I got a prescription for generic norco and it has watson 853 imprinted on it. I was wondering if I am getting the correct medication or if I am being ripped off at this pharmacy? It is yellow.

Watson 853 is indeed a generic for Norco. It contains Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone.

No listing for WW 2410, sorry.

M 89 is Meloxicam 15mgs, a generic for Mobic. This is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory.

Ron,

KALI 083 is Acetaminophen 325 mg + Tramadol 37.5 mg, which is generic for Ultracet.

I would not even call it 'generic Norco'. NORCO is 10mg/325mg hydrocodone/apap made by Watson. Watson 853 is 10mg/325mg hydrocodone/apap made by Watson. Where's the difference? Only the imprint on the tablet and the name on the box or blister pack. It is exactly the same product. End of story. You just don't get the 'Norco' printed on the box is all. Why Watson feel the need to take one of their hydro products and re-brand it at a much higher price I do not know. What you are getting IS Norco. The same product made on the same production line by the same manufacturer. I just don't see the point. Except that if you ask for 'Norco' you pay more money than if you ask for the Watson 853 tablet. THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE WHATSOEVER. Same product, even same fillers and binders. You are just paying a bit less, that's all. Another example of 'brandwashing' as practiced in the USA. Maybe Watson are smart enough to know that people will think that just because one of their pills is made to look a little different, they will think they are getting something different, which in this case they are NOT.

it is a pill cotaining basic same ingreidents, but beware since oct. of 08 FDA has informed all major manufacturers that there are ineffective, an unapproved ingredients, case for example the veteran administration was late getting their vet patients their pain meds because of hi demand for hi quality hyrocodone, but limited supplies of effective ingredients

Elementary my dear Watson. This pill will provide you in conjunction with a 40oz King Cobra a certain je ne sais quoi. But take two my friend and you can say hello to St peter at the pearly gates while still maintaining your earthly form. Just make sure to drink plenty of water to help your pal daLiver.

Debbie (post # 1),

There was nothing I could find with a WW 2410, but.... maybe this is it?

Carisoprodol
Strength(s): 350 mg
Imprint(s): 2410 V
NDC: 0603-2582

-----------------------------------------------

Nicole (post # 2),

Imprint(s): M357
NDC: 0406-0357

-----------------------------------------------

In regards to Post #12's mention of "watson 852", I believe you mean watson 853 which is listed above... I do not think it causes bleeding when:

1) taken properly
2) given the RX by a Doctor for a specific medical reason.
-----------------------------------------------

Good luck everyone!
