Hello, Travis! How are you?

Some of them contain Acetaminophen, because it augments the narcotic opiate and helps it work better, so it has a stronger effect and works better to relieve pain. However, the narcotic is still effective without it and it isn't necessary to prescribe one that contains Acetaminophen for everyone. It can be very rough on the liver, especially if someone is taking high amounts of it for a very long time.

As to why one works better for you than another, that is just due to your own body chemistry, not everything works well for everyone that tries it.

However, there is no 15mg of Hydrocodone available and it also isn't available without the Acetaminophen, unless your doctor specifically orders such for you and it's done by a compounding pharmacy.

Otherwise, it's only available with a maximum of 10mgs of the Hydrocodone and they all contain Acetaminophen.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Dr Young Says:

Possibly one of the reasons why your doctor has not prescribed your medication with Acetaminophen is because Acetaminophen is somewhat of a blood thinner in which if you have a brain injury they may not want to thin your blood to cause bleeding in you brain. I’m not sure if this is the exact reason why however it is most certainly possible.
