It's really a matter of how the person handles the medication and reacts to it. Personally, I believe the vicoprofen works better.

Good luck to you,

The vicoprofen has 7.5mg of hydrocodone, whereas the vicodin only has 5, so the vicoprofin would be stronger. The first number in vicodin, percocet, etc is the amount of narcotic in the pill, the second number is the amount of tylenol (or apap which stands for acetaminophen) thats in the pill
