    White oblong tablets with M357 on them contain 5 mg hydrocodone and 500 mg acetaminophen.  White oblong tablets with M358 on them contain 7.5 mg hydrocodone and 500 mg acetaminophen.  So, the M358 tablets are a little stronger.

      Hi Karen, Thank you for your help. So it's basically like taking 1 1/2 2357's? I have some cavites and can't aford a dentist yet. My doc gave me 2357 vicodins a while back and I remember I would take 2 of them for the pain because it said take 1 to 2 tabs every so many hrs as needed. I had 2358's but never took them. I am not one to take many pain killers. I have a bottle of oxycodone from 3 yrs ago still. Even though they expired my doc said it is ok to take them if I want, but they are stronger than vicodin. Thank you for your help again and have a great weekend.Smile
