Vicodin vs. generic

This might be a dumb question, but what is the dosage in brand name Vicodin. I just got a new prescription filled, and for the first time, my pharmacy filled it with brand name Vicodin rather than the generic hydrocodone/APAP. This was a new prescription for me, and I think it was for 5/500, but now I can't remember and I don't have a copy of the script. On my pill bottle, it doesn't have any dosage information, it just says "Vicodin." Is brand name Vicodin always 5/500, or is there a 7.5/500 version?

Re: Vicodin vs. generic

It's also quite common for the meds to come in slightly different strengths in different countries....Even when made by the same company....Just as an fyi.
