01 generic Vicodin tablet, that is light yellow in color? These oblong pills have a score line down the center for dividing the tablet in half, and from what I can tell, if you held the half containing a "V", you'd also have the 3 or 6 on the opposite half....

Fake yellow v 3601
44 Replies RSS
I refilled my prescription and received some yellow 10/325 vicodin. I normally take my dose and feel so much better, but the ones I just got make me so so sick. I vomit and feel hungover. I am concerned these are a bad batch or something I need them for my pain but am so scared to take these particular ones again. How can I tell if they are fake and/or bad? Please help. ## @Concerned patient, If you're receiving these meds through your doctor from a licensed pharmacy there should be no reason to even question whether or not they're real/fake. Pharmacies don't dispense fake medication, but often times they do dispense ineffective brands/generics that lack quality from cheap manufacturers. I usually don't see too many complaints pertaining to the yellow V 36 01 from Qualit...

best norco brand
20 Replies RSS
Hi, i get the yellow norco pill with a cursive v and 3601 on the back. Is there a better brand? ## Vintage Pharmaceuticals Inc. manufactures the pill V 3601. Watson Pharmaceuticals also manufactures this drug. More specifically "Watson 358" is the same dosage as the pill you are describing. And as far as I know, the brand name Watson is among the most popular. But based on this information maybe you can ask your pharmacy/doctor for the Watson brand (Watson 358) and see if you feel a difference in effectiveness. Hope this helps! Please post back if you have any other questions or comments. ## what pharmacies use this watson or vintage kind? i got the m357 and its horrible. publix and walmart both use this..i dont wantit again ## YOU ARE SO RIGHT!

what is the shelf life for a pill imprinted with V 2355
1 Reply RSS
I have a pill with a V on one side and 2355 on the other and I want to know what the shelf life is? The contents of the pill are: Acetaminophen 325mg + Butalbital 50mg + Caffeine 40 mg. ## If it was dispensed to you in anything other than the original sealed factory container, the expiration is one year from the date you received, but it could also be lower, if it has been exposed to the elements that hasten degradation, such as heat, light, and moisture. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Pain Medication In Louisiana
212 Replies RSS
I need to find a Dr. To write a Rx. For hydrocodin for chronic back pain, where can I find one in Southern Louisiana? ## Well, first of all, there is no listing to refer to that tells you what doctors in any given location will prescribe any given medication. And the next issues is that you really aren't going to be able to see a new doctor and ask for a specific medication, because they are taught to see that as drug seeking behavior. Learn more Vicodin details here. Your best bet, if you need long-term pain management, is to see a pain management specialist and set up an appointment to get in the door, without asking is they will prescribe anything. Then make sure that they get a full copy of your medical records, so the documented medical problems and notes from your prior doctor...

25 Replies RSS
recently my perscription has been changed from yellow norcos 325/10 to white norcos 325/10 but people have been telling me the effects are different could someone please explain the difference ## Are they the same pill, with the same marking? Or did your pharmacy just provide you with a new one from a different manufacturer? Learn more Norco details here. There are some manufactured by Watson that have had the die removed and some people have said that they don't seem to work as well as the old tablets with the dye in them. However, you haven't provided enough information for anyone to really be able to help you. ## Dear backache101, the white ones are different. They are ineffective and come with a myriad of side effects, some potentially dangerous. Be careful. See if the pharm...

expired hydrocodone/acetaminophen - safe to use or not
2 Replies RSS
substituted for vicodin is hydrocodone acetaminophen 5/500 white oblong shaped tablet imprinted with l544 and has an expiration date of 03/09/2013. Can this still be used safely? ## Hello, Zettie! How are you? White, oblong tablets with L544 on them are not Hydrocodone, nor any type of narcotic. These tablets are manufactured by Perrigo and they list them as containing 650mgs of Acetaminophen in an extended release formulation. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness and headache. Regarding expired medications, most tablets don't become dangerous, once they are expired, but they do tend to lose effectiveness, so you should dispose of them. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Can 4 year old 10mg hydrocodone still be taken and effective fo...
