It makes no difference.
Proproxyphene is the drug being prescribed. They will be equally as effective.

It is worth pointing out that on November 19, 2010 the US Food & Drug Administration requested that drugs containing propoxyphene be pulled off the market and banned in the United States because of a study linking propoxyphene to serious and sometimes fatal heart problems.
