Yes: 10/325 refers to 10mg of hydrocodone (powerful & addicting narcotic) while 325mg refers to acetaminophen (brand = Tylenol). Maximum daily dose of acetaminophen is 3-4,000mg (spread throughout day) depending upon alcohol intake & health of your liver. Excess acetaminophen is dangerous to your liver. So take medication as directed but only if needed.
