Opioids & U.S. Senate

U.S. Senate has succumbed/conspired with health providers to practically eliminate severe or chronic pain med for the elderly. Some 16,800 deaths of young drug mixing punks & the cost of providing these meds; has caused the low level intelligence & greedy health providers to furiously lobby (bribe) the U. S. Senate to order a 40% decrease in severe/chronic meds for the elderly; not for young drug mixing "punks" because they will mix something else. It has been shown that the Senate members have been drunk or half drunk in decisions like this. Proof of the aforesaid? here it is: the Senate ignores 1.6 millions of deaths & or severe mutilations due to alcohol. Senators have never done heavy strenuous work that by the time you are 65/70 years old, everything hurts to a ...

what does the cursive v on pills stand for

found pill with v on one side and 3605 on the other what is it ## Hi Walt, From what I understand, the cursive "V" actually represents Vintage Pharmaceuticals who now holds the name Qualitest. However the pill you have there marked "V 36 05" is identified as a generic Norco tablet containing 325mg of Acetaminophen + 7.5mg of Hydrocodone; used for treating moderate to severe pain. And for verification, this particular pill also carries a National Drug Code of 00603-3891. I hope this helps! ## thanks for the info ## The pill is round and pink with a cursive V and markings of 49/93 on the other side what is it? ## Pink V 49 93 is oxycodone hcl 10 mg an I believe fairly new to the market! ## Also, the V 49 94 gray pill which is 20mg oxycodone I think is new to the market, is...

doctors who will prescribe pain medication between Shreveport and Lafayette, Louisiana

My husband and I are looking for a new pain management doctor, because the one we go to in Lake Charles, LA seems intent on bleeding us for every penny we have and threatening to not make us appointments for the following month if we don't pay the amount that they tell us we need to pay. My husband is disabled, but is still waiting for his SSI to be approved. In 2008, he was driving a log truck with an unloaded trailer and he was hit head on by a pickup truck. Point of impact was shown to my husband by the Trooper that was there, and it was on my husband's side of the road on the white line. He was trying to ditch the truck instead of get hit, but the guy whipped over too fast for my husband to get to the ditch. This was on a 2 lane blacktop road. The front tire and the tank wit...

Generic Norco m367 10/325

It's no good. I have to take three at a time for 1 hour of pain relief. Anybody else have this problem with M367 - 10/325? Has anyone else noticed that meds from certain manufacturers do not work as well for them? ## Recently went to refill my norco script and they gave me M367 10/325 instead of the yellow 10/325. One of the yellow pills would last 4 hours. With the m367 I have to take 3 at a time for 1 hour of pain relief. Let me know if any of you have encountered the same with M367 10/325. Thank you ## I'm sure there are others that have had similar problems, there can be some slight fluctuations from one generic medication to another, so not all of them work well for everyone that tries them. For example, I can take this same tablet and it really hits me very hard, after tak...

Anneal Norco Generic Hydrocodone

I have experienced many generic brands, including Watson and Qualitest. My pharmacy just changed to the Amneal brand 10-325 hydrocodone/APAP. I am just not sure what to think about this. The pills have an IP on them. What have been the experiences of others taking this specific generic brand? ## Because these drugs can affect each individual differently, my opinion is that trial and error through one's own personal experience is the only way to accurately judge the efficacy of a specific tablet. On the other hand, I do get the sense that some brands/generics are manufactured with less quality inactive ingredients than others, potentially making them more prone to cause side effects or placebo-like responses from varying degrees of bioavailability. I haven't taken the Amneal bran...

Watson is now Actavis - Norco

My pharmacist that I have known for years due to chronic pain from cancer/severe spinal injuries and a totaled knee, told me last week that it is the DEA that has created the change in ALL pain meds. I have been on Watson Norco for 10 years and now I am in severe withdrawal with actavis buying out Watson. It is unbearable and my pharmacist said that people will DIE because of not being forewarned or informed ahead of time. This is all due to the people that use the drugs recreationally; and whatever else they do has ruined it for us real patients. We all know the DEA is like God and they don't even care about us real patients that have medical records, etc. I have been suffering for over a month now and my pain doc is on an extended vacation. Thank goodness for my pharmacist at leas...

IP 110 NORCO DOESN'T WORK - ME LIKE WATSON 853, SAME MED.

Many other people are telling me that ip 110 which is another generic form of hydrocodone 10/325, does not work for them nearly as well as watson 853, which is a better generic of the same thing - hydrocodone 10/325. Obviously, pharmacies are buying ip 110 cause they are cheaper. What else is known out there, and in other people's experience, is it the same? I would like to know? ## Hello, Dr. Moki! How are you? I've actually taken both of them, at different times when it was prescribed and found them both to work well for me. Just like any other medication, it can vary from person to person. The additional thing you have to remember is that most people don't post or talk about a medication, unless they've had a problem with it, there is a much larger number of people th...

Norco 5 325

Okay so I am use to taking norco10/325. But now I only have norco 5/325 can I take more because I am used to a higher dose? ## Have you consulted your doctor? You really shouldn't double up, without their approval. You would be getting twice the amount of Acetaminophen as usual and that may cause problems, with certain health conditions and other medications. Why was your dosage changed? ## I don’t know. I go to a RA doc about 225 miles round trip from my home and the nurse always puts my scripts in an envelope and seals it. I didn’t open it until I took it to my pharmacy and when my husband picked them up is when I caught the error! It was a different color, shape and lower mg. I have had severe RA for 40 yrs.

Synthetic urine and adding norco

I am going to a pain management appointment in 2 days. I need to use synthetic urine, but I also need it to show that I am taking my Norco/10 mg hydrocodone. Can I add some powder from a crushed pill to the fake urine? Will that make the synthetic urine positive for Norco? I am hoping so. Please reply asap anyone! Thanks so much! ## I have friend wondering the same thing? Did it work? ## It worked! The stuff I used was called "Quick Fix Synthetic Urine PLUS".. I got it at a local smoke shop for $19.99 + tax. Someone I talked to at the company said just use a small amount of crushed Norco/Vicodin and make sure you shake it well before putting it in the sample test cup. I give my sample unsupervised, but you can use the squeeze top (closed, of course) heat the bottle in the micro ...

pill watson 3203 white

Ha, whoever said Mallinckrodt is better than Qualitest is badly mistaken....The 10mg/325 Norcos by Qualitest are some of the best going....Mallies give people headaches.....I'd give about .50 cents for a 5mg one..... ## The differences people are noticing across one manufacturer to another vary based on so many different factors (i.e. tolerance, age, weight, metabolism, digestive health, mentality, body chemistry, etc) that there is virtually no way to disprove someone's own reasoning / opinion as to why they feel the way they do about one tablet working better or worse than the other. So my thoughts are that whoever said "Mallinckrodt is better than Qualitest" was solely speaking relative to what works for their own body chemistry. I think body chemistry plays a huge ro...

white watson 3203 versus yellow 10mg/3.75mg

Hi I have a serious question to ask. I have been on Norco 10mg/3.25mg for a while now because I have chronic pain in my back. These pills that I take are yellow in color, and they help a great deal. However, I got my meds filled, and this time I got a white pill that reads on one side Watson 3203, and on the other side a straight line down the middle. This pill has the same mg as my yellow Norco do. Here is the question. Why does this pill not help my pain? What ingredient has been took out. of the white watson 10mg/3.25mg pill? I have read were other people are having the same issue as me. Plus this is not the first time I have got this watson 3203 white pill, and each time I do it does not help my pain and others pain! I hope after reading this people at the watson company may read my...

n358 10 white oval pill

CVS filled my script with these. I usually get the yellow Norco. When I asked about it they said the yellow ones were no longer being manufactured. Is this true? The white ones they gave me look similar to other meds i am prescribed and I do not want to accidentally take more than prescribed. Thank you. ## According to the pill ID, it’s the same thing. I would fight for the yellow ones though because they are the strongest, most effective on the market. They are just bulls***ting you about them not being manufactured anymore. Yellows are still around but getting rarer. ## Lupin is no good lupin lost 60 percent net profit,CBS must be bail them out ## From what I've been hearing, post #1 may be right about the yellow version getting harder to come by. However, if you keep search...

what is the difference between m367 and watson 853

I have both pills, m 367 and watson 853, the pharmacy ran out of one so split it with the 853. Anyway I have been taking norco for over 2 years and for some reason neither seem to work for my pain. I am going to talk to my PCP and maybe get a different medication. I went on a few websites and they said one of these norco manufacturers went out of buisness. Thank you for your time ## Hello, Teena! How are you? Both of the tablets you mentioned contain 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, they are generics for Norco. Learn more Norco details here. 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. However, if you've been taking it for that long, there'...

New white Watson 853 10/325 problem - What is going on!?

Hello all, I am a longtime chronic pain sufferer. I have taken opiates for pain for over 10 years. I recently got a prescription filled (from a well known pharmacy chain in the U.S.) and I was given these new Watson 853 white (not yellow) hydro 10/325 pills. I wanted to ask the forum here if any of you have had the same experience with them as I have. I know there are some very smart people with advanced chemistry knowledge here that may have delved deeper into whats going on with these things. They are ineffective for me. I've taken hydrocodone 10/325 for 10+ years and have never ever had a problem with pills being ineffective but that is the case with these pills. I've had about every brand you can think of and never an issue. Ever. I thought nothing of the color change when I...

white oval pill n 358 10

Found this pill that says n358 on one side and 10 on the other. What is it? I don't know if it is a lortab or not. ## An oval white pill imprinted with "n | 358" on one side and "10" on the other is identified as Hydrocodone bitartrate (10 mg) + Acetaminophen (325 mg); a generic of Norco used for moderate to severe pain relief.

norco 10 325 M367 how much does it cost

How Much does Norco 10/325 M367 Cost period. ## Hi Max, The price is probably going to vary based on your location, availability and potentially other unknown factors. However, as of writing this post, my findings are that a typical script for 90 tablets of M367 (10/325) Hydrocodone + Acetaminophencosts costs around $322.53 to fill at CVS. I'm not sure if this price is quoted with or without the use of an Rx savings card or patient assistance program; but those might be worth looking into as well depending on your situation. Hope this helps! ## $322? Jeez ur getting ripped off ! My 30 day script is only $10. Norco 10/325 only cosst .33 per pill ## Hi. Wow that is a great price your getting. Is it a big chain? Or just a very low profit pill? I remember buying Gonal F for $2000 for a ...

1-2, 7.5-325 generic norco every 6 hours

I've got a tooth infection and the dentist prescribed me 1-2 generic norco 7.5-325 every 6 hours. Can I take two like it says and be absolutely ok? I've just read that the usual dose is 1 every 4-6 hrs... ## The dosing can depend on the level of pain someone is in, some people might need to take 2 for relief, while others don't. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. Have you tried taking it, yet? Are you on any other medications? ## 1-1/2 works too it takes about an hour to start working, you may want to take every 5 hours. ## Oh god, I feel your pain, I have had some of the worst abscessed toothaches ever, with my face swollen all the way up the...

What is a white oblong pill imprinted WATSON 325 with a line in center of back

What is a white oblong pill imprinted WATSON 325 with a line in the middle of the back? ## yellow oblong pill with watson 10/325 line on other side ## In regards to the original post, that tablet has been asked about several times and I'm sorry, but at this time I am still unable to find an identification. It may be due to the late time that I am seeing these posts, it could've been something that has been removed from the market in the intervening years and is no longer available. However, I will keep looking and post an update, if I find anything on it. As to the bottom tablet with the WATSON 10/325 marking, I am actually not 100% certain, since I can't find anything in the various databases to confirm it, but these are reported to be an equivalent to Norco from a foreign ...

white pill one side upside down 1 other side 255

I found in my medicine bag a white oblong pill thicker than my regular 10/325 norco and wondered if from a sifferent manufacturer. One side has an upside down 1 next side has 255 ## Carvedilol 6.25 mg (made by Solco Healthcare LLC.) comes in a white oblong/oval shaped tablet with 255 on one side and blank on the other. I wonder if this drug manufacturer known as Solco could've made any changes to the appearance of their tablet or perhaps produces other white oblong pills with 255 on one side and an upside down 1 on the other... How large is the base of this '1' (the bottom part)? If it is upside down, that could possibly resemble a "J". Is it truly apparent that this is actually an upside down 1 or might it be some other letter or symbol? You may want to try taking t...
