My orginal script was a white oblong pill with imprint m367, however just got refill and the pill is yellow with imprint 170 on it, I can not find this any where. The script is for hydrocodene 10-325, Took them back in the pharmacy and they said it was the same pill just another manfacturer.Thought they should at least change the lable incase I got pulled over. And not sure what I'm taking now because I cant fin it on the internet anyplace. Please someone help Thanks ## M367, white oblong tablet is Hydrocodone 10 mg and Acetaminophen 325 mg. Yellow tablet with 170 imprint is Hydrocodone 7.5 mg and Acetaminophen 325 mg ## Thank- you for your reply so they did give the wrong script. Not sure what to do about that, take them back.

aurobindo hydrocodone
2 Replies RSS
Actually I have been taking them for about 9 months after the Watson (Norco) sold the company and made changes to their medication, they claim all they did was remove the yellow dye! BS the medication sucks, it's useless! On to aurobindo, they have worked for the last months as a good replacement however my latest refill, they are horrible, ineffective with headaches, I am guessing greed stepped in and the company made some changes, because these too are now useless! They will learn an expensive lesson as others will turn away from them as I now will. For some reason the pharm industry has less concern for the patient "customer" than any other, they think they can do as they please. ## @webhead, I agree with what you said about the pharmaceutical industry expressing less con... ...

change in hydrocodone 7 5 per government and price is more just wondering what this about
2 Replies RSS
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... ...

viibryd and hydrocodone
2 Replies RSS
I have been on viibryd for a week and have been having awful headaches. I am wondering if it is safe to take a leftover hydrocone from a dental procedure. ## Hello, Mary! How are you? I'm sorry about the headaches. I didn't find any problems or interactions listed between these medications, but it's always best to double check with your doctor to be sure. Viibryd has been known to cause migraines, in some people that take it, according to the FDA. You may also experience nausea, dry mouth, weight changes, palpitations, decreased libido and night sweats. However, they should taper off, after a few weeks, when your body gets used to the medication. If not, you should speak to your doctor as it may not be the right medication for you. The FDA classifies Hydrocodone/Acetaminophe... ...

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 and fentanyl
1 Reply RSS
I have severe back pain from 2 herniated discs, sciatica, disc degeneration and arthritis. I have been taking hydrocodone for years. Started off with 10/750 but now with the changes, down to 10/350. I also take methocarbamol. I've started going to pain management and the doctor has prescribed fentanyl patches 12.5 mcg, along with the hydrocodone for breakthrough pain. So far I've been on the patches for 15 days. After the first few days, I did get some relief but now I'm back to the same pain I was having before. Since this is just the beginning of my prescription with the patches, do they usually increase the dosage? The few days I felt better, it was so nice because it's been years since I've been free of pain. Thanks in advance for your help. ## Hello, Lana! How a... ...

Is hydrocodone DOT approved
2 Replies RSS
My family doctor subscribed 10mg Hydro's for me for continuing pain from a lumbar x 4 back fushion. He told me that these were DOT exceptable providing they did not cause drowsiness. Now that he can no longer do DOT medicals with the laws being changed the new DOT Doc says I have to stop taking them even when prescribed and not at work! Please, what's the true story on this prescription drug??? Thank you, Robert ## DOT states that you must have proof that you're taking them legally if you come back positive for them on a drug panel. But, a lot may depend on exactly what it is that you do.

hydrocodone or hydrocodine
1 Reply RSS
why did they take it of the market? ## Hello, Ed! How are you? Hydrocodone has not been removed from the market. The only thing pulled from the market were the products that contained higher amounts of Acetaminophen. A change was made to lower that to no more than 325mgs per dose. 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

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.

Anyone think this is just as effective as Vicodin and Watson etc? Thanks :) ## Not even close. My pain seems the same ive taken two at a time a its had no effect at all ## Yes, I have really suffered in pain this month on tris pharma and will never try them again. My chiropractor is making a lot of money this month LOL more than his usual amount. I told my pharmacist and he said he will not order them next month.

hydrocodone acetaminophen 5 325 vs 10 325
4 Replies RSS
My Dr changed me from 10-325 to 5-325 because I broke the pill on half. The 10's were barely working. He said they did not appear in my metabolites. I called him out on this bc he must have lied. I never missed any dosages. I think he was wrong. ## Hello, Georgette! How are you? I'm sorry that you're in pain. If you were only taking half of the prescribed dosage, then the amount might have been lower than it should have been and, in some cases, that's treated the same as it not being detected, at all. 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. Is he still prescribing the lower dose for you? ## Well, I was on hydrocodone 10/325. I have chronic neck... ...

I have a right below the knee amputation due to a land mine that happened in 1968, have never needed pain meds up until 2 to 3 years ago at which time my doc prescribed hydroc/apap 10-650 mg--formerly lortab.Now it has been changed to the same thing only in a 10-325 mg which from what I have been told was due to a change in the law Jan 2014-the 10-650 did a fair job if I oook one every 4 hrs of course the 10-325 do not seem to help very much, have about a 8 out of ten on the pain chart. My wife was given Oxycod/ap 5-325 when she had Cancer surgery, I have taken some of the leftovers and can go 8 to 10 hrs without much pain at all.

hydrocodone acetaminophen 7 5 325 t/ verses 5-325 TB
1 Reply RSS
I recently was on 7.5 325 T and doc just switched me to 5-325-TB. What is the difference between the two? As in what amount of aspirin/Tylenol, does the amount in prescription strength, above mean? Like 7.5 to the 5, & the amount that didn't change 325? I have severe lower back pain, after standing or walking for several hours, as well as after strenuous work around the house, bending stooping, etc., & an MRI showed spinal stenosis. As well as the knee pain, I've had for years! So switching down in meds, as the doc prescribed, may not work. That's why I was wanting to know what the difference in the two meds are?

Correct daily dosage of Hydrocodone-Acetaminophen 7.5-3.25
1 Reply RSS
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... ...

Changes to Inactive Ingredients

Is there any company anywhere still manufacturing the old YELLOW Norco? (10/325 Hydrocodone Acetaminophen - formerly available by prescription from Activis/Watson.) It was suggested that a Canadian Pharmacy might still have this medicine available. It will be a year in August. When the color changed, so did my life. The side effects are horrific. Chronic pain sufferers have been lumped together with abusers. When I asked what, if any of the inactive ingredients had been changed, I was told "that's proprietary" Considering that every seed in a loaf of bread must be identified and labeled?? So, my second question- Is there any way to force the release of this information? I am not interested in litigation - takes forever. Just want to know what has changed! ## Hello, Ann! How ... ...

Got someone with these and she thinks they have been remaking them. Is there a way to check them to see if they are the original formulation? ## Hello, Sarah! How are you? Where did she get them? If they are from a legitimate U.S. pharmacy, then she shouldn't have anything to worry about. The tablets with the M 523 marking are manufactured by Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals and they list them as containing 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. The FDA lists this medication as being 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. However, if they are from some other source, the only thing she could so would be to pay to have them lab tested somewhere. Is there any... ...

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.
