More on the M365 pill

M365 is a white oblong scored pill with “m365” indexed on one side. This is also known as Vicodin which has a mixture of acetaminophen (325mg) and hydrocodone bitartrate (5mg). This medication is used for pain, and is prescription only.

Both hydrocodone and acetaminophen are pain relievers. But whereas hydrocodone is an opioid, acetaminophen is an analgesic. Opioids fall under the umbrella term "analgesic," although not all analgesics are opioids. Opioids are a class of very strong pain relievers, and therefore tend to be used for cases of moderate to severe pain.

Recently, deaths related to opioid abuse have risen in the United States. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2015 roughly two-thirds of the 52,000 overdose deaths in America involved opioids. From 2002 to 2012, the rate at which a user took a prescription pill more powerful than morphine doubled.
