I refilled my prescription and received some yellow 10/325 vicodin. I normally take my dose and feel so much better, but the ones I just got make me so so sick. I vomit and feel hungover. I am concerned these are a bad batch or something I need them for my pain but am so scared to take these particular ones again. How can I tell if they are fake and/or bad? Please help.

@Concerned patient,

If you're receiving these meds through your doctor from a licensed pharmacy there should be no reason to even question whether or not they're real/fake. Pharmacies don't dispense fake medication, but often times they do dispense ineffective brands/generics that lack quality from cheap manufacturers. I usually don't see too many complaints pertaining to the yellow V 36 01 from Qualitest; and I've also been told on a number of occasions that they are actually thought to be much better than some of the other tablets on the market. But then again it's common knowledge that each person may react differently as well.

If you did get this legitimately however, then one thing I would encourage you to do is report it to the FDA's MedWatch Program, where you can express your concerns/side effects in detail to the FDA.

And just for the record - vomiting, lightheadedness, nausea, dizziness, and drowsiness, are all listed as common side effects of Hydrocodone on nih.gov. So it may also be that your body chemistry just isn't responding to it in the same way it used to. They recommend contacting your doctor if these symptoms are too bothersome or do not go away on their own.

Hope you feel better soon!

What did they look like? Were the V and 3601 upside down to each other ? Or both facing the same way?

I recently refilled a script as well. Supposed to me v 3601 hydrocodone but the tablets were a lot skinnier than usual and the color was an off yellow not a bright yellow. They were hard to break like usual and didn't dissolve very fast but after taking my usual 3 tablets i felt like i had taken xanax. Can anyone tell me whats going on here please??

They're facing the same way. What does that mean?

Hi Concerned Patient. I just read your question. I know your fear exactly. I had the same problem with another painkiller which I was taking for 20 years by a specific manufacturer. I also got 2 batches that made me feel sick. They were "brand", so I switched to the generic by the same manufacturer and they are fine. They are not as strong as the brand, but at least they don't make me feel sick. Don't let anyone think that you are nuts. Stand up for yourself and keep trying other manufacturers until you find one that suits you. Good luck.

Anyone having trouble with painkillers made by "Watson", turned "Activis" a year or two ago? I have been taking meds made by Watson for years which worked great .. Then Activis took over and the pills do not work as well and sometimes side effects. Anyone?

There is a super easy way to spot the bad ones, and it seems like nobody notices it. The spacing between the 0 and the 1 is about three times farther apart on the fakes. The good ones are close together. Good ones are like this : 36 01 fakes ones: 36 0 1. Guarantee you can spot them instantly!

Yup what he said. I got a lot of bad ones, they looked pretty good but as he said fake 36 0 1 instead of 36 01 just got some more (where I had the fake) and can see spacing is closer so I should be good to go!

This happened to me as well. You can tell by several ways, 1, if you bite them. They should be very hard. Rock hard almost. 2, when there broken in half, there is crystal like sparkles in them. 3, they brake in layers. And the most important part. The real ones have a shiny coating on the outside. The fake ones are white on the edges and chalky and soft and creamy when chewed. Also, you wont feel a thing with the fake ones. I hope this helps you.

The fake v 36 01 tabs I have encountered were not bright yellow. Their color was the orange-like, color very similar to that of a school bus. And, they should have a glossy coating.

Break the pill in half, they will make a snap sound if they are real. If they break in half and don't snap and crumble they are fake. Fake ones going around. They make presses now u can find online. How this is legal is beyond me.

Fake V3601 : look at the spacing between the 36 and the 01.... Between the 01 there is usually an extra space between 01,,,the spacing between the numbers should be close together and fake 3601 usually there is extra space between the 0 and the 1.

I know this is about a year old, but I'm having the same problem with this brand of hydrocodone. I've been taking between 2-4 at a time of 10mg, and I've always received the white ones and never feel sick. I just filled my script of these yellow ones a few days ago, took some, felt sick, vomited at least once everyday in the past three days. Reduced my normal prescribed dose, still feeling pretty nauseous. I know they aren't fake. It's pretty strange.

I know what you mean I somewhat hate the yellow ones for the side effects you feel. I sometimes feel like I took crack after I come down or the next day. I always prefer white ones because I don't get that heavy roller coaster side effect. I gave a few yellows to my 2 of my friends, the first passed out on my balcony. Scared the s*** out of me. Luckily he came too and the other couldn't stop throwing up for hours and called in sick from work.. I never got that bad but my tolerance is probably elite but yeah they say oh there's no difference but I can tell there is big difference taking them..

My pharmacy changed suppliers and I feel like my norco v3601 are not the same. Like they don't work as good, and for the past 2 weeks I've had stomach problems. I'm sick to my stomach all the time. Anyone else have this problem?
