A 10mg Vicodin is a 10mg Vicodin (as far as the 10mg of hydrocodone). Some of the preparations may have different combinations of acetaminophen in them but it really doesnt matter much as far as what you take. It just depends on whether or not a lower or higher acetaminophen dose works better for you. Keep in mind that acetaminophen in high doses can be toxic to your liver and you should take no more than 4000mg total daily dose (3000mg if you consume alcohol at all) so if you will be taking frequently or on a long term basis you might want to choose a preparation with a lower mg of acetaminophen. Unfortunately, in the US, hydrocodone is not available without being in a combo with acetaminophen so you are dose limited by the acetaminophen.
