Amneal Pharmaceuticals Hydrocodone 10-325

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 po...

drug expirations

I would like to know if Hydroco/apap 10-500mg tablets are still good after a year and for how long they are good. ## Medications have an expiration (usually of 1 year) because by law it must have one. If you had these hydrocodone/apap pills in a dark, cool place such as a kitchen cabinet, bedroom drawer, etc. chances are still fine. Most pills are actually good for two years from the fill date as long as they are cared for properly. If you had them in the medicine chest in the bathroom, (a bad place for medication) then they may have lost some or all of their potency. When a medication like this one becomes older, it is not really dangerous to take it, rather it might have lost some of it narcotic and/or acetaminophen properties. DO NOT USE THIS RULE FOR EVERY MEDICATION ESPECIALLY FOR ...

Why are prescription prices going up so much?

In Dec. 2015I got 120 Hydrocodone/10/325Acet. and 90 Tamazapam 30mg. I paid around $55. Today I only got the Hydrocodone and it was $81.00. I live in a small town and get my prescriptions filled for years at Brookshires grocery. What is happening? The clerk who has been there years didn't seem to know. I will have to ask my Dr. What a good replacement will be in over the counter meds. ## Patricia, all prescriptions are going up and so is everything else. It is a combination of things that are making the prices go up. With more people on Medicaid and receiving free prescriptions, someone has to pay for that, the cost of making the meds, the salary and insurance for the employees, pharmaceutical heads, rent, utilities, etc for the bulidings where the meds are made, etc. You might want...

Urine Test Hydrocodone

I took 2 7.5mg hydros monday at 11pm and had a urine test wednesday morning. I drank lots of liquids the day before and 3 hrs before the test. I peed a whole lot of times. Will I pass or fail the test? I weigh 200 lbs, 5ft 10" tall. I also have taken a urine cup measure test the month before and passed it 8 hrs after taking 2 hydros. ## i also wanna add that the drug test was taken ay 1130 am wed morning. ## I really can't say how the liquids and such would affect it, because there are many variables from person to person that also play a role in the detection time. However, I can tell you that the average time that Hydrocodone is detectable for most people is approximately 6 days, after last dosing. Learn more Hydrocodone details here. When do you get the results back? ## I am ...

hydrocodone ip 115

My pharmacy just switched to the Avkare brand of Norco 7.5. The imprint on it is IP 115. I feel like these do not work at all for me. I would like to know if anyone else that are on these or ever have been on them can let me know how it works/worked for them. ## Hello, Maria! How are you? Has there been any change? As permitted by the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, there can be fluctuations in generic medications. They are allowed to differ in the amount of the active ingredients by as much as plus or minus 20% of what's in the name brand, additionally, they do not have to measure against each other, only against the name brand. Thus it is possible that this one is a little lower than the prior one you were taking. However, since the differences are slight, most people adjust within a we...

dot drug testing

I am taking hydrocodone for back pain. I have a prescription for the hydrocodone. Will I test positive on a dot drug screening? What will be the outcome? ## I'm taking hydrocodone for my pain and I tested positive at the dot drug test. Will I lose my CDL? ## How did you make out on your test?... I'm looking into getting my CDL, but i'm on Buprenorphine for pain management and from what i'm reading it's a crap-shoot! Seems like no-one cares if the dr. prescribed it or not, if you test positive you're done, which seems completely unfair to me, if you are under a doctors care and taking meds as prescribed? It's slanted towards alcohol which leaves your system pretty quickly compared to medications, that i want to add when taken like prescribed are keeping people...

Watson hydrocodone pills - Which pharmacy carries them?

I live in northern ky and walgreens quit carrying watson brand and their new brand makes my whole body hurt. I want to find what pharmacies carry watson? ## I am also looking for the Watson 10/325. All the Walgreens & every other pharmacy around here are out. They said they use a different distributor. If they order them they still can't guarantee that they will get the Watson brand since it all comes from the same warehouse or company. I can't take the substitute brand that everyone is using, it make me so sick & my body just aches from them. I live in Phx,Az. If you know a place that carries Watson Brand please let me know. I can't believe that an entire city of this size can be completely out. ## Yes Watsons are good usually small family pharmacies still carry the...

Hydrocodone Acetaminophen (Norco) 10 325 Mg

I'm recovering from my third back surgery. I can take hydrocodone/acetaminophen 10-325 mg tab with no stomach problems. However, when I take hydrocodone/acetaminophen 7.5-325mg tab Mallinc generic, I have severe stomach pains. The pharmacist says there is no difference except the 10 vs the 7.5. It is NOT in my mind, it's in my stomach & it really hurts. Can you clear this up for me? I will be very grateful for your attention. Thank you. ## Who manufactures the 10/325 tablet that you've taken? There can be differences in the inactive ingredients from one manufacturer to another and that can cause problems for some people that are sensitive. So, say for example that the 10/325 was manufactured by Watson Pharmaceuticals, the inactive ingredients could be completely differen...

Hydrocodone 10/325 white G037 Tris Pharma

Anyone think this is just as effective as Vicodin and Watson etc? Thanks :) ## Not even close. My pain seems the same. I've taken two at a time and it's had no effect at all. ## Yes, I have really suffered in pain this month on tris pharma and will never try them again. My chiropractor is making a lot of money this month LOL more than his usual amount. I told my pharmacist and he said he will not order them next month. I actually have a science degree, and I looked up the background of Watson which is now owned by Teva pharmaceuticals (originally out of Israel) they seem top-notch! And they produce Watson.

can i take hydrocodone with viibryd

I started the 40 mg does of Viibryd about 3 weeks ago; I take it at night with supper. I have been prescribed Hydrocodone/acetam 10-325 mg for knee pain. I take the Hydrocodone as needed for pain, and I try to take it in the daytime away from the time I typically take the Viibryd. Question can I take the two together or should I keep taking them separately as I am doing. ## I didn't find any contraindications listed, so either way is likely fine, unless your doctor, or pharmacist instructs otherwise. However, taking them at the same time, or close together, may result in your experiencing more side effects than usual, which the FDA lists as possibly including nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, sedation, dry mouth, headache, and mood changes.

manufacturers hydrocodone acetaminophen 10 325

I was taking the Mallinckrodt hydrocodone-acetaminaphen 10-325. They were doing the job. My pharmacy ran out and was using Caraco hydrocodone-acetaminaphen 10-325. They were next to worthless for relief. What's the deal do you think? ## Hi Perry, Usually when you switch to another manufacturer's version of the same drug, the primary differences can be found in the list of "inactive" ingredients (which I personally don't believe are actually "inactive" as they say). To my understanding the various binders/fillers may account for how well you metabolize/absorb each active ingredient. Mallinckrodt's M367 (10/325) tablets reportedly contain the following set of inactive ingredients: crospovidone + magnesium stearate + microcrystalline cellulose + povidone + c...

Hydrocodone yellow Norco 10 325 availability

I have a prescription for the yellow norco 10 325. I've taken these for years and now I can't get them. The white ones does not help. I have Arthritis very bad and I really need to know who still carries them in the Mansfield, Arlington, Texas area. I'm 70 and these are the only ones that helps without me having to sleep my life away on the stronger pain meds that I have taken. I'm 70 so I'll probably be sleeping soon enough. SO in the mean time I would like to have my yellow norco 10 325 back. ## Hello, Della! How are you? The white ones with the NORCO 539 marking on them are the same as the yellow, it's just that the manufacturer has removed the dye from them. The yellow are no longer being made. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit...

how long does it take for 4 hydrocodone to get out of your system

I took 4 hydrocodone at once, 3 days ago. How long does it take to get out of your system? ## I'm sorry, but anyone who is concerned about how fast a narcotic will be out of their system probably shouldn't have taken it in the first place. ## No one correct answer. It depends on your body size, physiology, the type of testing I'm assuming is being done. You should be safe after 80 hours. Maybe a little sooner. ## Hair tests can take longer... MUCH longer. ## 1 10mg hydro codone taken in a year. I hurt my back on the road so I took it at home on Sunday and don't be back to work to tuesday. Will a urine test show up anything.
