I too have recently begun getting the white 853. Is it possible that we are being prescribed a placebo?? They don't seem to work as well as the few others I have tried. They do make me very sleepy whereas the yellow Watson's don't. They actually give me some energy.
In the USA you cannot be prescribed a placebo or sold one without being told (hardly makes any sense to prescribe one that way) The purpose of these pills is not to give you energy, they are for pain. All they did was take the yellow food coloring out of them. The medication has not been changed.
Watson 853 has not helped me in 6 months especially the last 2. I live with chronic pain and I've taken myself off the meds to make sure the pain is real and after 5 back surgeries it's real! Sadly, but I think it's been tampered with as far as the mixology and needs outside monitoring. 6 a day hadn't touched my pain. FDA my personal opinion has changed the formula and my headaches are awful after taking them. Change medication if you can. Brenda N.
