Anyone ever noticed if you snap a pain pill in half and shine your phones flash light on it you’ll see tiny crystal like specs ?
I believe them to be timed-released.
This happens to me only when I add the Vicodin to my "to go" container. It's probably an indicator of Vicodin that activates when mixed with Tylenol or other meds so the V can't be hidden with similar looking medication
Hydros with the specks are time based and go off your pain ... these are usually for people who have long term pain or just had surgery
That's because that's is the compound that the real drug company
I find that mostly on the non generic versions, usually get them in the hospital.
Creech,,, Just as Kasm... just said there are so many company and strengths and brands they come in almost all colors,One thing i always say is if it is a different color than normal check with the pharmacy to make sure ... here is a short copy of past to explain it a bit more... Chuck 1957 This last prescription I got were white tablets with little green specs - one side has the letter V and the other side has 3594. I have only taken solid white tablets in the past for Hydrocodone Pills ## The one's marked V 3594 are simply made by a different manufacturer than what most people are used to seeing. Oblong white pills definitely seem to be the most commonly prescribed versions, while there are yellow, blue, pink, orange and green tablets as well. I've also seen the white ones with red specs. Keep in mind though that these colors and/or shapes are always subject to change depending upon the discretion of the manufacturer. I hope this helps!
They do, most of them should. I know I've seen then that some don't seem to have them, but its supposed to be there.
