personally i think, the DEA, is cracking down, i know the doctors are scared their gonna lose their license, where i live they are getting ridiculous about it! there is an epidemic, which in return is ruining it for us folks who really need the stuff to just even feel a little comfort from excrutiating pain, there is even a brand called "qualitest" for God sakes! not positive, but i believe, food and drug adm., are lowering the strength, to get american's off the drug!!!!! ## From what I've seen, Watson does have a yellow and white version of their "853" generic Acetaminophen + Hydrocodone tablets. They list the dosage as still being 325/10 in the newer white ones, however, there have been numerous complaints from patients who have tried both versions, saying tha... ...

Norco 10 325 Mg Tab
1 Reply RSS
Why is it small and yellow, I was taking the lortab blue pill ## The color and size don't actually mean anything, the company may just manufacture their pills differently, so they use less fillers, than other manufacturers. What are the markings on the tablet in question? The name brand Norco that is a yellow tablet in the 10/325mg dosage is oval and has the marking NORCO 539 on one side of the tablet. There is also a generic, that is a yellow, oval with the marking WATSON 853. Another yellow, oval one with the marking 3601 on one side and a V on the other side. Do any of these match the tablet you have? If not, please post back with markings and I will gladly check it for you. ...

NORCO color change to white Watson/Activus
3 Replies RSS
I have been using Norco 10/325 for 5+ years. The last prescription arrived with a color change. (From yellow to white) The difference is life changing. After 30 minutes, I become sleepy, the exact opposite of the yellow tablets which gave me energy along with reduction in pain. I have had both hips replaced, resulting in severe back pain. The Norco has allowed me to live normally for 6 hours a day. Is there any way or anywhere that I could get the original yellow tablets? ## No, the yellow ones are no longer being manufactured. The company removed the dye from them, due to issues with people being allergic to it, or suffering from sensitivities, which has resulted in the appearance of the white ones that are now on the market. Learn more Norco details here. The new side effect of sleepi... ...

yellow norco 10 325 advise
2 Replies RSS
I have been reading this BBs discussed w/ numerous pharmacists some understand and others just nod but nowhere is it not known or been said the yellow beats the white even when made by the same company. I believe this from first hand experience. It no longer matters to me if I simply have an affinity for yellow or colored pills in general. Yellow is good, if the pills are the same defunety I will take the small yellow Norco 10/325 (x2) rather than a handful of the white ones. Is that simple enough? The company needs to know yellow = great, white = bad and do whatever they have been doing change nothing. It is ridiculous to stress chronic pain patience over 1 part per million or some $00.02 die per 1000 pills or more just go with what works please. Put a V in it and make it tight with a ... ...

just wondering witch one is truly stronger,the norco 750 or the 10mg methadone ## Hello, Mudd! How are you? There is no 750mg of Norco. 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!

norco 539 imprint. The 539 is slightly different than the imprint on the available picture of this product. Could it be counterfeit? The color is a darker yellow but I think that's ok. ## When you order from a foreign country, you always run the risk of getting counterfeit products, so yes, that is a possibility. However, some variations in the color and imprint are normal and do happen just through the normal manufacturing process. Norco contains 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, it is a narcotic pain reliever. Is anyone else familiar with these pills? ## Just as a follow -up on my NORCO 539 imprint inquiry...if the pill is NOT licenced to be made by WATSON how can one verify the ingredients? I guess chemical analysis but that is expensive. Any ideas? ## Verwon real... ...

Does Norco Contain Codeine
5 Replies RSS
Norco is the brand name by Watson for 10mg Hydrocodone and 325mg of acetaminophen, they also make the generic. Norco is yellow in color and caplet shaped.Originally it was only 10mg, now it's 7.5 and 5, hydrocodone and the same Tylenol in all. Has no codiene in it. Hydrocodone is a semi synthetic drug, a ketone of codeine and is 8 times stronger than codiene, mg to mg.has a more sedative effect and has a half life of 3.8 hrs compared to codiene's 2.5 hrs. ## I've been taking Norco, 10-325, for over fifteen years on an occasional basis because of back pain due to auto accidents, surgeries. I take the same ammount now as fifteen years ago. I alternate between Norco, and Tylenol - also on an occasional basis, so I don't develop a tolerance to N. and have to increase the dos... ...

I get a script every month for Norco 10/325, and the pharmacy had the Watson yellows. Then around May or so the pharmacy had a different labs' Norco.

percodan ## I've been on Norco 10/325s x 2, 10/day for 5 yrs and Opana 20mg x 7 = 140mgs for 4 yrs now. Started at 10mg and worked my way up in the past 4 yrs. Now the Norco doesn't do much for the pain anymore nor do I even get a buzz, so my doc switched me to Roxicodone 30mg x 6/day. Am I going to go through withdrawls from the Norco or will the Roxicodone keep me from having them? I've taken Roxicodone before, but I think they were 5s or 15s. Am I going to notice a difference and get high also? Should I do what I've read or atleast try to take a pill and a 1/2hr later blow one? I want to get rid of the pain and also get high.

Small oval pill with 10/325 on back ## I think its a Hydrocodone/APAP 10mg Hydrocodone and 325mg APAP. ## This could actually be the Hydrocodone/APAP, which the brand name is Norco, or this could be Oxycodone/APAP, which the brand name is Percocett. It means that you have either 10 miligrams of hydrocodone or 10 miligrams of oxycodone, and only 325 milligrams of tylenol, which is the least amount of tylenol that they prescribe with these. It depends on the color and any othe rmarkings of the pill, which one you have. It is a pain killer. ...

I'm having difficulty finding a good doctor who doesn't scrutinize or is skeptical to patients for wanting pain meds, Norco 10/325's for pain is what I have been prescribed in the past for my medical condition. Please Help if you can refer me to a good doctor who listens and understands the patients! Thank You! M ## Hi, Eme! Sorry about the problem you're having and that you're in pain. No one should have to suffer. However, doctors have no choice but to be skeptical and scrutinize. If they don't and their prescribing practices are found to be questionable, they risk losing their license to practice medicine. The best thing you can do is to set up an appointment with a new doctor and then make sure that they receive a full copy of your current medical records. If... ...

308 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... ...

Not long ago I was given by the pharmacy a Norco IP110. Where as I had pushed this bottle aside and forgot it, I was dumb these are The same as M367 which is norco, Opiate pain relief. I as well was at my aunts she had thrown about 50 of them away, she thought they were tylenol from the generic at walmart, though I had stopped her. My point, when the pharmacy gives you NEW SHAPED pills and or color etc... They often forget to post the bottle. I almost made a very big mistake. The way things are in the world Opiates are hard to get perscribed and I for one allergic to everything but this, LOOK at the bottle question the pharmacy. ## Yes, that is correct, both tablets you mentioned contain 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, the active ingredients in Vicodin, or Norco.

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.

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!

yellow dye/tartrazine in qualitest hydrocodone 10 325
2 Replies RSS
Is the yellow dye in the Qualitest hydrocodone tablets tartrazine, aka FD & C yellow # 5? Many people, myself included, are highly sensitive to this dye. Lots of manufacturers still use it, for unknown reasons. But some have switched to an iron compound for the yellow color (who needs it?!). I have spent much time online trying to get this info, to no avail. If anyone knows, your response would be greatly appreciated! ## Hello, Bluecat! How are you? Actually, it is listed as being FD&C yellow #6. 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## My son-in-law takes the yellow Norcos. Then one day, he picked up his meds ... ...

Is G307 a pain reliever pill?

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.

Changes to Inactive Ingredients
1 Reply RSS
Is there any company anywhere still manufacturing the old YELLOW Norco? (10/325 Hydrocodone Acetaminophen - formerly available by prescription from Activis/Watson.) It was suggested that a Canadian Pharmacy might still have this medicine available. It will be a year in August. When the color changed, so did my life. The side effects are horrific. Chronic pain sufferers have been lumped together with abusers. When I asked what, if any of the inactive ingredients had been changed, I was told "that's proprietary" Considering that every seed in a loaf of bread must be identified and labeled?? So, my second question- Is there any way to force the release of this information? I am not interested in litigation - takes forever. Just want to know what has changed! ## Hello, Ann! How ... ...
