Both medications are a combination of hydrocodone and acetaminophen.  They're just made by different manufacturers.  The ip 109 is 5 mg of hydrocodone and 325 mg of acetaminophen.  I haven't taken that particular brand but have taken the hydrocodone/acetaminophen mix and it is quite helpful for my pain.
