white lortab 10 watson 540
Two weeks after I started taking the new white watson 10 mg lortab I began to develop blisters on the back of my hands and wrist as well as noticing that they are not near as strong. I used to take 1/2 blue pill in the morning for years but now I need two whole white ones to be able to move around. Sucks!!! I also developed white bumps on my ankles and swelling in my left foot but not painful or any itching. anyone else? ## Hi, Jo! Sorry about the problems you're having… And yes, there are plenty of other people that have posted about experiencing odd side effects from them and stating that they don't seem to be as effective. Those blisters are concerning, it could be an allergic reaction to something they've used in these ones. Have you consulted your doctor? You real... ...

Can we take something else to get back the 175mg of Tylenol in some way to get back the pain reliever? (Blue watson vs. white watson) if they took OUT the dye and they took OUT 175mg of the Tylenol then why is the pi;; the same size? What did they replace it with they could be causing my issues? blisters, white bumps and swelling ## Hi, Jo! Sorry about the problems that you're having.

What did they replace it with they could be causing my issues? blisters, white bumps and swelling ## Hi jo, Sorry to hear about those strange side effects you've been experiencing recently. It sounds to me like there's something drug manufacturers are not telling us. Surely it'll come out of the wood work over the next few years when the FDA decides to investigate why so many patients aren't getting any relief from these new meds. A lot of the time, certain side effects can also be associated with all the binders and fillers they put in each... ...

Lortab Watson Blue vs Lortab M363
My friend and I are both prescribed Lortab APAP10/500's. I get the Watson 540 blue pills and he gets the M363 white pills. I have taken the white ones before, but for some reason, it did not help me as much as the Watsons. I don't understand this. Besides the manufacturer, is there any real difference between the two different kinds of pills? ## Besides the difference in manufacturers, there may be a significant difference in the inactive ingredients in each pill. Inactive ingredients found in M363 are: crospovidone magnesium stearate microcrystalline cellulose povidone corn starch silicon dioxide stearic acid Each Watson 540 tablet contains the following inactive ingredients: croscarmellose sodium crospovidone magnesium stearate microcrystalline cellulose povidone starch steari... ...

watson540
blue oval shaped watson 540 on one side line through middle on other ## Watson 540 is 500 mg Acetaminophen w/ 10 mg Hydrocodone ## That is correct, thank you CJ! This is a generic for Vicodin, Lortab or Norco and I have some new details to add for anyone else seeking information on this tablet. The first is that due to the problems some people were having with the dyes in them, Watson is now changing some of their tablets to remove the dyes, thus as of April 2013, this one is now appearing on the market as a white tablet, but with the same marking and dosage. And the next snippet of information that needs to be added is that by request of the FDA, all of these combination prescription medications are being changed to contain no more than 325mgs of Acetaminophen, per dose. This request w... ...

Watson 540 Blue Oval Pill
I found 2 blue oval shaped watson 540 pills in my sons room several months ago. What are they used for? ## this is a Lortab 10/500, my mom took these while battleing cancer, in the early stages, its for moderate to severe pain, they are addicting and you become very tollerant to the effect quickly, they have ahold of you before you know it and the withdrawal is more than the pain relief or the use of this for the buzz. hope this helps, and I hope you havent found any since. ## Shirley is correct, this pill is Acetaminophen 500 mg and Hydrocodone 10 mg. Do you have any more questions or information to add? Please post back if you do. ## I love taking these pills cause they get me really f***ed up. ## Yup hydrocodone 10 mg acetametaphen 500 mg.

Blue Watson s40
oblong ## I have a light oval blue pill with numbers S40 on it. What kind of pill is it? ## The tablet with the WATSON 540 marking on it contains 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 500mgs of Acetaminophen, it is a generic for Lortab, Vicodin or Norco. Learn more Vicodin details here. This is a narcotic analgesic and, as such, it does have the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Additionally, a recent request from the FDA has manufacturers lowering the amount of Acetaminophen in these products to a maximum of 325mgs per dose, due to the risk of organ damage associated with long-term use and the risk of overdose toxicity. Some companies have already begun to implement the change and the rest are expected to hav... ...

Lortab
I can't remember which one of my meds is the Lortab and which is the Hydrocodone. One is an oval blue pill that says Watson 540 and the other is white and says M363. Can anyone help me? ## Hi Kim. The blue pill (Watson 540) is lortab, and the white one with M363 is 10mg of hydrocodone. Both pills are essentially the same. They both contain 10mg of generic hydrocodone and 500mg of acetaminaphin (tylenol). I hope this helps you! ## The M363 is 10mg hydrocodone with 500 mg acetaminaphine. It is manufactured by the company Mallinckrodt. I was getting this at Wal-Mart pharmacy. Maybe its just pscychological but it seemed to me the Watson generic worked much better. Thats the blue oval Watson 540 you mentioned . Its also 10 mg hydrocodone & 500 mg acetaminaphine. I changed pharmacies ... ...

Pink Qualitest 10/500 Lortab vs. Watson 540 Lortab
I was getting the blue Watson Lortab 10/500 till they changed to the white ones, which do not help the pain at all. They did do something to the formula, it's not in my head. Today I found a pharmacy that has got the pink 10/500 made by Qualitist Pharm. which they took of the market back in Jan. Now they are back with 3600 on one side and a V on the other. Approx. the same price and MUCH MUCH better.THANKS QUALITIST. ## I am glad you found a brand that work for you, again. And I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there is something you should be made aware of, because it will have an affect on you in the near future… By request of the FDA, all of these combination prescription medications are being changed to contain no more than 325mgs of Acetaminophen per dos... ...

oblong light blue pill watson 450
Lortab pain medication ## What is this pill? ## The imprint on this is actually WATSON 540 and it contains 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 500mgs of Acetaminophen, the active ingredients in Vicodin. It is a narcotic analgesic, so it does have the potential to be habit forming and it may cause side effects, such a nausea, dizziness, constipation and drowsiness. Learn more Vicodin details here. Additionally, at some point, if they retain this imprint, the amount of Acetaminophen will be lowered to 325mgs, due to a recent request made by the FDA, since Acetaminophen can lead to liver failure if taken in high amounts for a long period of time and overdoses of it can be toxic. Some companies have already begun to implement the change and all are expected to have them completely by January of 2014. ... ...
