substituted for vicodin is hydrocodone acetaminophen 5/500 white oblong shaped tablet imprinted with l544 and has an expiration date of 03/09/2013. Can this still be used safely?

Hello, Zettie! How are you?

White, oblong tablets with L544 on them are not Hydrocodone, nor any type of narcotic. These tablets are manufactured by Perrigo and they list them as containing 650mgs of Acetaminophen in an extended release formulation.

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness and headache.

Regarding expired medications, most tablets don't become dangerous, once they are expired, but they do tend to lose effectiveness, so you should dispose of them.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I have a horrible toothache and found white tablets imprinted with m357 in my bathroom. I'm pretty sure they are 5/500 hydrocodone-apap. Is it safe for me to take them?
