Vicodin is just a brand name for hydrocodone/APAP (and Vicoprofen being the same thing, manufactured by the same manufacturer, except instead of the combination of hydrocodone being with acetaminophen, it's combined with ibuprofen) , just as Lortab is a name brand for the same exact thing (and Lortab also has its own non-acetaminophen hydrocodone mixture, Lortab ASA, except is mixed with an amount of aspirin instead of the ibuprofen in Vicoprofen, the "ASA" standing for the aspirin in the compound, similar to how the "APAP"stands for acetaminophen in all prescription medications that have any amount of acetaminophen in the medication, like oxycodone/APAP [best known by its name brand version, Percocet], codeine/APAP [brand name of Tylenol 3, though back when I had a prescription for it, it was called Tylenol 2, I think it's just a strength difference, since apparently there's Tylenol 4 now], codeine/ guaifenesin syrup [namebrand Robitussin AC. DAC with pseudoephedrine, generic name Cheratussin AC, DAC with pseudoephedrine], hydrocodone/APAP syrup, oxycodone/APAP syrup [don't know any name brands for those, only know they exist due to tonsilitis that nearly killed me that made my throat swell shut, had to be prescribed liquid version of my regular, at the time, pain medication, which was 2-10/500mg hydrocodone/APAP every 4 hours], and the list goes on). Obviously, you can have one specific drug with many different brand names. I think much of the difference with the pain medications and the name brands of the same things is the mg of acetaminophen in each pill. I think they needed something different from the existing name brand medication in order to get a patent on their version. Sorry for giving you probably entirely much more information than you care to know, though LOL!

There always has been a tylenol 4, and you are correct, The higher the number the more codeine in the pill. 2 has 15 mg, 3 has 30 and 4 has 60

Funny, because way back when I was prescribed it, they would prescribe you either T2s, and the next step up from that was 5mg hydrocodone. Perhaps it was just the doctors I saw in that time period?
