What is a white pill with 126 on one side and blank on the other side

Not Medical Advice: White, capsule-shape pill with imprint 126 has been identified as Acetaminophen and hydrocodone bitartrate 325 mg / 5 mg.

Hydrocodone belongs to the drug class called narcotic pain relievers. While acetaminophen is a less potent pain reliever that increases the effects of hydrocodone. The combination of these two drugs is used to treat moderate to severe pain.

In medical buzz, the Food and Drug Administration has approved a new more powerful version of the opioid painkiller that some critics say is dangerous. Zohydro, which was developed by San Diego based Zogenix Inc. (NASDAQ: ZGNX), will be the first pure hydrocodone painkiller sold in the U.S. Find out more here.
