I take this 2 in am 2 at night for chronic joint pain & it always works. Last month I had my Rx,. filled came home took it & it did nothing. I ended up taking 4 pillls which would've been 2000mg of the Tylenol still did nothing, didn't even take away my headache. This imprint is 1p 111. I had some of my old ones left which are 35 92 so the next day i took 2 of them & they worked as usual. A friend of mine had the same experiencee. I went to my pharmacist & told him about this & asked him if he could order the ones i had been getting. He told me no, this is what they're getting now & assured me this was the same thing. I am aware of all the counterfeiting that's going on alll over the world. Does anyone have any advice or experienced the same thing? I would like to get to the botttom of this! Now i am stuck with a whole bottle of pills that don't work & i don't know what's in them?
The 1p 111 are supposed to be generic for hydrocodone 5/500mg. I know when I used to take hydrocodone, I took Vicoden ES, I never did think the generics worked as good as the name brand! I used to just pay more to get the brand name. If your insurance allows you to buy the brand name at a higher copay you might ask the Dr to write or sign "dispense as written only" so you can get the brand name. I now take Roxicodone for breakthrough pain and I have noticed with them that some generics work better than others.
I have had this experience also. I used to use Walgreens for all my scripts, but have changed to CVS because they will order whatever brand you want to use.They gave me a different Xanax one month that did absolutely nothing so I talked to the phamatist & he said they got 2 kinds, but wuld order what one I wanted. Good info to know if your have a CVS near you...
