Is 5-300 dosage the lowest
7 Mar 2013
Hello Produce and welcome to DC. The amount of narcotic is the "same". The only difference is the analgesic (Tylenol). One is 300 mg and the other is 500 mg. To me they are equal to each other because the amount of narcotic in both are equal.
The lowest dose of hydrocodone is 2.5 mg and ranges up to 10 mg. The non-narcotic analgesic (Tylenol) ranges from 300 mg up to 750 mg. Does that answer your question??? If I missed the mark perhaps you can add to your question or comment here.
Peace be with you in your world...

The only difference in them is the amount of Tylenol. vicodin 5/300 has 5mg of Hydrocodone and 300mg of Tylenol, and Vicodin 5/500 has 5mg of Hydrocodone and 500mg of Tylenol, so there is really very little difference if any. The hydrocodone is the narcotic pain killer and it is the same amount in both.
