They are one in the same. I tend to call them "Vic Es's" but the ES part means 'extra strength'. You basically get 7.5 mg of the Hydrocodone & 750 Tylenol (as opposed to regular Vicodin which equals 5mg Hydrocodone & 500mg Tylenol.
The 750's are worse for your liver & when I was on Es's, my doc did liver function tests & my liver was being affected - he then switched me to Fentanyl patches. (Currently not on any pain meds).
There is also Vicodin HP - I've never been prescribed this but it has 10mg Hydrocodone & 660mg Tylenol, in my opinion, safer than the Es's (due to less Tylenol).
