    APAP = Tylenol

     

    They both have the same amount of hydrocodone (7.5mg) but the new one has more tylenol in it (750mg vs. 325mg)

     

    The second is a bit stronger.

    I would use the 7.5 325 less tylenol better on your liver..the 7.5 is the narcotic strenght and the 350 and 750 has amount of tylenol..doc just switched me to the lower dose cause norco is suppose to be liver friendly.

    the only difference is the tylenol amount.  basically they dont want her taking as many pills and increasing the tylenol amount reduces the suggested doses per day to not exceed over 4000 mg of tylenol. all in all there is no real difference of what is stronger.
