The bottle says 5/325mg on both bottles.
This question has also been asked and answered here: Vicodin vs Percocet: What's the difference?
Vicodin and Percocet each contain 2 drugs. You have listed the acetaminophen component but not the opioid component. To give you an answer, I would need to know how much hydrocodone is in the Vicodin (are they 5/325 or 10/325?) and how much oxycodone is in each Percocet (are they 2.5/325, 5/325 or 10/325?) Since there are two components to the drug, we need to know both. On the bottle you should see the name of the drug and a two numbers with a slash between (like 5/325) I have to know that before giving you an answer.
I have the same issues... My problems all started after a severe auto accident. Causing head injury back injury and neck... including ligament damage and fibromyalgia. I felt as if I was going crazy. But I couldn't communicate properly due to my head injury. My legs felt as if they were going to explode with the overwhelming pressure and pain! Now I have severe fibro!!! Any how I've been on pain meds reluctantly sincere 2006. Increasingly stronger dosage over the years. Recently changing from Norco 10-325 2 every 4 hrs. To percocet 10-325 1 every 4 hrs. It seems like they are the same dosage... They take the edge off... but I'm still in pain which leaves unable to live life "normally". Of course with the back issues I am restricted but I'm sure you get that. Any how... I was wondering myself the dosage difference and if you've found the answer...
Also please research Fibromyalgia. ..So many people that have had traumatic injuries end up with fibromyalgia wide spread pain.
Take care be well!!!
