HYDROCODONE/ACETAMIN 7.5-500MG TAB GENERIC For LORTAB VS. VICODIN

This answer was rated:

HYDROCODONE/ACETAMIN 7.5-500MG TAB GENERIC For LORTAB VS. VICODIN 7.5-500MG TAB GENERIC Which are one in the same. The only difference is the strength between the numbers 5-7.5-10 for the synthetic base ingredient HYDROCODONE. Now to my question. What is the non synthetic version for HYDROCODONE 7.5/500MG TAB/ GENERIC FOR LORTAB? I believe VICODIN Mabey that the same.

Hello

Mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

Mysticdoc :

Hydrocodone is the active ingredient of both lortab and vicodin.

Mysticdoc :

acetaminophen is the tylenol part.

Mysticdoc :

There is nothing called nonsynthetic version of hydrocodone.

Mysticdoc :

Now, Hydrocodone/acetaminophen is available as such and that can cost less since this will be generic.

Customer: I appreciate your detect approach on the subject however I guess my question wasabout a bit misguided.

I guess to put it quite to the point. What's the difference regardless of the strength between LORTAB and VICODIN? Is it the brand name even though the HYDROCORDONE strength is the same
or is there an additional ingredient that separates the two?
they are the same. There is no difference in strength between the same dose of lortab and vicodin.
Just 2 different brand names.
