Maybe you should ask the phamacist.  But it could be extra strength Vicodin.  Are they both white oblong and one is larger than the other?  I think you can go to webmd and they have a pill ID section.  Good luck

they are both stronger then vicoden which is hydrocodone.  the 5-325 means 5mg of oxycodone and the 325 is tylonal.  same for the 7.5, it means 7.5 mg of oxycodone, and 500 mg tylonal
