Does anyone know what the difference is between hydrocodone and codeine? Also, if my doctor said that the amount of codeine in tylenol #3 was comparable to the amount of codeine in vicodin- did she make a mistake. If there is no codeine in vicodin then how could it be comparable?
There is a difference between tylenol #3(with codeine) and vicodin(which contains hydrocodone). They are comparable in strength so I think that is what your doctor meant by they are the same. They are the same in strength. I get way too drowsy on tylenol #3 but I don't have the same side effect with vicodin but everyone's body reacts differently.
