Why are the M367 not as strong?

I can tell you why. It is only after many hours of researching the manufacturing guidelines set forth by a department within the FDA that I discovered this. Yes, the generic must contain the active ingredient. HOWEVER, guidelines for the GENERIC DRUGS being MANUFACTURED are allowed by law to HAVE at minimum ONLY 85% (and up to 105%) OF the actual ACTIVE ingredient, which in this case is hydrocodone. That is why some generic brands are less effective.
Pill with imprint M367 is White, Capsule-shape and has been identified as Acetaminophen and hydrocodone bitartrate 325 mg / 10 mg. It is supplied by Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals. Every pill with that formulation should have the same active ingredients.
