I have been taking Hydrocodone-Acetominophen 7.5-325 for years for degenerative disks in my back. The generic Aurobindo tablets don't work for me and make me nauseated. Applause go to: Mallinckrodt. Mallinckrodt manufactures that same prescription (white pill M366) and they are the only ones I have found that actually work with no unpleasant side effects. I really wish my pharmacy hadn't switched manufacturers. I am extremly disappointed in Aurobindo generic for Norco. The other one that didn't work was orange with a V on one side and 36|05 on the other, manufactured by Qualitest. It was garbage, just like the Aurobindo.

I've probably just read 50 reviews on Hydrocodone 10-325's & you're the first person that actually has something good to say about Mallinckrodt. It's the only manufacture I can take, everything else makes me sick as a dog and doesn't touch the pain what-so-ever. Now I'm just having a hard time finding that brand. Let's hope they stay in business!

Before accepting any other manufacturer's version of hydrocodone that you're not used to having, I would try and find out what inactive ingredients are being used in the tablets; and take note of its composition to help pinpoint the cause of a lack of efficacy in comparison to a tablet that does work.

When it comes to brand name medication, binders and fillers tend to be the only things that change when you switch from one version of a tablet to another.

However, generics are also rumored to contain up to 20% more OR less active ingredients as well. This could mean that a 10mg Hydrocodone only has 8mg, while another generic might have up to 12mg. Only a lab analysis would tell us for certain; but couple this inconsistency with different sets of binders / fillers and it probably feels like you're taking a different medication altogether...

Hopefully you can get your doctor to specify a particular manufacturer's name on future prescriptions to help avoid any added stress.

"Try to identify the inactive ingredients"...that's exactly why I've been posting to this website and so far no one has given any advice on this. Got a suggestion?

They no longer have the stronger ingredients that give some a euphoric feeling I guess because of the fight against addiction. That's what the Dr. thinks. Now my Rx says I can take two at a time but it wont take away the pain so what do I do now??? The Mfr is AUROBINDO.
