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... ...

white lortab 10 vs. Blue lortab 10 watson 540
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. However, as to what's causing the new side effects, unfortunately I don't have an answer for you. They've been reported by many people, but Watson states that they've only removed the dye and not changed anything else. Learn more Lortab details here. As to adding Acetaminophen, you should check with your doctor, you may be able to just add a Tylenol tablet, or half of one with it. Does ... ...

White Watson 540 and blue Watson what is the difference?
My prescription was changed from blue Watson 540 to white Watson 540 pills. However, I felt that the strenght was different from the blue colored Watson . Taking one blue Watson would stop the pain but one white Watson did not work. Does anybody knows if the strength is the same? I can't findi the blue Watson anywhere anymore ## What strength does your pharmacy list on the bottle? From what's been posted on here, so far they have just removed the dye from the tablets. There are others where it seems they have done this, as well, due to some people being sensitive or allergic to the dyes. However, the reason I am asking what the pharmacy lists as the strength is due to the fact that the amount of Acetaminophen in these tablets will be changing. The FDA has requested that the amou... ...

aurobindo hydrocodone
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. ...

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... ...

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 ... ...
