Thanks for the input of previous answers. I preferred the white pill with red/pink flecks, but Walgreen's replacement of white ovals w/2172 marking is adequate. the flecked pill seemed to have more "pick me up" to it.

I just picked up my prescription at Walgreens for the exact same thing, hydrocodone/acetaminophen 5-325. For years the pill has always been white with pink speckles, said Watson on one side and 3202 on the other. I called Walgreens to confirm, they said they changed the look of the pill a few weeks ago (suggesting perhaps to get rid of the red dye) but it should be exactly the same. It is now a white oval, with 2172 on one side, scored on the other. I haven't taken them yet, but I'm hoping their effectiveness has not changed. I've read multiple forums regarding the strength of this drug in connection with which manufacturer it's made by. There IS a difference, I find Actavis mfg (or Watson brand) to be the most effective, other brands barely work for me. There can be multiple reasons for the quality of their effectiveness. Hopefully this change in pill form is the only change.

Goldie, they seem to me to be the same effectiveness as our old friend pink speckled ones. Thank you for calling the Walgreens pharmacist and getting such a thorough answer and taking the time to post it!

MNLADY, my pleasure, and thanks for the update on their effectiveness, good to hear (sigh of relief!)

This is generic Norco 5/325 put out by Actavis. I just picked up my monthly script from Walgreens and apparently these are replacements for the old white with pink flecks ones. I checked several different databases and this imprint is nowhere to be found yet.

Sorry DP; nothing listed in the database for any pill with these numbers it could be from a different country, anyway the best thing is to destroy it. none of my books or this database has anything like this listed. please just get rid of it. BETTER BEING SAFE THEN SORRY.
