    Sorry if this has been discussed before, but swim cannot find what he's looking for.

    Anyways, what's your favorite type of hydrocodone pill? Some might say they're all the same, if same strength, but swim disagrees, they all give him different type highs. Swim's list:

    Watson 540 (blue 10/500)
    Watson 853 (yellow 10/325)
    M367 (white 10/325)
    IP110 (white 10/325)
    V 36 01 (yellow 10/325)

    The watson 540 gives swim unexplainable euphoria, he takes just 2 (20mg total) and feels VERY high. and if he takes 2 of the V 36 01's he doesnt feel a single thing, he needs at least 50-60mg to feel even close as the watsons. why is that? they both have 10mg hydrocodone. anyways, what's your favorite brand?

    AKA a "school bus"

    unless you're getting them off the street, you don't get a choice, so I can't say if there is a difference between types as you get what you get from the pharmacy, which in my experience has almost always been V 36/01. Back in the days of lower dosage (7.5/750) or "footballs" as they are known, Watsons were king over Mallinkrodt.

    I like the pink V-3600, the "Watson" 853, I don't like any of the white "M" they just don't feel as strong as the "Watson" or the "V" hydro. Must be the fillers they use, inhibits the absorption of the drug??

    Hydrocodone is a much weaker buzz then oxycodone Aber, One 10 mg hydrocodone is equal to 5mg of oxycodone. Hydrocodone has a "dirtier" feel to it IMHO, and I seem to have a unpleasant come down from them.

    Around here you can only ever get the yellow V 36 01 10/325s or the white M367 10/325s. Much like the OP I find the Ms to be far better than those big ass yellow Vs. Never seen the blue watsons, but am kinda put off by the 500mg APAP rather than 325.

    I like the bananas! The blues are great but i cant find em anymore :-( the Watson 853s are pretty good too. I just hate the IPs they suck (but better than nothing!).

    My favorites are the Watson 10/500, ah yes the blues..however, they are now white, it was thought that the blue dye could potentially cause some sort of health defect I believe. They are my favorite. I really miss the green 10/650, haven't seen any of those around for a few years now.

    If you can, try the yellow Norcos. Personally I like them fine, I don't notice many differences between them another pills. They also only have 325mg of Apap so if you really want to, you can take more at once without having much worry for your liver.

    The yellow watson 853 or the V 3601 (10/325). I know a lot of people who say they don't get them as high as the blue watson 10s (watson 540) but I don't agree. I love the yellow 10s (generic Norcos). The highest dose of hydrocodone and the lowest does of acetaminophen. How can that be a bad thing?

    I know a lot of people I've met say they would rather have the 7.5s, (watson 385) over the yellow 10s. They say those get them higher. I don't get that at all.

    I don't get it either, but I'm testament to that weird reaction. I have 7.5/325 and its great. Always gives me something and I know how to work with them. One day a friend gave me 3 10/325 and I was delighted. popped em...Nothing. 1 hour...2 hours...4 hours...nothing. then late at night I got really nauseous and lightheaded. Needless to say, unless I'm guaranteed a good experience, I wont opt for the 10/325 norcos. Even though, theoretically, they're the best bet.

    Weird, dude. I don't understand that. People swear by those 7.5s! they are by far the most popular where I live. 10s aren't rare or anything but I guess they are compared to the 7s. White watson 385. That's the biggest seller 'round here. I know we can't talk price but Christ, man, those things go for a good chunk of my. And they don't do that much! I need at least 30 mg to get a good high and I don't even have a habit right now! My mom had those yellow 10s and I just got out of jail and man, I ate a few of those and I had a beautiful high.

    I'm just of the opinon that the 10s are the best. Yellow 10s. But back in Louisiana, we had the generic Vicodin, the 10/650s. Up here, they don't do the Vicodin, it's Lortab. I've gotten weird reactions from people when I'd say Vicodin, so now I'm used to saying Lortab or norco. It's weird how different areas have different hydrocodone pills.

    Moving Pictures added 16 Minutes and 17 Seconds later...

    Oh, wow, I didn't know they took the blues off the market. I haven't done Lortab in a while, but when I was buying them heavy back in '11, the blue 540s were the big thing. Everyone had them and loved them. I like 'em but I prefer the yellow 10/325 genric Norcos. They just feel cleaner without all the APAP. But yeah, I haven't seen the new 540s. Maybe next time I buy some I'll see it.

    SUch an old threat but here goes. My fiance brought some home from the doc. with them 853's.white oblong. She told me she hasn't felt anything from it in over an hour. So I tried 1. hmmm.. I didn't either. so i tried 2. then 4 more..She's right. there has to be an antagonist in these..After about 6 hours I gave her 1 of my 853's from the V.A. and she felt is within about 20 minutes. Mine just worked fine. but her's did not..I also noticed the ones from the VA was slightly diff. then her's they were more rounded her's was oval, same as mine. but mine are kinda footballish shaped. hers are straight like a tylenol.. different batch? Beats me. But something definitely is wrong here. She got hers from Walgreen's.

    I personally don't use hydrocodone (Norco / Lortab) for recreational use, instead I use them for a back injury I got in a bad car accident.. Out of all the Norco I've taken since early 2014, here's my list of best to WORST.

    Best::
    Watson 5/325 (brand I used to get before pharmacy switched vendors)
    Watson 7.5 /500 (tried this in 2013 when I injured my foot)
    Qualitest 5/325 (taking now)

    Other:
    Watson Lorcet 10.6.6 (contains hydrocodone) - NOT for first time users! Was prescribed 18 of these when I broke a tooth back in 2012.. Learned the hard way that these are not for the first time opiate user! The first time I used even a SMALL amount (such as a half of a half) of a Lorcet 10.6 pill, it slowed my breathing. However, the first time I took a whole Lorcet 10.6.6, I went to sleep in the middle of my living room floor for several hours and didn't feel right for about 12 hours.. Never again!


    Absolute dog crap::

    Mallinckrodt 5/325 . Do NOT try these.. They SUCK!!

    Qualitest (in my opinion) is superior to all others...

    853 white pills sucked. M367 were a ton better. The IP110 seemed alright. Used to get the yellow V 3601 and they were good. M367,V3601- good. IP110-alright. White853- not good.
