Norco/hydrocodone, Qualitest brand name generic.
I've seen a few internet posts disparaging the Qualitest brand of hydrocodone w/APAP, saying that it doesn't work and is 'like taking nothing -- would rather have Watson brand'. Well, on this prescription I got the Qualitest version for the first time. I'm pleased with it, seems rather strong actually. It took a bit longer to 'kick in' (like an hour) than the other brands, but when it did I certainly got all 4 barrels of it! I think that's the difference between brands of the same medicine: how long it takes to start working. Some brands 'melt in your mouth' & begin working immediately. But there's a drawback to that: the effect will likewise leave fast. Too fast, like 30 minutes. I much prefer the harder pills (such as Qualitest brand) which take a while to dissolve, but then kick-in suddenly an hour later and *last* for 4-6 hours. I'm pleased with the 'power' of Qualitest brand hydrocodone/APAP -- am not worried about it's slower onset. Because power is what''s needed in this type of medicine.

Qualitest is one of the better generic forms of Norco--but it is not nearly as strong as the Watson generic brand. Each time I go to the pharmacy, they give me something different--and there can be a 40% variation between the amount of active ingredients between one generic and another generic. I reported a discrepancy like this to the FDA and they responded that a 20% variance (either more or less) of the active ingredient from the name brand drug is completely legal.

Right now is take any brand cause FDA causing a lot of problems in Michigan. No drug store has any cause FDA said label had to changed, so they had to send back what they had and now waiting for suppliers to ship them to the store. I would of thought FDA would of thought this out better. I have a disease and need my Meds but what I do
