Ihave A Question About My Medication

  1. I Have 2 Types Of Medications In One Pill Bottle One Is Naproxen And The Other Is Hydrocodone (lortab) But I'm Not Sure Which Is Which. One Is White Oval Shaped And Has A Line Going Up And Down On One Side And M357 On The Other Side. If I Can Figure Out Which One This One Is Then I'll Know What The Other Is So I Could Seperate Them.

    the white one should be a hydrocodone . Is the other blue, if it is that is your naproxen.

    The one with the M357 should be hydrocodone.

    jdawg,

    I was just prescribed Lortab after my recent root canal. Worked great for me, although made me very loopy. The pills were identical to the one you described with the M357 on the side and the line down the other side.

    I just took it for the first day when the pain was really bad, and then switched to regular otc pain killer after that.

    Hopefully, your tooth is hurting because you've had dental work done. However, if the pain is being caused by an abscess or something else that hasn't been treated, you need to go to the dentist asap... before you run out of hydrocodone.

    I would also say to check with your local pharmacy considering the pills and color change frequently. If you aren't sure, dont take them. Check with your Doc or pharmacy.

    My Naproxen is a pinkish color. It has MOVA printed on one side and 500 M50 on the other side.
