I refilled my prescription from my PMD (pain mgmt. Dr.). I go every 2 months. No problems thus far. Been doing this for years now since my car accident. Have herniated discs..bulging discs..all the fun. This time was different though. Got the generic Watson 853 (as usual) but they do NOTHING for pain but make me feel like I'm on a a bad acid trip and incredibly sleepy. They AREN'T anything like I've been taking all these years. I usually take 1/2 pill in am and another half in afternoon. With this I'm able to function and go to work and I do not abuse these!s I'm in so much pain right now! Don't know what to do. Called Watson pharmaceutical co first and all they do is right up a report. Lawyers office (supposedly reputable but NOT) says they can't do anything because I didn't suffer an injury..they just didn't' work. How the heck can you make the pharmaceutical co. responsible for selling crap?! It's not my dr's fault and he can't write me another scrip for the obvious. I'm suffering and this is crazy. Can anyone help me in regards of proving these pills are fake? is there a place to evaluate the pills I got at Walgreens pharmacy in Eustis Fl to prove its worthiness? What am I suppose to do?? go without my pain pills for next 2 months that have allowed me to function and move and do my job?!! OMG! Advice is needed. Thanks.

Sorry to hear about your experience with the Watson 853 pills. From what I can tell, it looks like plenty of other people here feel the same way about them not being effective at all:




There are labs that can analyze a pill's contents, percentages of ingredients and so forth, which may be worth looking into. I would probably encourage you to ask your local pharmacist about various facilities you can take your pills to or if they would be kind enough to run an analysis on location.

I think the only way around receiving these is to have your doctor write down a specific manufacturer's tablet directly on the prescription for the pharmacist to be aware of (maybe say for the purpose of avoiding certain inactive ingredients.., etc).

Good luck to you on getting everything straightened out with your meds. Hopefully the numerous reports about their ineffectiveness will help these manufacturers understand that it's a pretty serious issue that needs to be addressed.

Same problem here . This all started when Actavis acquired Watson. I'm 67 yrs old take this pills for numerous pain issues. They do not work on pain
This company should be investigated.
