Lortab watson 385
5 Replies RSS
Does anyone know if watson 385 is 10 mg Lortab ## Watson 385 is actually a generic Lortab - Acetaminophen 500 mg + Hydrocodone 7.5 mg ## watson 385 is a lortab 7.5 ## This provide identifications are correct, this is a 7.5/500mg generic for Lortab. Learn more Lortab details here. Since this is a narcotic analgesic, it may be habit forming and might cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and constipation. Additionally, as of now the FDA has requested that the amount of Acetaminophen in all these combined medications be lower to a maximum of 325mgs, since high doses of it taken long-term may cause liver damage/failure and overdose can be fatally toxic. Some manufacturers have already begun to implement the changes and the rest are expect to have done so by January 2014.... ...

Did they change this medication from yellow to white? The pharmacy says yes but they don't seem to work the same as the yellow. Watson 853 generic hydrocodone and are causing strange stomach ache. I think I should report this to watson. Just wondering if any one else has had this experience with the change ## Yes, they have been removing the dye from many of their tablets, due to some people being allergic or sensitive to them. Learn more Vicodin details here. There have been several other people that complained that they don't seem to be the same, so yes, I think you should report the issue. Is there anything else I can help with? ## They changed mine from peach to white and it's not working the same. I still have pain, my brain feels stupid, and it's making me really t... ...

Does anyone know why Watson generic 10/500mg Lortab is no longer available? I am a chronic pain sufferer and have been on this medication for many years. Now my Pharmacy has changed to a different generic and they do not relieve pain. My Dr. told me to change Pharmacies in order to get the Watson Lortab but other Pharmacies don't carry them either. They have a pink one. ## i live in alabama and my mother in law takes lortab 10. i found the blue ones at walgreens. hope this helps. ## FDA NEWS RELEASE For Immediate Release: January 13, 2011 The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is asking manufacturers of prescription combination products that contain acetaminophen to limit the amount of acetaminophen to no more than 325 milligrams (mg) in each tablet or capsule.

Watson Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (now Actavis, Inc); located at: Morris Corporate Center III 400 Interpace Parkway Parsippany, NJ 07054 Contact Details: Phone: +1 862 261-7000 Website: actavis.com ## Hi Alice, I appreciate you sharing the contact info for Actavis, as I imagine that they are probably getting swamped with complaints from manufacturing inferior products such as Norco. Hopefully enough to trigger a change back to the old formula. I also want to mention though, that the phone number for U.S. Customer Relations is different than the one you posted to their "Administrative Headquarters". The number listed on their webpage for Customer Relations is +1 (800) 272-5525. However there's no mention of what office hours they hold on any given day, so if you are able to get th... ...

I took a couple from my new prescription yesterday, and let me tell you, they ARE NOT THE SAME. It felt like I had taken Xanax or Valium. Not the same feeling as Norco's... They made me sick after taking just two... I never throw up on regular pain pills. I do however, always throw up when I take benzo's... What's the deal with that. Of course I can't go to my doctor and ask him for a refill a week after I got this one. Plus it does nothing for my pain what so ever. I guess they changed it up to be less habit forming. I don't know... I just hope I got a bad batch or something because I will be taking these to the doctor to complain. ## It seems to me that an ever growing number of people are having similar issues with these newer white Watson pills. You can see the g... ...

Watson Bupropion Xl
3 Replies RSS
Feedback about Watson Bupropion XL ## is Watson bupropion XL better than other brands? ## While Watson is generally sought out to be one of the more commonly known brands it doesn't necessarily mean that it is better than some others out there. Certain "inactive" ingredients that may or may not be present in each brand, are actually detrimental to how the drug is metabolized and used by your body. Because everyone is different, your body may agree with one medication over the other, due to how you feel or based on whatever side effects present themselves. When you switch brand names, the drug itself doesn't change, but rather the ingredients or fillers that they put with it. I hope this helps! ## There is really no way to say that one from any manufacturer is better than... ...

My pharmacist said watson changed their name is this true ## From what I've seen mentioned, they've been purchased by another pharmaceutical manufacturer, they didn't actually change their name, so to speak. I've not seen any official confirmations of this, though. Learn more Percocet details here. The tablet in question contains 10mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, which is a generic for Percocet. It is a narcotic pain reliever that has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, constipation and dry mouth.

Does anyone know? ## 500 mg Acetaminophen, 7.5 mg Hydrocodone ## The dosage as listed by Jason is correct, so thanks go out to him! This is a generic for Lortab or Vicodin, as a narcotic, it does have the potential to be habit forming and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and constipation. Learn more Lortab details here. Another note I'd like to add is that as of the time I'm posting, the FDA has requested that all of these combination prescription medications be changed to only contain a maximum of 325mgs of Acetaminophen, due to the dangers of liver damage/failure that can be associated with long-term use and the toxicity of overdose.

Are Watson 503 still available at Pharmacies in the US? ## No, they are no longer available here. All combination prescription products have been changed to contain no more than 325mgs of Acetaminophen per dose and this one contained 650mgs with the 10mgs of Hydrocodone. 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.

I just recieved a new prescription of norco 853 10/325. The last script was yellow and the new ones are white. The pharmacist said that Watson changed the color but the pill is the same, does anyone know if this is accurate? ## Watson has change a few different medications and the colors are different. But the Norco you're referring to is the same medication that you were prescribed prior. It is just as effective as the script you had filled before this one and it's a good thing that you ask the pharmacist, the pharmacist is correct. ## LuLu is correct and so was your pharmacist. There have been several posts on here recently about various Watson tablets being white now. It seems that some people were sensitive or allergic to the dyes they were using, thus they decided to do awa... ...

They were green before the change to white ## Hi Liz, How have the white tablets been working for you in comparison to the green ones you were originally taking? Only asking because I've heard a lot of rumors stating that, although the color appears to be the only difference, the white one's tend to be much much weaker. Do you also find this to be true? It may also be important to know that Watson was recently taken over by what is now known as Actavis Pharma. I think it's a mere speculation at this point, but the change in ownership may have resulted in a change in formula as well, to help cut costs. A series of lab tests could probably reveal the true cause behind the differences in strength and overall efficacy of these new white tablets that others are complaining about.... ...

Does anyone know the difference between Kadian 30 mg to Watson 3450. My Kadian was just changed to the Watson pill and I am now in withdrawal. What is the difference? ## Kadian is the Brand name for Morphine Sulfate Extented Release capsules, it is made by Actavis. Watson 3450 is a purple/white capsule and contains 30 mgs Morphine Sulfate Extented Release. The amount of medication in a Brand and a generic may vary. The Brands have exact medication whereas generics may vary. For example, if you have a generic that says 10 mgs, there can be 8 mgs-12 mgs of medication in it. ...

Sorry that you're so miserable, I do understand. There are actually two issues at play here…. The first is that Watson had some issues with customers being sensitive/allergic to the dyes in their products, so they have been changing them to remove the dyes and, while they claim that is the only change that's been made, many people are complaining that they are no longer effective at treating pain. The second issue is that due to concerns over overdose toxicity and the possibility of liver damage from long term use of high amounts, the FDA has requested that all manufacturers lower the amount of Ac... ...

My pharmacist that I have known for years due to chronic pain from cancer/severe spinal injuries and a totaled knee, told me last week that it is the DEA that has created the change in ALL pain meds. I have been on Watson Norco for 10 years and now I am in severe withdrawal with actavis buying out Watson. It is unbearable and my pharmacist said that people will DIE because of not being forewarned or informed ahead of time. This is all due to the people that use the drugs recreationally; and whatever else they do has ruined it for us real patients. We all know the DEA is like God and they don't even care about us real patients that have medical records, etc. I have been suffering for over a month now and my pain doc is on an extended vacation.
