I just refilled my rx with brand name Norco 10/325 and they are white and are not effective. The generic yellows worked perfectly to relieve the chronic pain I have in my c2 and c4 areas of my neck. Severe stenosis with other conditions make everyday stuff undoable. I have tried 4 different types of generics and 2 gave me a headache every time I took them? So what did the yellow dye do to help in the delivery of this drug?

Hello, Marcus! How are you? I'm sorry about the problems you're experiencing.

It actually doesn't have anything to do with the dye, it has to due with the nature of generics. Under the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, they are allowed to differ from the name brand, in the amount of the active ingredient, by as much as plus or minus 20%, they also don't have to measure against each other, only against the name brand. Thus one generic may be lower in the amount of the active ingredient, while a different one might be slightly higher.

The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Headache can be a normal side effect, so those one might have been slightly higher.

Is there anything else I can help with?
