The pharmacist told me that they changed the formula?
Watson was purchased a couple of years ago by Actavis. When they took over Watson, they took out the yellow dye because some people were allergic to it. They are white now and still marked Watson 853 and have the same amount of hydrocodone and acetaminophen as when they were yellow. The only yellow ones that I am aware of are made by Qualitest and they have a cursive V on them. Every person is different and one may work better for you. I have been on and off the Watsons for a back injury for over 25 years and it works the best for me.
