norco white or yellow
Ok, I don't care what people say, pharmacy or manufacturer, the yellow norcos are stronger and work different. It is getting extremely more and more difficult to find the yellow norcos. From what I can tell, the major pharmacy's, ie: WalMart, cvs, Walgreens, target, etc, all have either the plain white ones, it the white ones with reddish/pinkish dots on them, and the smaller mom and pop(good neighborhood pharmacy's) have the yellow. Last month I filled mine at target, got the white oblong norcos (10/325). Today, I filled mine at a small good neighborhood pharmacy in Ontario, California, name available upon request, and I got the yellow Watson Norco. Again, huge difference. I don't think they quit making them, I just think that when buying in bulk as a large pharmacy doe... ...

Still yellow Watson Norcos
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. They said that all the Watson yellows had to be taken off the market. The next month they had Watson again, only they were white. I don't care what color, but today i happen to ask the question into the cyber space and see all these answers, and they are the same as the pharmacy told me give o rtake a rumor. BUT, my friend just said he is getting the yellows at one pharmacy here in San Bernardino, they have had them all along and they just got some last week. I dont know what to think of this. It technically was his friend who got the pills and , well gave him one for a headache. I am suspicious btu don't know who to suspect! h... ...

white norco pill watson 853
I have been on Norco for years . I have used it in conjunction with Roxicodode with great sucess. Now that I have switched to the white version I am having serious problems controling my pain. I don't believe they just removed the dye. This white Norco has become a placebo falling far short of the results I once had. Now I am in scramble mode to find a replacement for the old yellow Norco. Walgreens has told me they have had several calls with other pain patients suffering from the new White Norco. Obviously Watson drug has altered the Norco to increase profits at the patients expense. How surprising. I will update fellow sufferers of the new bad White Norco with an alternative as soon as my Pain Clinic can finda replacement. Larry.T ## PLEASE let me know if u find anything , i have... ...

norco watson
The white new norcos do not work, and I am back spending half my life in bed. Why is is they break in half so easily? The yellow ones couldnt be broken by hand. Who can we call? The DEA? ## Hi allie, It seems like a lot of patients have been experiencing problems with the Norco made by Actavis (formerly known as Watson). Apparently from what I understand, after Watson was bought out, Actavis made some "unnecessary" changes within the inactive ingredients, causing them to not be nearly as effective as their yellow predecessor. If you want to put in a complaint, I would suggest filing a report with the FDA under their MedWatch program, which can be reached at: Maybe if enough people report similar problems they will consider making changes. But ... ...

10/325 quailiest Verses Watson Verses white or yellow (BRAND NAME NORCO)
Hello Hydrophone world: My experience is this. You can not beat Name Brand scored> NORCO 10/325 . However, my experience is Watson is a softer compound, & works faster. Now, the other generic NORCO 10/325 (36 01) scored other side. This is made by QUAILITEST: many people say they suck, because in fact, it is a harder compound to digest/desolve, therefore not getting a good feeling,but the slight slower release makes Quailiest (NORCO) actually kill the pain more so than Watson (GENERIC) 10/325. The watson have the edge, however the Qualitiest last longer & are so dang close, only a Dog may know the difference. Personally me, & all the 4 companies that make generic NORCO can stick it. Your/My Dr. is going to request the yellow dye, I do get allergic reactions minor,but eno... ...

PRICE @ IS IT white norco pill watson 853
THE 853 NORCO DOES NOT HELP MY PAIN AS WELL AS THE YELLOW TINTED ONES. PLUS THEY UPED THE PRICE DOUBLE. ## I used CVS for my prescriptions until last month, when I tried Walgreens to fill my script for Norco 10/325. When I saw they were white instead of yellow I thought I was given the 5/500 strength in error, since I knew those are white. I called Walgreens and was assured these Watson 853's were the exact same ingredients as the Norco 10/325. After taking my usual dosage, I was shocked to feel almost no relief....maybe 10% relief. After this happened, i went on the internet and read about others who had the same bad experience. Today when I got my new script I went back to Walgreens and told the pharmacy I wanted the other generic, NOT the Watson 853. They said that's the only... ...

The white watson norcos don't work at all!
I have been on pain management for 10 years due to severe car wreck. I have taken all of the generic brands in the past and to me the yellow watsons r the best followed by qualitest with the mallins not worth taking. So last month i go to docs get scripts and go to walgreens to get my norcs, i get my pills and notice that they were white, So i take a couple and nothing, i take two more,nothing! So im stuck with them all month and everytime i took them nothing, Watson is now Activis or whatever, All i know is that they r not watson norcos, they might have the name and numbers but they r not the real deal. So this month i went to a different pharmacy that sells the qualitest yellow norcs with the v on them. They r waay better than the white watson/activis norcs. So from now on, i will get... ...

NORCO color change to white Watson/Activus
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... ...

Watson 853 White Pill
I have always taken the Watson 853 yellow pill, for some reason i was just dive Watson 853 white pills. What is going on ? Why the color difference ?? ## It seems from other posts made on here recently that Watson is just removing the dyes from some of their products. There have been some complaints from people that have had sensitivity or allergic reactions to them, so they have been doing away with them. Learn more Norco details here. However, as long as the imprint is the same and your pharmacy has listed it as being the same medication and the same dosage, then you shouldn't have any reason to worry. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Not the same for sure! ## I have experienced poor results with the white pills. If they are different and labelled the same then walgre... ...

White Watson 10mg 325 #853
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... ...

Why Did They Change My Yellow Norco To White Norcos Dont Work The Same
the new white norcos 10-325T do not work.what did they change in them and why.the yellow ones wrked fine and now they aren't making them anymore.are they testing to see if our pain is real? ## From what I could gather, you're certainly not alone in this matter. There's actually a fairly large discussion thread here (linked below) talking about this very problem with the "weaker" white version replacing the "stronger" yellow tablets. Perhaps some of the responses there can at least offer a bit more insight as to why this is happening and how others might be coping with it: Discuss/White-Watson-10mg-325-853-245408.htm I hope this helps! ## I agree. The new white Norcs do not work nearly as good as the yellows. They make me dizzy, itchy, and do not help with the... ...

has watson change the color of 853 norco
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... ...

???????yellow pill
oblong yellow pill line down middle with the numbers 36(line) 01 and on the reverse it looks like a cursive V ## Pill Image This is Acetaminophen 325mgs and Hydrocodone 10mgs, a generic for Noroc, Lortab, Vicodin or etc. ## what pharmacist Kelly's qualitest Norco 10 325 Yellow oblong in SAN DIEGO? ## YELLOW Hydrocodone 10/325 by QUALITEST - Does anyone know which pharmacies in San Diego County carry this brand ? I appreciate your feedback. I have been taking Hydrocodone for many years. Recently I have become convinced that when I get the YELLOW PILLS (e.g., by QUALITEST), I am much, much more comfortable (less anxious). I am convinced the IN-active ingredient in the white pills are missing me up. Watson no longer makes the yellow pills, the only one that I know is Qualitest. I took ... ...

Watson 500 Blue
The Watson White Generic Lortab 10-500 has been changed and they DO NOT work to relieve Pain thanks to our regulaters. I have taken the blue ones for years for chronic pain and I can say Diffinently they Do Not Work ! Go to Norco 10-525 and add childrens tylneol to get 500 mg acetiminifen and you will get the help the ue Watsons use to give. Just stop using the white ones so they will feel the decline in sales! Fact! ## Watson was bought out by Actavis. I checked the website and the yellow Norco is also white. This new company has obviously changed the fillers/binders/diluents. The website does not say what "inactive" ingredients are in these new tablets either so that we can compare. They may even have the same ingredients, but a different manufacturing process using different ... ...

Whats The Difference Between White And Yellow Vicodins 325/10
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... ...

Generic Norco?
Is the Watson 325/10 mg the same as the uo3 pill 325/10 mg. The Watson pill is yellow and the uo3 pill is white. Watson has its name on the pill and uo3 does not. I'm confused. ## Did you mean a marking of ucb? They are just two different manufactures, Watson Pharmaceuticals and UCB Pharma, Inc. This is a generic for Vicodin, Lortab or Norco and once a medication is available as a generic, it's usually manufactured by several different companies, it basically helps to keep prices down by creating market competition. You can learn more Vicodin details here. But from what you've listed in your post, the medication and dosages are the same. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

I have some YELLOW oblong pills from Pakistan. Pill says WATSON 853 and is yellow football shaped. Is suppossed to be Vicodin 10/325. Does not stop pain. Is it safe? I think I've been scammed by Pakistan. ## This tablet does contain 325mgs of Acetaminophen and 10mgs of Hydrocodone, a generic for Norco, Vicodin and its generics, usually contain more Acetaminophen. This is a narcotic pain reliever, these same tablets are available in the US as generics from pharmacies that carry them. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. You can find more information on the medication here: The problem you may be running into, if you have never taken this generic before, is that the FDA does allow generics to differ from their name brand counterparts, in the... ...

What is a white oblong pill imprinted WATSON 325 with a line in center of back
What is a white oblong pill imprinted WATSON 325 with a line in the middle of the back? ## yellow oblong pill with watson 10/325 line on other side ## In regards to the original post, that tablet has been asked about several times and I'm sorry, but at this time I am still unable to find an identification. It may be due to the late time that I am seeing these posts, it could've been something that has been removed from the market in the intervening years and is no longer available. However, I will keep looking and post an update, if I find anything on it. As to the bottom tablet with the WATSON 10/325 marking, I am actually not 100% certain, since I can't find anything in the various databases to confirm it, but these are reported to be an equivalent to Norco from a foreig... ...

best norco brand
hi i get the yellow norco pill with a cusive v and3601 on the back is their 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!
