As far as I know Watson is still manufacturing the yellow Norco 10/325 tablets.  Many pharmacies have switched to the white generic hydrocodone tablets manufactured by Mallinckrodt because they are cheaper.  It would be worth asking your pharmacy if they will order the brand name by Watson for you.  If not, try calling other pharmacies to see if they carry it or would order it.  You might have to ask your doctor to indicate on your prescription that it must be filled only with the brand name drug – no generic substitutions.  Of course, depending on your insurance, it may cost you more.
