The acetaminophen amount is the second number.
There is less tylenol in the 10/350, however I don't think its 350, it should be 325. They will no longer be making combo meds with more then 325 mg of tylenol in them. Its a new FDA reg because of the liver toxicity of tylenol.
Lorcet, Vicodin and Norco (among a few others) are what is known as "combination analgesics". This is because they contain more than one medication. When you see a strength of a drug written with a slash between them, it means there are two drugs. In this case, the first number, 10, refers to 10mg of hydrocodone, the opioid (or narcotic) component of the drug. The second number refers to the amount of acetaminophen (otherwise known as Tylenol). Adding this acetaminophen boosts the pain relieving properties of either drug on its own. So the difference, in your question, refers to a difference of 300mg of acetaminophen.
