When your doctor gave you this prescription he/she should have explained this to you. Call the pharmacy where you had your prescription filled and they will be able to tell you. The only thing I know is the apap is caffeine which counteracts the sedation effect of the vicodin. Call the pharmacy before it closes!

The 7.5 is the amount of hydrocodone, ie 5 or 10, or 7.5. The /500 part is the Apap or Acetominiphen ... NOT caffeine. So, in answer to your question, 7.5 is stronger than 5, 10 stronger than both. The important thing to know is the Apap (acetominphen) can and does harm your liver. Keep the apap under 4000 mg daily.
