What Is The Difference Betwwen Vicoden With The Numbers M357 And Ones With M358?

My bottle says HYDROC/APAP 7.5/500 TAB My doc gave me M357 last time but this time I have M358 Is that a higher strength or is it like batch numbers?

Thanks for any help.

Answer

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.

Remember, too, that if you have a question like this about a medication that you've been prescribed that your pharmacist is a great resource. I call my pharmacist several times a year with questions about medications since it's easier and often faster than calling my doctor.
