vicodin and percocet together by mistake
5 Replies RSS
I took a vicodin 5 at around 11 sm at around 1 pm I went to take another vicodin but picked up the wrong bottle (my husband had surgery and his dr gave him percocet). Since they looked the same, I didn't think about it until I put the bottle away and noticed my husband's name on it. The percocet is 7.5. I only got three hours of sleep last night, so I don't know the reason why I am so lathargic. I also have hypokalemia due to medication, so my system is very sensative. I don't even take asprin because of that, but I am in so much pain my dr prescribed vicodin 5. Should I be as concerned as I am? I am not a pill person. Thanks! ## For 9 months I was on both Vicodin 10/325 and Oxycodone 30mg. Both meds were prescribed to take on a daily basis as needed--separate or togethe...

best norco brand
34 Replies RSS
Hi, i get the yellow norco pill with a cursive v and 3601 on the back. Is there a better brand? ## 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. ## what pharmacies use this watson or vintage kind? i got the m357 and its horrible. publix and walmart both use this..i dont wantit again ## YOU ARE SO RIGHT! Those White pills do not work wel...

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Pain Medication In Louisiana
233 Replies RSS
I need to find a Dr. To write a Rx. For hydrocodin for chronic back pain, where can I find one in Southern Louisiana? ## Well, first of all, there is no listing to refer to that tells you what doctors in any given location will prescribe any given medication. And the next issues is that you really aren't going to be able to see a new doctor and ask for a specific medication, because they are taught to see that as drug seeking behavior. Learn more Vicodin details here. Your best bet, if you need long-term pain management, is to see a pain management specialist and set up an appointment to get in the door, without asking is they will prescribe anything. Then make sure that they get a full copy of your medical records, so the documented medical problems and notes from your prior doctor...

Can you tell me about any doctors who can prescribe Vicodin ## You'll get a much better response if you post back and state what area you are in. From your current post, people can only guess.

blue pill with v on one side and 144 on the other
6 Replies RSS
found a pill in my daughters purse. it was blue round and had a v on one side and 144 on the other. please let me know what it is? ## Right now my best guess is that it's some sort of over the counter product because the inscription which you described is not appearing as part of the standard U.S. prescription drugs. The FDA requires all prescription meds to carry a unique imprint code and description and those tend to be cataloged properly. Another possibility is that it is a prescription medication from outside the U.S. but at this point it is hard to tell. Can you share any other details such as packaging, manufacturer name, or anything else? ## Could always be a fake, they are taking vicodin and percs and changing them up a little by removing the imprint on it and adding color o...

Learn more Vicodin details here. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Just trying to figure out what the actual mg are for these pills. I see 2 different ones. Usually on a bottle it would give just 1 number on what Mg's it is... Are these 750mg or 375mgs? I'm getting different answers. I know it says 325mg/7.5mg,but your doc would say im prescribing you 750mg of so n so or 375mgs of so n so, not 325mg & 7.5mg of so n so cause it would confuse a person on exactly what Mg's they are taking!

People with chronic, intractable pain are being discriminated against and it is imperative that we join forces to fight for our civil rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Please send information on existing associations and organizations that can help or how to establish one that can help pain patients fight for their rights with petitions, letters; emails to send to these state and federal politicians that are determined use prescription drugs, doctors and pharmacies to further their political careers.

Fake yellow v 3601
57 Replies RSS
I refilled my prescription and received some yellow 10/325 vicodin. I normally take my dose and feel so much better, but the ones I just got make me so so sick. I vomit and feel hungover. I am concerned these are a bad batch or something I need them for my pain but am so scared to take these particular ones again. How can I tell if they are fake and/or bad? Please help. ## @Concerned patient, If you're receiving these meds through your doctor from a licensed pharmacy there should be no reason to even question whether or not they're real/fake. Pharmacies don't dispense fake medication, but often times they do dispense ineffective brands/generics that lack quality from cheap manufacturers. I usually don't see too many complaints pertaining to the yellow V 36 01 from Qualit...
