change in hydrocodone 7 5 per government and price is more just wondering what this about
Why cost increase if they are adding less ingredients and what will they look like, did not pick up due to cost increase...pharmasist said government increased prices Jan 1 has anyone else run into this???? ## Hello, Cici! How are you? No, the government doesn't set the price. It's just my opinion, but my best guess is that your pharmacist was just making up an excuse for the price increase. What really happened is that due to mandatory manufacturing limits, a shortage almost always occurs toward the end of the year and usually is rectified about mid-January of the new year. That coupled with the fact that any with the higher amount of Acetaminophen in them have been discontinued just made the problem even worse and resulted in a price increase. If you can't afford the medic... ...

watson hydrocodone 10 650
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... ...

hydrocodone apap 5 500 tab wats
i get hydroco/apap 10-500 they used to be pink and now they are giving me white ones that seem to be weaker and i am just want to know are they giving me the right meds or are the giving me a weaker brand I think they are giving me 5's instead of 10's the writing on the pill looks like watson 540 thank you ## The tablets with the WATSON 540 marking contain 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 500mgs of Acetaminophen, so they did provide you with the correct dosage. However, Watson recently changed them to remove the dye, which is why they are now white and there have actually been many posts from people saying that they no longer seem to be as effective. Learn more Vicodin details here. Another note I'd like to added is that as of 2013, the FDA has made a request that all manufacturers ... ...

Correct daily dosage of Hydrocodone-Acetaminophen 7.5-3.25
What is the correct daily dosage for severe arthritis? The E/R physician initially prescribed one or two tablets every 4 to six hours. My regular physician has changed the dosage to one tablet every four hours, but she did not specify the maximum number of tablets that could be taken in a 24 hour period. I really would appreciate having your guidance on this matter, as neither physician is 'reachable' at present. ## Hello, Bud! How are you doing? Sorry about the arthritis pain. And yes, your doctor did specify. One tablet every 4 hours means exactly that, she doesn't want you to take multiples and you should follow her prescribing instructions. The Acetaminophen in this risks liver damage or failure if taken in high amounts for a long period of time, thus it isn't safe t... ...

Does hydrocodone 10 acetaminophen 325 mg tab have sulfa or sulfates in it?
The Dr. has currently changed my pain medication to Hydroco/Acetamin 10-325MG TAB MALLK C which is a generic for NORCO 10-325 TAB. I am very allergic to Sulfa & Sulfate drugs does this have any type of Sulfa or Sulfates in it? The Sufa/Sulfate drugs cause me to get a bladder and kidney infection to the point I have to be hospitalized. ## Hello, Linda! How are you? What specific sulfa drug did you have an allergic reaction? Is your doctor and pharmacy aware of it, so they can check for any problems for you? ...

Watson Lortab Formula Change
Does anyone know what Watson did or why they changed their formula for Lortab 10/500? It used to be blue and when I picked up my refill today they are now white. I still have a few days of my blue left but I swapped a few so I can try the white. I'm waiting for it to start working and I took it over 2 hours ago. My rx is 1-2 every 3 hours not to exceed 7 in a day. (my pm dr wants me on a stronger med but anything above hydrocodone makes me euphoric and I can't function) The blue color lortab starts to work within 15 mins. I took my first white color lortab 2 hours ago, waited an hour and took the 2nd and nothing. I will wait 30 mins longer and switch back to the blue until I run out. This sucks. I'm a full time law student, disabled, single mom and can't use my dominate ... ...

What should I so?
Hello I'm currently taking Hydrocodone APAP 10/500mg! I was prescribed 60tabs but after taking at least 10 of them I have not be releaved of pain nor does this medicine have an affect on me... What should I do? ## I meant relieved of pain And what should I do? ## Did you take 10 at once or separately? Because you should be informed that taking a lot at once can be very dangerous due to the Acetaminophen in this. It is toxic if taken in amounts exceeding 4,000mgs a day and 10 of these tablets would have been 5,000mgs. As to what you should do, the 10mg of Hydrocodone, a narcotic pain reliever, is the strongest that this is available in, so if it is not helping your pain, then you need to contact your doctor and discuss the issue with them. Have you called them, yet? ## my dr change... ...

Finding A Doctor Who Will Prescribe Pain Medication
I had been on hydrocodone for approximately 13 years until I had to change doctors. My new doctor didn't believe in pain medication. I have been off hydrocodone for nearly 3 years and my pain is getting really bad again. One doctor prescribed Tramadol but now that is a narcotic and the doctor will not prescribe it anymore. I suffer from fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, scoliosis, myofacial pain and I can't believe none of my doctors will prescribe me something for pain. The pain is constant and I frequently have headaches and sleep problems every night. I seriously need something for the pain--ibuprofen doesn't due a damn thing. I live in Upstate NY and would love assistance with this. ## Go back to your former doctor. Doctors now are not willing to continue to prescrib meds th... ...

White Round Pill M On One Side 0352 Other
Mallinckrodt hydrocodone/apap pills several years ago changed. This sounds like a similar thing to what used to be the caplet (large) shaped pills; M 0367 is now the M367 10/325mg tablet. I believe that they all changed to the same size and shape, dropping initial '0'. Some codes went out of use, most changed inbthe way described, but this tablet, if one og those, is unlikely to be of use, those things having changed well over 15 years ago. Advice; email Covidien. When in doubt... I did the same with Aspen re: Pax diazepam and Purata oxazepam, recently changed, and received courteous reply reassuring me within 48 hours. Write! ## The marking on the pill in question is often misinterpreted, since it can be hard to read on the small tablet, but it is actually M 0552 and the tablet... ...

Generic Watson 853
Did they change this medication from yellow to white? The pharmacy says yes but they don't seem to work the same as the yellow. Watson 853 generic hydrocodone and are causing strange stomach ache. I think I should report this to watson. Just wondering if any one else has had this experience with the change ## Yes, they have been removing the dye from many of their tablets, due to some people being allergic or sensitive to them. Learn more Vicodin details here. There have been several other people that complained that they don't seem to be the same, so yes, I think you should report the issue. Is there anything else I can help with? ## They changed mine from peach to white and it's not working the same. I still have pain, my brain feels stupid, and it's making me really t... ...

Medical Insurance
Since I am on Medical only I had to change Primary Doctor 3 times because they just don't prescribe Norco for me even I am on this Drug over 4 months now and this is the kind I am able to tolerate.I live in Santa Monica is any Stigma about this drug or what I have no medication I called my Insurrance 3 times what can I do? ## Norco contains the active ingredients Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone and the latter is a narcotic opiate, so it can be habit forming and addictive. Therefore, many doctors are reluctant to prescribe it for long-term use and, in addition, doctor hopping to try to get someone to prescribe it may give the impression that you are a drug seeker and make them even more reluctant to do so. Why did you call your insurance? ...

How Long Does Oxycodone Work
I am being changed from 50mch every 48 hrs and 40 mg of hydrocodone a day to oxycodone and the doc only gave me 15 mg three times a day ir release and i am hurting bad. i have a feeling this is not even close to what i am use to. what should i do or say to my doc. i am working with the va military docs which are very strict. ## So you were on a Fentanyl patch that you changed every 48 hours and the Hydrocodone and they've now cut you down to 15mgs of Oxycodone 3 times a day? There's really no way this is going to work, you're going from a time release patch of the most potent narcotic available, down to just 45mgs a day of Oxycodone and that's not even taking the additional Hydrocodone into account. Did they say why they made the switch? Learn more Oxycodone details here... ...

hycrodcodone/ viccodine
is there a difference in the quality of brand name(hydrocodone/ vicodin )vs- lortab as being better than the next one. : Watson -vs- generic. I used to be prescribed Watson and found them to be better, stronger and more effective then the generic. Why did they change the name from Hydrocodone/ aka: vicodin, to lortab? why change the color and shapes of the medicine. it seems each month I am script a different color . Can doctors or pharmacy's give you PHONEY medication to help you withdraw. Can you be denied scripts COLD TURKEY on these addictive meds when in reality your pain level dictates a potential LIFE of pain, consequently a life of medication to curtain the pain ## Hi, Frenchy!

White Watson 540 10 Mg
Found.. White pill imprint Watson 540.. 10 Mg...? Usually they are blue:10mg/500 hydrocodone/acephatamine Different color same imprint? Same thing or not? Usually they have different imprints or why change color..? ## It's interesting you mentioned that because "most" of the images I found have been oval blue pills. I did however come across a legitimate photo of the one you're describing (elliptical, white, imprinted with WATSON 540) at: NOTE: the dosage of the white pill is confirmed to be the same as the blue pill (500mgs of Acetaminophen + 10mgs of Hydrocodone). Manufacturer: Watson Laboratories, Inc. Although the way a pill looks is entirely up to the whit and whim of the company making it, it would definite... ...

Norco and vicodin
is Norco 10—325 mg stronger than vicodin 7.5-300 mg? My doctor changed my prescription to the Vicodin 7.5-300mg without telling me. Is he trying to get me off the Norco or what? I need my pain pills for my body aches, I have bone cancer on my spine, leg, and hip. ## Hi Sessy, Sorry to hear about your situation. My guess on the stronger medication would probably be the Norco 10/325. I tend to believe the 2.5mg difference in Hydrocodone can provide more pain relief than the 25mg difference in Acetaminophen; but that's just me and I'm not a regular user of the stuff. What are you thoughts on the Vicodin 7.5/300 after taking it? To be honest, I actually didn't know that they still made brand name Vicodin. It's been a while since anyone has mentioned it on here too, so ... ...

Butrans patch
I read the reviews and I question if they were written by the manufacturer. I was on Butrans. Started on 10 mg and was eventually switched to 20 mg. When I was switched to 20, at least noticed it did something. I was miserable. I had been on hydrocodone and Opana and I was switched to Butrans by pain management dr. I kept begging to be switched back to anything I had been on because Butrans just didn't cut into the pain. I was not given anything for breakthrough pain (I have switched doctors since). Anyway, it was very mild and had serious side effect of depression and I believe some weight gain. Would not recommend it to anyone in chronic severe pain. Had same problem as others in that it does not last for 7 days. I changed doctors and was put on combo of Oxycontin, Nucynta and Tra... ...

Watson 540 Light Blue Oval Pill
I have severe chronic spine and back pain. I asked for Norco 10/325. ( lower Tylenol) I recieved Watson 540 light blue oval pill with score on the other side. 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. Learn more Vicodin details here. Who did you ask to give you the lower amount, did you ask your doctor, or the pharmacy? If it was the pharmacy, they can't change the prescription, they can only provide you with what your doctor has prescribed. ...
