Yes they sure are. I have a friend that is a veteran and he gets his sent to him each month from the VA. Always the old yellow ones. When I am prescribed mine, I only get the white ones anymore. But yes, the yellow ones are being made and being dispersed to veterans, at least.
I believe the correct answer is no. Watson yellow Norco tablets are no longer made and have not been made for many years. Watson bought Actavis November 2012 and droped the Watson name. Around the same time they removed the yellow dye but insist that the active ingrediants were not changed. Actavis has only supplied white tablets since around 2012/13.
Yellow tablets were and still are supplied by Par Pharmaceuticals, an Endo Company.
I believe that today there are seven companies supplying 'Hydrocodone Bitartrate/Acetaminophen 10mg-325mg Tablets'. Six supply an oval white tablet and 'Par' supply the yellow one.
If you have been getting yellow ones after around January 2013 then they must be Par Pharmaceuticals.
