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.
