Dano Says:


I have been taking hydrocodone 10-325 (made by Watson) for about a year. I picked up my prescription yesterday and instead of the normal yellow pill, I received a white oblong pill imprinted with m367 on it. I took 2 for breakthrough pain and had no relief what-so-ever. I called the pharmacy and was told that they will no longer be able to get the med from Watson. Does anyone know what has happened? I have chronic pain, and these white ones from Amneal Pharmaceuticals is not going to cut it. Has anyone else experienced this?

Hello, Dano! How are you?

There's no way to know which manufacturer's product your pharmacy will carry at any given time.

You might be better served to talk to your doctor about trying a different medication.

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 have seen 3 podiatrist and had 4 cortisone shots. I have been prescribed 3 different anti-inflamatories with no relief. I have been diagnosed with plantar fasciosis which is simply chronic plantar fasciitis. My podiatrist told me that my fascia is so inflamed and swolen that I need to have it removed. Then I will be crippled, not that I don't feel that way anyway. I don't enjoy taking narcotics for he pain but I cannot even walk 100 feet without needing to sit down. Anyway I got off on a tangent. When i talked to the pharmacist, she told me that they are getting calls weekly if not daily about the white hydrocodone not working for them either. I have also seen other threads about the blue loratabs 10/500 now being white as well. People taking these are having the same complaints about having no pain relief. Guess I need to contact the manufacturer.

Hi, I just picked up my new generic Norco also and it is the Ameal brand. I have noticed they don't work as well either. I too am tired of the stigma with pain meds. I almost feel like a criminal when I get my Rx filled. But, when I have to work another 5 yrs I do what it takes to get through the day. Have a good one.

I have been on Hydrocodone for RA and connective tissue disease for years. After the rescheduling in Oct 2014, I have tried 3 different pharmacies to get my script filled ( I go to a board certified anesthesiologist specializing in Pain Management) ever since the rescheduling, many of his patients ( including me) are being told by local pharmacies that they are "out" of this drug & no idea when they will get a shipment, all said it was on "back order" Does anyone know why this is happening? I find it disturbing that people with legit illnesss that are law abiding citizens and subject to drug panels to make sure we are not criminals are being denied pain relief from diseases that we did not ask to have! Any information will be appreciated

My wife is suffering horrible pain because our local pharmace gave her Amneal Hydrocodone 10/325 for the first time this week. It's like she is taking nothing. Amneal needs to get their act together. I am calling the pharmacy to make sure she never gets these again!

Good luck I have same problem. It's about the mighty dollar. I was on the 10/325 since 2008. Then they game me watson which are worthless. now I'm forced to try the Amnea brand. They are changing to the weaker white ones due to they are cheaper for the pharmacies to purchase. they do not care what we need. Again it's about the mighty dollar and I think we are stuck. I have called well over 50 pharmacies but to no avail. Wish u luck. we are all gonna need it.

I have the same script and my normal pharmacy carries the m367 on them. They dont help me either. I had to call around and ask the pharmacist what kind they had, finally i found a pharmacy that carried the good ones. I have came to the conclusion that the yellow ones with v on them manufactured by qual are the best.

I just got the smaller Watson's from Walgreens. The ones I ususally get from Publix are not Watson anymore guess the unknown brand is cheaper=more profit and less effective.

I went to the doctor yesterday for a very painful shoulder condition. He prescribed me hydrocodone 5/325. When I got home I took one, and felt no relief, I felt nothing at all except for my horrible shoulder pain. I took one more, and I felt a very slight relief from the pain but that was it. I looked at these pills and saw IP 109 and found out they are the Amneal brand. I am going to contact the company to let them know this particular generic barely works. I wish I had known about this beforehand as my shoulder pain is quite severe.

Yep.this is exactly what is happening to me and my mother. Something is not right. My pharmacist said many people have complained of this. Scary when you are hurting.

Yes my pharmacy has replaced my Watson norco script with white pills from Amneal. The difference is horrible! The Amneal is absolutely useless. I don't know why but they do nothing for my pain. I'm sure the pharmacies are doing this to make more money, but I for one want my Watson brand script back. This company should be investigated.

A patient is taking Norco 10/325 (manufactured by Amneal) and is not feeling better. She is 93 and has multiple medical issues. Her generic pill is oval, white, and is stamped IP 110. Have others experienced the same effect from this drug not relieving pain?

I have noticed a difference too. I picked up my m367 refill and since then, after a day or two, I started not feeling well. A couple of weeks have passed and I'm extremely sick and in pain. I was thinking maybe the variation of 20% the FDA allows in active ingredients is messing me up. With all the new laws and talk, it would not surprise me that this manufacturer is purposely cutting back, to aid in getting people off of the medication. It's hurtful if it's true.
