Watson Pills Containing Hydrocodone

What sort of medication is Hydrocodone?

Hydrocodone Bitartrate belongs to narcotic pain relievers (opioids). Analgetic properties of Hydrocodone are observed due to its ability to bind to opioid receptors in the brain and spinal cord. It has a rather high potential for abuse, being able to cause a moderate physical, or a high psychological dependence if misused. So, it is less commonly available in pure form. Usually, the combination of Hydrocodone and Acetaminophen is administered to manage moderate to severe pain.

In the USA, pure Hydrocodone is a Schedule II drug. But when combined with Acetaminophen, like in Vicodin, etc, the compound becomes a Schedule III drug. Both are Rx Class medications.

Brand-name medications that contain Hydrocodone as an active ingredient include Lortab, Norco and Vicodin. Among pills manufactured by Watson Pharmaceuticals, we find different combinations of Hydrocodone and Acetaminophen, which can be listed as Watson generic versions for the popular brands.

In Watson Acetaminophen/Hydrocodone combinations, Hydrocodone is found in dosages of:

  • 5mg (in Watson 349 and Watson 3202 pills)
  • 7.5mg (in Watson 385, Watson 387, Watson 502 and Watson 3203 pills) and
  • 10mg (in Watson 503, Watson 540, Watson 853 and Watson 3228).
