2172 hydrocodone

Is it really norco? I just got my refill today and they are not working as well as my previous prescription. ## Hi Yaya, My research from the manufacturer depicts a white oval tablet marked with 2172 to be identified as a generic Hydrocodone Bitartrate 5mg + Acetaminophen 325mg pill. For verification, it carries a National Drug Code of 0591-2172 and is reportedly a product of Actavis Pharmaceuticals that from what I could gather, seems like a newer generic tablet since information about it is relatively sparse on the internet. Hope this helps! ## I have the exact same problem ! The ones with the 2172 do not work the same as the 3604 did . How is this even possible ? Or is it. Are they exactly the same ? ...

pill 2172 actavis

I got the same white oval 2172 imprint for my Norco Rx. I searched for information on this but didn't find anything until I looked here. I thought the pharmacy made a mistake. It is not effective for my pain and made me very nauseated. I don't like this "new" brand at all! I wonder if the pharmacy would exchange them for the previous manufacturer. I can't tolerate the nausea and almost had to miss work due to the nausea not to mention that I was still in pain. ## wondering if they replaced for you. i got these today and was on oxycodone right after a shoulder surgery. Today he gave me the 5/325 and my pharmacy gave me the generic which was this 2172. I've taken some today and feel nothing. ## I'm in the same boat. For the last 4 years have always received Wat... ...

hydrocodone 2172

Hey, i got these pills today from walgreens and i have taken 3 so far and still no affect on my pain. Has anyone else had this same problem because idk of they took most of the hydro out of these new pills but there's definitely something wrong. I will not be getting these from my Dr again. ## The 5/325 are worthless, have your doctor prescribe the A333 10/325. I have taken three per day (every 8 hours) for the past twelve years because of a failed Lammy. They at times don't get rid of all the pain but its bearable. ## I just got the same pills from Walgreen and also want to know ## I also just got these today and they are not releiving my pain. I'm calling Walgreens now to speak to a Pharmacist. ACTAVIS is the Mfg. This is what the Local stores are being shipped. ## I also ... ...

2172 Vicodin lortab

What is 2172 white oval pill I can't identify it is it a Vicodin 5/325 I can't find what this pill is is it a lortab or is it a 10/325 ## Hello, Kelli! How are you? This tablet is very new and I've only recently been able to find verifiable information on it, but it does contain 5mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. The U.S. FDA classifies it as being a narcotic analgesic, so it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Been on this for years and again these 2172 are not the same. They must differ in someplace. I get nauseous from them.

White oval pill 2172 norco

Is this a generic norco from walgreens? - white oval pill 2172 scored on back side blank ## will 2172 have the same effect as 3202? how much more friggin' detail do u want? ## @RPMJR, Yes, a white oval pill with 2172 is generic Hydrocodone Bitartrate 5mg + Acetaminophen 325mg with a National Drug Code of 0591-2172. Seems like a lot of people here on MedsChat have asked about this pill just within the past couple days so I'm assuming it's a relatively new product and not much info has been posted on the internet. For verification, Actavis Pharmaceuticals is the manufacturer. @Mr. Breeze, 2172 and WATSON 3202 are the same drug with the same listed dosage... But as many of us have come to find out, generic drugs tend to vary in efficacy from one tablet to the next. Furthermore,... ...

2172 hydrocodone efficacy

I thought I was going nuts until I googled this strange and worthless new pill. Definitely NOT the same and I will be calling my pain management doctor and have something else prescribed if this is how it's gonna be. I wonder if walmart has the "real deal"... gonna give walgreens a talking to too. How dare they try and trick bag the public like this! Chronic pain is nothing to take lightly. ## Hello, Madkatt! How are you? I'm very sorry that this tablet doesn't work for you. However, no one is trying to trick the public. Under the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, generics are allowed to differ from the name brand by as much as plus or minus 20%, in the amount of the active ingredients. They also don't have to measure against each other, only against the name brand. This... ...

2172 hydrocodone - is it a pain pill

Need to know if this is a generic version for Norco (hydrocodone/acetaminophen) 5/325 (2172). What is this pill? ## Hello, Honey! How are you? Yes, after days of looking, I've finally found confirmation that it is. 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## FDA needs to remove 2172 pills from market. They are worthless. Shame on Walgreens for passing these off as 5/325s. I guess the bottom line is money and not your health. Good by Walgreens $$$$$$. Never to big to fail. ## THE NEW ONES ARE AWFUL. THEY DONT HELP PAIN. JUST MAKE ME FEEL LIKE A ZOMBIE.

White oval pill with imprint 2172

Found a white oval pill with imprint 2172 in my son's sock drawer and need to know what it is. ## Hi Lisa, From what I could gather, a white oval pill marked with 2172 is identified as a generic Hydrocodone Bitartrate 5mg + Acetaminophen 325mg tablet. Apparently it's a fairly new manufactured version made by Actavis and that may be why there aren't many references to it here/online yet. For verification, the national drug code is reportedly 0591-2172. I hope this helps! ## Thank you so much for the information David this was very helpful ## This is true. New generic for Norco 3/325.

Show a picture of the pill. White oblong white with 2172 on front. This for a pain pill Norco 5-325. ## Hi Lola, I don't have a photograph to show you, but you can always verify the tablet through its National Drug Code of 0591-2172 and drug manufacturer, which is Actavis Pharmaceuticals.

Actavis hydrocodone/acetaminophen 5-325 2172

I've just had my very first surgery at age 22 on my right ear (Tymnoplasty). I was actually fine with mild pain leaving the hospital and was given this prescription at Walgreens to take every four hours before any pain started when leaving the hospital. I've never had a problem with generic medication, but this is possibly the worse pain I've experienced! I called my doctor to let him know and he explained to take another even though I had just taken this one at 7. It is now 9, I am on my second pill and still feel no relief. I then had to call my doctor again in which he said it could be the brand of the medicine. He actually prescribed me Norco but Walgreens gave me this because of my insurance. I know I should experience little to no pain, but pain that makes you cry shou... ...

White Oval 2172 (hydrocodone acetaminophen) 5/325

What u guy's mean it makes u feel like a zombie because i just got a my RX from Walgreens and i have something with a 2172 and i normally get 3202 and i'm afraid to take these. Please help me ## Hi Sunnie, Since everyone responds to medication differently, there's no real way of knowing ahead of time if you're going to have a similar reaction or even no side effects at all. Because the outcome isn't set in stone, I would probably suggest taking other opinions lightly until you have a chance to try it for yourself at least once. If it's of any help though, here are a couple other active discussion threads on the 2172 pill: Discuss/hydrocodone-2172-306266.htm Discuss/pain-pill-2172-norco-305949.htm Hope this helps. ## I too have been on the Watson 5-325 with red sp... ...

White pill 2172 hydrocodone acetaminophen 5/325

2172 pills from Walgreens are not any where near Watson 3202. Don't relieve pain and will give you a headache. I tried to tell the pharmacist but they said that is what they shipped. This is what I have to deal with, *****s. ## There's actually been several complaints here recently on these newer 2172 pills. Since they're generic, my guess is that the percentage of active ingredients are probably less than other manufacturer's versions. Not to mention the different binders/fillers that affect bioavailability or cause unwelcome side effects. It's a shame that pharmacies always go for the cheapest offer they can get and care nothing about quality control for their loyal customers/patients who have to rely on this medication. The entire healthcare sector and our economy... ...

The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Does the pill 2172 have a line in the middle on one side and the number 2172 on the other side please respond back to me with a yes or no answer ...

2172 hydrocodone acetaminophen 5-325 tb mfg. Actavis

I am reading a lot of complaints about this drug. I was taking Watson 3202 5-325 for pain and it worked for my pain. Now Actavis makes 2172 in place of Watson 3202. I don't see any difference. ## Some people may be more sensitive to different inactive ingredients than others. Their bodies may also process/metabolize these ingredients at a different rate, affecting absorption. However, the amount of active ingredients in generic drugs is rumored to fluctuate by up to 20% more or less. I don't know if this varies from batch to batch, but I'm glad to hear that someone else is having a good experience with the 2172 pill, as it goes to show that everyone really does react differently, despite the nay sayers calling it a placebo by comparison to Watson's older products. Please... ...

2172 Hydrocodone Acetaminophen-Actavis/Walgreens Complaint

I too had my RX medication refilled (again) at Walgreens, but this time (When I did not take my RX Tylenol with it, like I always do) I noticed, that I have been given a different Brand of medication (A Generic Brand/MFG by-ACTAVIS). My "Norco-Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen 5-325/TB" did not work as prescribed or even when I took 3 pills at one time (because 1 nor 2 pills didn't work/relieve my pain). I believe I have been given FAKE NORCO/Hydrocodone pills (white/#2172 on them) from Walgreens Pharmacy. Today I contacted the DEA & FDA via email and requested that they investigate my complaint as soon as possible. ## Hi Lisa, Sorry to hear about your experience with these new 2172 hydrocodone/acetaminophen tabs. There are actually several discussion threads here on MedsChat co... ...

My prescription has always had the label, Watson on one side the other 3202 white oval tablet. This month my refill is different, white oval tablet with #2172 on one side. They told me they're from a different manufacturer, and they seem to not help as much. Is this a weaker brand, was told possibly a (placebo) can you advise me ? Thank you. ## Hello, David! How are you? Has there been any change? It is not a placebo, but there have been many complaints about it lacking efficacy. 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. You may need to consult your doctor about taking an alternative medication, for awhile, until you can find a ... ...
