The white, Elliptical / Oval pill m357 is a prescription drug containing 500mg of Acetaminophen and 5mg of Hydrocodone. The hydrocodone component is a narcotic, while acetaminophen is a mild painkiller. In combination, they belong to a class of drugs known as the opioid analgesics, which exert their action by blocking certain nerve cell receptors in the brain which changes the way the human body responds to pains.
What Are the Uses of M357 Pill?
Although hydrocodone is commonly prescribed to patients who are suffering from pain associated with injury, illness or recent surgical procedure, the addictive nature of the substance in any combination makes abuse very likely due to the feeling of euphoria or high which lasts several hours after the administration of m357. This ugly situation has increased the street value of M357 as well as other pharmaceutical products containing hydrocodone necessitating a wider call by public health professionals for tighter control and restriction over such molecules.
