rp 10 325

Was getting these in A larger yellow tablet and was suprised to open my bottle this month and find this smaller different looking white pill. Now I wonder if it is as good as the yellow I have been taking ?? Or have I been switched to a less effective generic by my pharmacist bcuz he samed money on a batch of something that is not going to work as well for me ## Hello, Larry! How are you? These tablets are listed as containing 325mgs of Acetaminophen and 10mgs of Oxycodone, the active ingredients in Percocet or Roxicet. Which generic your pharmacy carries may change, at any given time, depending on which manufacturer was offering the cheapest price, at the time they needed to restock their supply. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause si...

A pill with a backwards imprint?

I've found 2 pills in my drawer and I have no idea what they are. They are white, oblong, solid and the imprint is very odd. It's a backwards COL and then 119. If you put it up to a mirror then you can read it. I've been searching online for awhile now and can't figure out what it is. ## The imprint is actually meant to be cor 116 and the tablets contain 650mgs of Acetaminophen, in a time released formulation. This is the generic, or store brand of Tylenol Arthritis Pain. NDC: 63868-0089 Inactive ingredients may include: Croscarmellose Sodium Hypromelloses Magnesium Stearate Cellulose, Microcrystalline Povidone Starch, Pregelatinized Corn Propylene Glycol Sodium Lauryl Sulfate Stearic Acid Titanium Dioxide Is there anything else I can help with?

Neural Forte Sluter Domull

I have degenerative arthritis and diabetes type 2. This medicine is recommended for inflammation and neuropathy. Does one need a prescription? Do they sell this med in the USA? ## Hi Maria, From what I could gather, "neural forte sluter domull" appears to be a product of Mexico. And just for clarification, my understanding is that "Neural forte" is the medication name and "Fluter Domull" is the manufacturer. In my findings this particular brand does not appear to be available in the US. However, the majority of its ingredients are readily available over the counter: Vitamin B1 (50 mg) Vitamin B6 (100 mg) Vitamin B12 (1000 mg) Acetaminophen (500 mg) The other listed component in Neural goes by the following chemical name at a dosage of 1mg (which may or may not re...

n358 on one side and 10 the other

Want to make sure pharmacy gave me the correct medication. I had taken some pain medication that has M367 but today the pharmacy gave me a pill with the letter "n" on the left side and "358" on the right side of the score line. On the other side it has number "10". Just want to make sure I got the correct medication for pain. Not more or less of what my Dr has been giving me. I take a 10mg dose. I am supposed to take 10mg of hydrocodone and 325mg of acetaminophen. Want to make sure that is what I got today. ## I had to double check also. They are hydro 10s. No worries. ## RE: n358 hydrocodone Why do people always say "I found this pill"?... B.S. why can't they just say I got this pill, trying to make sure it's what I think it is or bought or whate...

Hydrocodone pill that says u03

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...

Half Of White Oval Pill 84

I found a half of a white oval pill scored 84 (the left half is missing) In my teenage sons room. I'd like more info befour I ask him about it. Any help or advice please? ## With only half of the pill, so this site doesn't know the full imprint, it is going to be difficult to narrow down what this is. There are several possibilities, both among prescription medications and over the counter products. Just as an example: A white, oval, marked L484 is 500mgs of Acetaminophen, a generic, or store brand of Tylenol. It could be half of this one is the imprint is kind of shallow and not well done, since it's an over the counter product. Does anyone else have any ideas of what this could be? ## found the same thing in my pocketbook when I emptied it andU I believe it is an OTC Aceto...
