i was prescribed talacen 25 650 why did pharmacist give me norco 5-650?

I DON'T LIKE TAKING PAIN MEDICINES AND I WANT TO KNOW IF THESE TWO ARE THE SAME OR DIFFERENT. FOR IN MY SEARCHING, THEY DON'T SEEM TO BE THE SAME, BUT DIFFERENT.SHOULD I RETURN THESE AND REQUEST THE TALACEN FOR THESE SEEM TO BE STRONGER. ## Hello, Cynthia! How are you? Yes, they are different medications, though both are narcotics, but the Norco contains Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone. 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, the pharmacist couldn't have switched it, without your doctor's approval, so you should contact your doctor about the issue. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## THANKS, WILL ...

Why don't they prescribe... it helped with my a broken back ## Hi Dana, I'm not finding any specific details on why it's been discontinued, but my guess is that it's because Talacen contained 650 mgs of Acetaminophen. As of 2014, the FDA passed a law saying that 325 mgs was the new maximum allowed dose to be in these types of medications. A lot of the more popular drugs like Norco and Percocet have lowered their standard dose to meet those requirements. However, if the makers of Talacen didn't want to do this, then that could be a likely reason for them to stop producing more. Has anyone else heard why it was taken off the market?
