M P/T Pill

One more Mylan's M-indexed pill, this time it is M P/T pill. Like Mylan's M T7 pill, M P/T pill contains tramadol hydrochloride, but there is a difference between them. In M P/T pills, tramadol is combined with acetaminophen, which is a milder analgetic free of any narcotic-like effects. However, acetaminophen increases pain relieving effects of tramadol in M P/T pills.

Each M P/T pill contains 37.5 mg tramadol hcl and 325 mg acetaminophen. The medication is also available under various brand names that include Ultracet and Tramacet.

DESCRIPTION: Little round yellow to beige pill, one side is debossed with "M", the other side has "P/T" index on it.

M360 Pill

M360 pill is a generic Lortab (Norco, Vicodin) preparation which is even stronger than our previously examined Mallinckrodt's M359 pill. Each M360 pill contains 7.5mg hydrocodone bitartrate together with 750mg acetaminophen.

Like in any Lortab version, in M360 pills, acetaminophen acts as an itensifier of analgetic effects of hydrocodone. But you should remember that taking more than 1000 mg acetaminophen at a time may be harmful for the liver. Being especially reach in acetaminophen, M360 pills must be taken no sooner than two hours one after one, not more than five to six pills during the day.

You may compare WATSON 387 pill to M360 pill, too, as both of them are actually the same medicine made by different manufacturers.
