Vintage Pharmaceuticals Inc. manufactures the pill V 3601.

Watson Pharmaceuticals also manufactures this drug. More specifically "Watson 358" is the same dosage as the pill you are describing.

And as far as I know, the brand name Watson is among the most popular. But based on this information maybe you can ask your pharmacy/doctor for the Watson brand (Watson 358) and see if you feel a difference in effectiveness. Hope this helps!

Please post back if you have any other questions or comments.

YOU ARE SO RIGHT! Those White pills do not work well at all! Call me crazy but I unfortunately have had to use norco 10/325's for a LONG time. I believe my body is ultra sensitive to the types of Pharmaceutical company's! Watson for me works the very best. I had to have my pharmacy special order Watson b/c this is what works for me!
Similar situation w/ another medication I use is Cholestyramine powder. The good company for this is "Par Pharmaceuticals"

I have taken a lot of different brands of Norco (10/325) and vicadin (5/500) and of the brands that I have taken, the best were the yellow Watson 853. Unfortunately they don't have them any more.

The Yellow pills work like an aspirin on me. Always the Watson brand is better for my disabilities. Good Luck!

The white pills (Watson 853).pain medication has changed ,they don't kill the pain because they changed the ingredients ,maybe because teva is not a American company but a Israel company and is running under a American company called narco , I would like to know if the fda is aware of the changes ??

That's a good question about if the FDA knows about The fillers and the change of these medications as with any medication can be very harmful to not only chronic pain patients as we are but as well as myself being a heart disease victim but if we got together and sign the petition and sent to the FDA to see if they were aware of this as it seems like fraud to me or maybe an attorney's help as I went to feel last month's prescription and I have been taking Norco 4 years due to several chronic pain injuries that I cannot have surgeries for due to the severity of my heart disease and this is the only medication I can take to keep me comfortable as there is nothing they can do for my heart so with them tampering with it as they say it is illegal for people to do with street drugs what is the difference? Anyone have an opinion? To the elderly with osteoarthritis as well as cancer and heart victims as myself and anyone who truly needs chronic pain management we are possibly being manipulated and could be a reason why so many commercials around TV from people dying prescription drugs because of the company's possibly changing the ingredients without the FDA being aware

Shari from Indiana Says:
My husband suffers from chronic pain from osteoarthritis for the last 20 plus years. He has been on hydrocodone 10's for the last 10 years. It takes the edge off not cure the pain but its enough that he can stay mobile and active. He does not abuse it by any means. My point is, a few months ago his pain management doctor tried a mailing company, Cordant out of Indianapolis, who uses Watson (Actavis) pharm company. For the last 2 months I have watched him decline rapidly. Unable to do simple tasks, no energy and pain mounting higher and higher. The thought crossed my mind recently, maybe they've changed the medication and added fillers to make more money. As I got on the internet, I see others have had the same issues with this company. I can verify this by watching him get fast relief when he started a new bottle of hydrocodone by another company from our local drug store instead of Cordant mailing company. What is happening is CRIMINAL! I would be more than happy to get involved in some kind of legal suit or petition of some kind. Does anyone have any info on what we can do or is there something already in action that I can be a apart of. We the people need to stand up for what is right and face the giant.

I have recently (being a 10/325 had the same experience with Norco...not dulling any pain. Since I am a continent illeostomy patient and can see what comes down the tube several weeks ago I SAW practically a whole pill in the tube. I complained to the pharmacy and they said oh you need the yellow pill. Same deal. The pills seem to be shiny and enteric coated. I have now resorted to crushing as much as I can and throwing in my mouth with a large glass of water. Working a little better....but not much. I recently had knee surgery and thought I'd never survive it because of the pain. I think the pills were the problem. I'm going to try my 3rd pharmacy after the next "meeting" with the pain clinic. Here in CA we are severely monitored. Makes me feel like I'm a dealer or something. I can live a fairly decent life on them.
The sad part is once you get your prescription filled....too bad. You are stuck for another month.

I honestly believe pharmaceutical companies are decreasing the main drug that is used for pain, and adding more tylenol..more money is made. I get deathly sick on some of these generics. I believe the FDA needs to take these drugs and evaluate them to see if they met requirements.
