I had to have my prescription filled @ Walmart this time. These tablets are white. Have noticed more side-effects Talked to their pharmacist - he told me they changed the color - duh? "Norco 539" is imprinted. Can someone please validate? Thank you
There is no medicine difference between the yellow and the white Norco. Color and imprint only. If the white ones you're getting aren't doing the same job as the yellow ones, which they should be because they're exactly the same besides color and imprint, I would tell my doctor first. After you talk with your doctor, try a different pharmacy. They'll still be white. They stopped making the yellow ones. But maybe you got old pills or they weren't stored in proper environment. Very rare, but it can happen. I wish the best of luck to you and I hope I could help you in one way or another.
My advice to anyone wanting a stronger norco 10/325 is that they purchase the name brand norco manufactured by Allergan it is an off white in color wit the imprint 539. While the manufacturer Watson makes a yellow also with the same imprint 539 that is not as effective as the original manufacturer of norco, Allergan is by far the strongest 10/325 mg. Out there. How do I know this is that I have suffered from moderate to chronic pain for thirty years now. I am one of the first to use norco I always thought cheaper was better. But up to about a year ago the generic brands wasn't cutting it I found myself doublin up on doses, then I decided to try the original name brand Norco by Allergan. It cost a bit more but it is worth it. Cheaper is not better.
