A Watson 3202 Is a loratab 5/325. I am prescribed these as I'm am also prescribed loratab 10/325's... I also have a script for Percocet and Vicodin. Reason being is I race and have raced motocross my whole life and have had numerous injurys/broken bones. Vicodin is quite a bit stronger than my loratab 10/325's any day of the week. As for your norco question... Noro is just another brand that makes pills like say "Watson".
Yes the specks are stronger than vicoden if it has 325 on the bottle it's a norco/hydrocodone if it's 500 it's a vicoden the specks are just identification of the brand some states do still vicoden but some states are discontinuing vicoden because damage to the liver zohydro is the extended release form of hydrocodone like oxycotin is the extended for of oxycodone hopes this answers alot of questions and doubts on others.
Ok most of y'all don't know what your talking about. Norco is not a brand. Norco comes in all strengths from 5 ,7.5 and 10 measuring hydrocodone . A Norco is what all the pills have got changed to 325mgs of Tylenol. So when u look on your prescription and it says 325 mgs of Tylenol it's a Norco.
After reading everyone's answers I don't see how anyone can not be more confused then before logging into this forum. My personal opinion is it depends on the person as to which pill works better. I agree that when it comes to generic meds (more so with pain medication) some are better then others I don't know why maybe it's all in my head. I have rumytoid arthritis and fibromyalgia and I take the 3202 watson speckled and sometimes take the 7.5 Vic when I'm really bad have been for years after taking myself off OxyContin and like I said I think it really depends on the person as to the relief of pain received. I don't know if this helps or not but I hope it did at least a little. And sorry if I misspelled anything y'all.
I agree with brighti50--- I suffer from low back pain and migraines... Since the stop making Hydrocodone 5/500... I was given 5/325 (Watson mfg)... I normally get mine fill at Walgreens but about 6-8 months ago the Watson is the mfg that Walgreen uses for Hydrocodone--
Watson was purchased by Actavis, they have changed the ingredients in the hydrocodone--- much much weaker now
ang;((WATSON 3202 (Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone 325 mg / 5 mg)))) THIS IS the strength of the tablet you are asking about. you have to look at your Norco and see if it was the 5/325 or 10/325 to see which is stronger the small number is the true pain medication Hydrocodone and the 325 is the amount of Tylenol that is in it.
The Watson 3202 is not as strong as the Vicodin (or as it as listed on the bottle now as Hydrocodone/acetaminophen) 10-325. It is also now Actavis listed on the bottle as also comes from Walgreens but the pill itself is stamped Watson. I have taken this medication for years because of migranes and back injuries suffered in a couple severe auto accidents (not my fault) and also find that they are not as strong as they used to be. My husband has been prescribed Watson 3202 5-325 for his knee pain and I have taken a couple to see if there is a difference and yes to me there is. I had to take two to my one because his is only 5-325. Somehow he was able to pull up and compare all of the ingredients and there is a couple of differences in ingredients or one was not there at all.
I had been prescribed the higher dosage years ago but as been previously stated they took that off the market because of the Tylenol ingredient being too much. I had much less pain with that one but they do what they have to do. Anyway I am only going by experience.
It's all hydrocodone the white with pink specks àre 5mg hydrocodone and 325 tylonal it's manufacturer is Watson which is important because certain manufacturers are better than others. Mallincrodt is the best manufacturers by far so if u can get those get em. Norco is its own name and I'm pretty sure there 10 mg. Of hydrocodone with tylonal in it to. There is a capsule that is 10 mg. hydro with no cut no acetometaphen "tylonal" it's a dark red capsule and not sure of the brand name but generic it just sais 10mg hydrocodone.
