As far as narcotic strenth there both the same 10mg hydrocodone,but 853 only has 325mg tylonol in it where as 540 has 500mg. Personally I would take the 853's because tylonol is hell on your liver & you can supplement it with ibuprofin which I know for a fact you can take 800mg(I USALLY TAKE 1000) it just depends on what your stomach can tolerate. Some people are really bothered by it,but it won't tear up your liver like tylonol.
