Are they the same pill, with the same marking?

Or did your pharmacy just provide you with a new one from a different manufacturer?

Learn more Norco details here.

There are some manufactured by Watson that have had the die removed and some people have said that they don't seem to work as well as the old tablets with the dye in them.

However, you haven't provided enough information for anyone to really be able to help you.

Dear backache101, the white ones are different. They are ineffective and come with a myriad of side effects, some potentially dangerous. Be careful. See if the pharmacy has the yellow ones in stock still and request them.

Angel Says:

I only got a new script which included the white ones as well. My pharmacist insists that the white ones are the same strength and medications as the yellow ones, but the preservative or sulfate that people tend to have allergic reactions to are no longer included in the white ones. She said the strength and performance are supposed to be the same. I will try them, and if they do not seem to work as well, I will also ask for the yellow ones to be returned to me. Many stories are going around right now, but until several people I know personally have tried them, or I have had enough time to decide for myself, I won't argue the point. Try not to take another's word for it.

I am normally a Watson fan........last script from Walgreens was the white ones and did nothing. Went back to the 7.5s by qualitest and they did the job way better. I cannot stand walgreens

I have been on Hydrocodone 10/325 for the last 8 yrs, made by Mylan until this last rx. I had absolutely no trouble with this med. It worked well for my chronic pain with no side effects for me. The new rx is made by Watson and after 2 weeks, I can say that these new white generics are just not working. They don't even come close to killing the pain and when taken, make me sick. I called several local pharmacies and none are carrying the Mylan brand. What is going on? Does anyone know?

It's The DEA, They Are Making Healthcare Choices for Us Now. They Have Made It Almost Impossible To Fill Any Pain Medication in Florida. They Are Treating Pharmacist and Pharmaceutical Companies Like Drug Dealers. It's Only Getting Worse. Sick Disabled People Are Suffering. If we Don't Start Calling Every Elected Person And Complain Nothing Will Change. If You Are Sick Of All The Changes Call, send them Emails Send them letters in the mail.

Good to read these replies. Thought it was just me. I take Watsons hydrocodone 7.5-325. They use to be a peach color, now changed to white. I use Walgreens. Since changing to the white ones, it hasn't helped my pain much, I've been sleeping more, and been feeling somewhat depressed. I do not like the changes that are occurring and will probably have to change to another manuf. Watson needs to be notified of this.

My understanding is they took most the tylenol out of them. You will not see any vicotin over 325mg any more. tThe problem is they are not nearly effective without all the tylenol in them the two ingredients together is what make them work so good. Now we have to up the dosage or the pill strength to get the same equalivant we had before. Good luck trying to get it across to your doc's. I smell a rat all ready I just made an appt. and my doc is never busy to get me in but they tell me she is double booked. And I have to see another doctor this time. And they are letting me see the doc who is supose to be a pain specialist, who when I first started going to this doc they told me I had to wait three months to see him. Now all of a sudden he is going to see me on a two week notice!! go figure. I also am getting the run a round for years. I was at the nuerologist because of back and neck cronic pain with documentation and the doc said they dont want to help me. I said who he said the insurance company dont want to pay for me to get back on my feet!! I think Im going to see an attorney about this matter why the hell is the state using this insurance company if they dont want to help me.

I picked up white Norco 10/325 yesterday and it's like taking a Tylenol. I took 2 pills and still nothing. My shoulder is injured with torn rotator cuff. I'm waiting for surgery. This sucks. I'm sick to my stomach. I feel like crap. What gives?? Last week I had yellow pills and I wasn't sick and could tolerate the pain. So not cool. I called the pharmacy and they said they don't make the yellow pills anymore. Just like that? What do I do? Suffer.

Kris Says:

It is really bad everywhere. My mom lives in Michigan and cannot even stand up straight much less walk without her pain meds. The physicians are no longer able to prescribe narcotic pain meds, so they sent her to a pain clinic where they began putting shots in her back and neck and still no pain meds!!! She has been without for almost 3 months now and I am outraged that they have taken away any decent quality of life she has left.

In Southwest Louisiana, Drs are dropping the writing of narcotics. I was told after Jan 1, '16, they are phasing them out. (my pain mgmt grp.). Cannot find anyone that takes my medicare anymore. I have been here for 5 years. I cant even get a referral from them. I had a neck surgery with hardware that was botched and the former surgeon had a major accident and is now disabled and destitute. Took over 4 years of struggle and sleepless nights before someone would even see me. Now my low back is degenerating and I have to deal again. Have done all PM asked. Obeyed all rules. Did multiple injections, electrotherapy, massage, PT. I get no relief from this types of "pain therapy". What the heck do I do now? I am 58 years old now. Sorry. 59. I am getting a few days of relief as I am in the hospital now with pneumonia/severe bronchitis/spinal pain which they are treating. The Cash Only Docs here charge from $350-$550 a visit with deposits ranging. I cannot afford those as many can't. I do not and will not sell any meds. I need what I get and do not want to see the inside of a jail cell. Thanks for listening everybody. THANK YOU ALL...AGAIN.

I finally bit the bullet hard and went cold turkey. Stopping is the hardest thing to do. Starting again is too easy. But I could not get my doctor to write any more Norco 325/10 or anything for that fact. The pharmacy (Target) would not even fill the scripts either!! I spent hours and days filling pain med scripts. That's painful enough. I've been clean for 5 days now. Im still sick to my stomach and not sleeping well. I ache and hurt all over. My shoulder is killing me. I'm suffering. My doctor and I had a great relationship until just after the holidays when he suddenly said he didn't feel comfortable writing any more scripts for me. Told me to find a pain management doc. No surgery is going to fix me. My mother is crippled with pain just like me but chose to drink alcohol to kill her pain. The system is flawed and we have no where to go. Now I just sit at home waiting to die.

Dixie Says:

My Mother and 2 sisters committed suicide because they could not get proper pain management. I pray that I die every night because I have a terminal illness and cannot get anything stronger than Ibuprofen. You are not alone. I think they (whoever They are) want people to commit suicide so we aren't their problem anymore. My Doctor just looked at me and shook his head, refused to give me a referral for pain assessment and management. This world is in a very sad state now.

I pray you get the relief and help u need because i know how u feel and when the ones (doctor's) who's supposed to be the ones helping you aren't its just sad and pityful. They need to understand that everyone cannot afford to pay for a pain management doctor when your living and basing your life on (SSI) a monthly income. At times u feel as though death is an escape, but i hope someone hears your cries and i wish i could be there to give u a hug and assure u that its it's go work out and dont give up. Well ill keep u in my prayers. Hang in there sweety.
