Hello freddyr and welcome to DC. The "10" is the amount of narcotic and the "325" is the amount of analgesic. I hope that answers your question... if not please give more detail in your question which you can edit, so to speak, to add more information.
For instance, what were you changed from??? Are you wondering if you are on the same type of med as before but not sure? Just an fyi for you... when posting a question it is helpful to post it as "conversational" so that the same people can respond to you in an interactive way. Posting as "direct" limits that interaction to "one".
Be well, be safe and hope you are able to manage your symptoms on this dose.
Norco is hydrocodone (an opioid pain reliever) and acetaminophen ( a non opioid pain reliever) the 10 refers to 10mg of the hydrocodone and the 325 refers to 325mg of acetaminophen. Vicodin is also a "combination" medication meaning it is a combination of hydrocodone and acetaminophen. You were probably on Vicodin 5/500 which would have been 5mg hydrocodone and 500mg acetaminophen so your Dr increased the opioid dose and decreased the acetaminophen dose. It should help your pain much better.

I was prescribed Norco 10/325 after two failed surgeries. Years later, Norco is no longer effective?
