Since Norco and Vicodin are the same thing I don't know what you mean, it is hydrocodone 5 mg and acetaminophen 325 mg.

They are not the same thing. While they both contain 5 mg of hydrocodone, Norcos only contain 325 mg acetaminophen whereas Vicodin contain 500mg.

Vicodin is a drug name. Norco is a manufacture of hydrocodone (Vicodin) they all only contain 325mgs of Tylenol.

Norco is just a brand name. As is Lortab. All hydocodone IS Vicoden.

VICODIN IS HYDROCODONE(the generic name) and has 500mg of tylenol(or generic name of acetimenophen) in either a 5mg or 7.5mg or 10mg pill(means it contains 5mg,7.5mg or 10mg of the hydrocodone or vicodin whatever the strength of vicodin your dr prescribes and whatever u call it or know it as. And 500mg tylenol(acetimenophen the generic name)This is how it would look like on a prescription or label on your bottle... hydrocodone or hydro 5mg or 7.5mg or 10mg/500mg acetimen or acetimeniphen.Now this is only if you take one pill so two pills would double the doses of both medicines,,, The only difference when u are prescribed Norco or hydrocodone it has less tylenol in each pill which is 250mg. The reason norco is prescribed is to get less tylenol as it is very hard on your liver.

There was a lot of helpful information in there except for one error and that is that as far as I know at least, there are no 'vicodin', 'percocet', 'norco', (whatever silly name you want to give it) that has 250mg of acetimenophen. It's 325mg in the 'Norco' reduced tylenol forumlas, but as it was said before I believe that the 325mg forumlae are the only ones perscribed in the modern day. This goes for "percocet" (Oxycodone) as well. All Oxycodone/Hydrocodone and Tylenol combos that I have seen prescribed in recent months have been of the 325mg Acetaminophen variety as opposed to the older standard of 500mg, and the possibly 650 or 750 that were found in some versions of Hydrocodone and Oxycodone. Hopefully this was helpful.

Great answer and So true .. Dr.Joan ...

If it is a recent pill and not one you have had a while,it's 5/325.That's the only milligram they make now.They changed the formula so that it's less Tylenol.You can't get any higher than 325.So no matter what mg you have of the hydrocodone the Tylenol Will be.325mg.

BradleyVA 25 Oct 2015

I believe your answer is probably the best, there is really no need for the "Norco" distinction these days because all Hydro/Tylenol formulas are 325mg Acetaminophen these days.

How come my Vicodin say 5 300 then if there only 325?

I believe it is a Norco

sabrinab36 11 May 2016

pill imprint is of the hydrocodone family so that being said the correct answer is"NORCO"

Cas86 11 May 2016

I worked as a pharmacy technician for more than 2 years. Hydrocodone is a controlled pain releiver. Brand names are Norco, and Vicodin, among others. Norco, is typically accompanied with less acetaminophen (brand name Tylenol). Hydrocodone 5 milligrams accompanied by 325 milligrams of acetaminophen tends to be Norco which is also just a manufacturer, which has gained popularity by word of mouth due to common prescibing. 5 milligrams hydrocodone accompanied by 500 milligrams acetaminophen tends to be brand name Vicodin. Norco and Vicodin are just manufacturers of Hydrocodone. Your doctor may prescribe Norco, due to it having less acetaminophen in it (175 mg less) than Vicodin for a repeat prescription especially. Since acetaminophen is highly liver toxic.

Norco is stronger then just a Vicodin.

taraisms 18 Jun 2016

No. Norco is not stronger than Vicodin.

calken54 16 Dec 2017

Your wrong Norco is stronger than Vicodin. Percocet is stronger than Norco.
A 325/10 Norco is the same as a 325-7.5 Percocet. Fact.

Is this pill. A Norco

angel rodriguez 18 Jul 2017

They are the same thing narcotic is just a manufacturer name

JustMeDs 17 Aug 2017

Norco is the same as Vicodin. Vicodin, vicoden ES, Norco, Lorcet, Lortab, etc., are all brands of different doses of hydrocodone and acetaminophen combination.

The tablet your describing is Norco, 5mg hydrocodone and 325mg of Tylenol.

Branded drugs are more expensive because they’re newer, generally groundbreaking, and often for conditions that are difficult to treat. However, after a certain period of time, these same innovative medicines become a generic.

Your vicoden will most likely not be the brand unless you specifically request it from your Pharmacist. Your most likely getting one manufactured by a pharmaceutical company like Watson or mallinckrodt. This seems to be what's most misunderstood by people.
