Which is stronger??id like to know before I take one ## Hello, Kathy! How are you? Watson Pharmaceuticals lists the one with the 853 marking as containing 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, while they list the one with the 3203 on it as containing 7.5mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. The FDA classifies this medication 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.

White Watson 853 not near as strong as the yellow ones. WTF has changed. I know I used to be about 5-6 a day of yellows everyday. Now with the whites, I can take 10-15?? You tell me their the same?? Bull... I couldn't take that many of the yellows if I wanted to. If I had to guess, coming from someone that took these everyday, is that the white ones are like half the strength as the yellow ones. No way they are the same. Don't care what the box says. Try them and you will see. Government I'm sure controlling meds, just like turning the good, helpful OCs into completely useless OPs. ## Hello, Eight8! How are you? I'm sorry that you're having a problem.

White Watson 853

So recently I received a white Watson 853 that looks identical to the yellow ones; size, shape, imprint. Everything checks out except it does not feel as strong as the yellow. I was then told that Watson is not manufacturing yellow ones anymore so I checked the Watson/actavis website. They had no info on white 853. Are these fake? ## Hi Michael, Where a bouts did you get the pill from? If you didn't purchase it from an authorized seller, you could most definitely have a counterfeit. The only other thing I can think of, is that it may just be an old version that is no longer on the market. I believe Actavis pharmaceuticals now owns Watson pharmaceuticals so here is a link to the contact page of Actavis Pharma's website if you'd like to ask them about the pill you have: actavi... ...

is the yellow pill watson 853 as strong as the blue watson 540 ## The tablet with the WATSON 853 marking contains 325mgs of Acetaminophen and 10mgs of Hydrocodone. The tablet with the WATSON 540 contains 500mgs of Acetaminophen and 10mgs of Hydrocodone.

What's stronger, u17 or watson 853? ## Hello, Kiss! How are you? I'm happy to help clear this up for you. The tablet with the U17 marking is manufactured by Aurolife Pharma and they list it as containing 10mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. The tablet with the WATSON 853 marking is manufactured by Watson Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. Oxycodone is slightly stronger than Hydrocodone, so the one with the U17 marking is the stronger analgesic.

Problems can arise, however, because they are only required to measure against the name brand, not against each other, therefore, when you switch from one generic to another, you may find that one doesn't work as well, because you may not be getting as much of the medication as you were in the prior one. In some cases, they may even be stronger, which could cause problems for some ... ...

are the yellow tabs stronger than the blue tabs?? ## The oval, blue tablet marked Watson 540 contains 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 500mgs of Acetaminophen. The yellow, oval marked Watson 853 contains 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen.
