The difference between the 2 types of pain medication is the Watson 853 has 175 mg less acetaminophen than the Blue Watson LORTAB. The yellow or white Watson 853 is 10 mg of hydrocodone/ 325 mg of acetaminophen. They are used for patients who have renal impairment or have some reason to reduce the acetaminophen, such as also taking another medication with acetaminophen already in it. Hope this has helped you out.
