Hello, Rose! How are you?

What are the markings on the tablet in question?

There is a 16mg extended release Hydromorphone tablet that is white, round and has the marking WPI 3630 on it and that is the only generic that I've found in this dosage, so far.

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.

That is what I thought. Last month my pharmacist gave me my Rx of Exalgo half of the pills were the yellowish color with Exh and 16 on the tablet and some said the W with 3630 if I recall. When I asked for the generic again to save $$'s he said they only get the generic in now but they are the same ones I've had for years, yellow with Exh 16... So I don't know if my pharmacist is confused or he actually thinks he's getting the generic in because I know they're not. But he did not want to discuss this with me any further because it's an uncommon medication and only 2 ppl in the pharmacy take it.... So yes I would rather have generic because they do dissolve a bit faster also, because if I'm sick I can throw up 3-5 hours later and find my Exalgo tablets in my vomit unchanged...sounds gross but I have to get then out of vomit because if I was to run out, I'd go into withdrawls... Do not want that. So how do I tell my pharmacist he still is giving me the brand ones without him getting I offended with the I know more than you attitude?? Jw? Thanks
