Does anyone know why Watson generic 10/500mg Lortab is no longer available? I am a chronic pain sufferer and have been on this medication for many years. Now my Pharmacy has changed to a different generic and they do not relieve pain. My Dr. told me to change Pharmacies in order to get the Watson Lortab but other Pharmacies don't carry them either. They have a pink one. ## i live in alabama and my mother in law takes lortab 10. i found the blue ones at walgreens. hope this helps. ## FDA NEWS RELEASE For Immediate Release: January 13, 2011 The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is asking manufacturers of prescription combination products that contain acetaminophen to limit the amount of acetaminophen to no more than 325 milligrams (mg) in each tablet or capsule.

Watson Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Hopefully enough to trigger a change back to the old formula. I also want to mention though, that the phone number for U.S. Customer Relations is different than the one you posted to their "Administrative Headquarters". The number listed on their webpage for Customer Relations is +1 (800) 272-5525. However there's no mention of what office hours they hold on any given day, so if you are able to get th... ...

Watson Bupropion Xl
3 Replies RSS
Feedback about Watson Bupropion XL ## is Watson bupropion XL better than other brands? ## While Watson is generally sought out to be one of the more commonly known brands it doesn't necessarily mean that it is better than some others out there. Certain "inactive" ingredients that may or may not be present in each brand, are actually detrimental to how the drug is metabolized and used by your body. Because everyone is different, your body may agree with one medication over the other, due to how you feel or based on whatever side effects present themselves. When you switch brand names, the drug itself doesn't change, but rather the ingredients or fillers that they put with it. I hope this helps! ## There is really no way to say that one from any manufacturer is better than... ...

My pharmacist said watson changed their name is this true ## From what I've seen mentioned, they've been purchased by another pharmaceutical manufacturer, they didn't actually change their name, so to speak. I've not seen any official confirmations of this, though. Learn more Percocet details here. The tablet in question contains 10mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, which is a generic for Percocet. It is a narcotic pain reliever that has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, constipation and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi Verwon, Actavis has taken over Watson.

Does anyone know? ## 500 mg Acetaminophen, 7.5 mg Hydrocodone ## The dosage as listed by Jason is correct, so thanks go out to him! This is a generic for Lortab or Vicodin, as a narcotic, it does have the potential to be habit forming and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and constipation. Learn more Lortab details here. Another note I'd like to add is that as of the time I'm posting, the FDA has requested that all of these combination prescription medications be changed to only contain a maximum of 325mgs of Acetaminophen, due to the dangers of liver damage/failure that can be associated with long-term use and the toxicity of overdose. Some companies have already begun impl... ...

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... ...

They were green before the change to white ## Hi Liz, How have the white tablets been working for you in comparison to the green ones you were originally taking? Only asking because I've heard a lot of rumors stating that, although the color appears to be the only difference, the white one's tend to be much much weaker. Do you also find this to be true? It may also be important to know that Watson was recently taken over by what is now known as Actavis Pharma. I think it's a mere speculation at this point, but the change in ownership may have resulted in a change in formula as well, to help cut costs. A series of lab tests could probably reveal the true cause behind the differences in strength and overall efficacy of these new white tablets that others are complaining about.... ...

Does anyone know the difference between Kadian 30 mg to Watson 3450. My Kadian was just changed to the Watson pill and I am now in withdrawal. What is the difference? ## Kadian is the Brand name for Morphine Sulfate Extented Release capsules, it is made by Actavis. Watson 3450 is a purple/white capsule and contains 30 mgs Morphine Sulfate Extented Release. The amount of medication in a Brand and a generic may vary. The Brands have exact medication whereas generics may vary. For example, if you have a generic that says 10 mgs, there can be 8 mgs-12 mgs of medication in it. ...

Did waston quit making the green 10/650?this is what my pharmacist told me when I got my last script,gave me a flat white pill that does nothing to relieve my pain. ## HI, Flash! Sorry that you're so miserable, I do understand. There are actually two issues at play here…. The first is that Watson had some issues with customers being sensitive/allergic to the dyes in their products, so they have been changing them to remove the dyes and, while they claim that is the only change that's been made, many people are complaining that they are no longer effective at treating pain. The second issue is that due to concerns over overdose toxicity and the possibility of liver damage from long term use of high amounts, the FDA has requested that all manufacturers lower the amount of Ac... ...

Watson is now actavis norco

My pharmacist that I have known for years due to chronic pain from cancer/severe spinal injuries and a totaled knee, told me last week that it is the DEA that has created the change in ALL pain meds. I have been on Watson Norco for 10 years and now I am in severe withdrawal with actavis buying out Watson. It is unbearable and my pharmacist said that people will DIE because of not being forewarned or informed ahead of time. This is all due to the people that use the drugs for getting high. Sniffing, smoking and whatever else they do has ruined it for us real patients. We all know the DEA is like God and they don't even care about us real patients that have medical records, etc. I have been suffering for over a month now and my pain doc is on extended vacation.

If they are brownish, I'd personally be hard pressed to think they were real unless you did in fact obtain them from a licensed pharmacy (which wasn't made clear in your post)?

I have been getting the Hydrocodon-Apap 10-500 Watson and they were blue they have changed to white and they do not help with the pain an makes me feel tired an sick the blue ones did not so whats up with that they say they are the same but they are not and no a lot of other peps say the same thing and yes they are prescribed. ## Hi Molly S, The color of a medication doesn't usually have anything to do with its formulation- as far as active ingredients are concerned. This one could possibly be from a different manufacturer that used a different blend of "inactive" ingredients in which you might be reacting to. Did you get the pills from your usual pharmacy? If you haven't contacted Watson (also known as Actavis) pharmaceuticals about this yet, I've listed their conta... ...

white watson norco by actavis
1 Reply RSS
The new white Norco by Actavis does not work as well as the Yellow Norco by Watson did. With these white ones I also experience the same bad side effect as other generic Norco which is severe migraine headaches. At times I forego taking the pain meds out of fear for the migraine I know that will follow. Actavis obviously changed the formula. Does anyone have an idea what inactive ingredient could cause the migraines? ## Hello, Heidi! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. It's difficult to say, since everyone is different, so trying to figure out what's causing you the problem would be guess work. It might be due to the medication, itself. Headaches are a possible side effect of narcotics, in some people that take them. It is listed in the databases... ...

What has Watson 249 on the pill
2 Replies RSS
It is a pill and it has Watson 249 wrote on it ## This is a white oval pill that says watson 249 ## Since the markings can sometimes be hard to read, I believe the pill in question here may have had the marking WATSON 349, since it meets this description. If so, then it contains 5mgs of Hydrocodone and 500mgs of Acetaminophen, the active ingredients in Vicodin, which is a narcotic pain reliever. Since it is a narcotic, it may be habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and constipation. You can learn more Vicodin details here. And as we are now in 2013, I'd like to add that at some point, the information on the dosage of Acetaminophen in this tablet may no longer be correct. The FDA wants all of these medications changed, so they only contain... ...

Are they still making the round white Watson 10-325? After being on them for yrs for pain for my back all of a sudden the pharmacy changes to another that's A333. Not working nearly as well. But was also told that Watson was bought out. Unfortunately I'm one of those people that can't cant generics, & have the perfect formula for my medication til they just threw a wrench in it. Now I'm lost & not sure where to go or what 2 do. Any advise? ## No, that generic is also not being manufactured. 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. The best suggestion I can make is that you speak to your doctor about trying an alternative medication. Does... ...

Can anyone tell me the name of that blue pill before I take it? Thank you to those who reply ## The tablet with the Watson 540 marking contains 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 500mgs of Acetaminophen, so a little more of the Acetaminophen than what you'd requested.

If it was the pharmacy, they can't change the prescription, they can only provide you with what your doctor has prescribed. ...
