This medicine is a combination of a narcotic and acetaminophen used to relieve moderate to severe pain. . Narcotic pain-relievers work by binding to opioid receptors in the brain and spinal cord, and acetaminophen decreases the formation of prostaglandins, therefore reducing pain.
It's about half way mark from the strongest pill available. Medication effects everyone differently. Some may not help someone, while that same medication may knock someone out and have them sleep a few hours. The strongest one is a 10mg/660.
The one you have listed though is for moderate to severe pain.
