    The first figure refers to the amount of narcotic pain reliever in the drug; the second to the amount of acetaminophen in it. Acetaminophen is there because it enhances the pain relieving qualities of the narcotic drug.

     

    The first drug you mentioned may have less acetaminophen in it but it has double the amount of hydrocodone; it is the stronger drug. Be careful never to take more than 4,000 mgs of acetaminophen a day; above that point it could damage your liver.
