Acetaminophen Overview

Paracetamol, also known as acetaminophen or APAP, is a medication used to treat pain and fever.[1] It is typically used for mild to moderate pain.[1] The quality of the evidence regarding the use for fever relief in children is poor.[11] It is often sold in combination with other ingredients such as in many cold medications.[1] In combination with opioid pain medication, paracetamol is also used for more severe pain such as cancer pain and after surgery.[12] It is typically used either by mou...

Difference between yellow hydrocodone acetaminophen with 1096 vs white pill same strength but u03. Both say sub for norco.
104 Replies RSS
Just want to know difference between both pills, beside Manufacturers. I was taking Hydocodone-Acetaminophen 10-325 yellow pill #1096 on one side a V on other side. I was then switched to a white oval pill with the same strength, but has U03 on one side. both say substituted for Norco. ## Hello, Chula! How are you? That is the only difference. When a medication is available for generic production, it is usually manufactured by several different companies, because this creates market competition to help keep prices down. The FDA classifies this medication as being 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Even though both are ge...

Hydrocodone pill that says u03
79 Replies RSS
Has anyone seen a hydrocodone pill that has u03 on it? ## There actually are white oval-shaped pills marked with U03 that are identified as Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone bitartrate (325/10mg). Manufacturer: Aurolife Pharma LLC These pills do seem to be uncommon though, as I rarely even hear mention of them among all the other brands on the market. Learn More: Acetaminophen + Hydrocodone I hope this info helps! ## Just got refill & it was these U03's. They are pretty weak compared to the former "Lortab" however they are controlling my pain somewhat... ## The.e weaker? I had never seen them before today. At 1st, I thought pharmacy gave me wrong med until I googled it. It should be basically same thing; However, have you noticed the change in the name & came outright af...

Watson 853 White or Yellow Pill
42 Replies RSS
I've been taking the Watson 853 yellow hydro /acetaminophen for several years. I get them from a well known pharmacy company. My most recent script was filled and I noticed the color was white, even though the markings of Watson 853 are identical to the light yellow pill. There was a huge difference in side effects with the new pill; constipation, dry mouth, and a little nasal congestion that I typically get from preservatives like sulfites. Many people get these symptoms when taking narcotics, but I have been fortunate with the hydrocodone as it has never affected me that way (oxycodone does however) I called the pharmacist and he said he couldn't get the yellow tabs anymore but wouldn't say one way or the other whether the formulation or fillers in the white pill differ fr...

Is there anything I can use to help with withdrawal symptoms? I'm addicted to stilpane and I stopped once but the withdrawal symptoms were terrible, then I started again. I need help urgently. ## Hello, Zee! How are you? Please seek medical attention. These contain Acetaminophen and taking that much of it in a day creates the risk of toxicity, which has the potential to be fatal. You may already have done permanent damage to your liver. Have you had any stomach pain? Any yellowing of the skin? You're going to need to do a slow taper to be able to stop taking them. ## Hi verwon I'm greatful to your reply the doctors don't tell you these things they actually the ones giving you the meds for pain relief because I had my womb removed a couple of years ago it was extremely pa...

White caplet with APO on one side and 325 on the other side
1 Reply RSS
Trying to figure out what this pill is that I found in my son's room. It's white with APO on one side and 325 on the other side. ## Hi Marry, Based on my research, a white oblong-shaped caplet with "APO" on one side and "325" on the other, reportedly contains 325mgs of Acetaminophen (also known as Tylenol). It also contains the following set of inactive ingredients: Hydroxypropyl cellulose + hydroxypropyl methylcellulose + polyethylene glycol + povidone + sodium starch glycolate + starch + stearic acid + titanium dioxide. For verification, the Drug Identification Number (DIN #) is listed as 02229873 and this appears to be a product of Canada. I hope this helps!

No worries people, the yellow 853 are exactly the same as the white one's, JUST NO DYE ## For anyone else wondering, I can also confirm that "dye" is the only thing separating these two pills. According to, the 10 mg/325 mg and 10 mg/750 mg tablets include "D&C Yellow #10 Aluminum Lake" You can learn more about this drug on the page for Acetaminophen + Hydrocodone I hope this helps! ## Well, jbone & David, I can't see why so many, myself included, have had such ad reactions to the white Watsons. I don't take narcotics often but I did for 11 years. I have never had this type of problem with hydrocodone as I did last week! It didn't touch my pain at all and it made me very sick! Something is going on with them, most definitely! ## There is s...
