Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Hydrocodone is normally mixed with acetaminophen (also known as paracetamol). The 10 that you see is the hydrocodone and 500mg is acetminophen.
Similarly in the 10/650 formulation, the first 10 represents the hydrocodone and the 650 mg is acetaminophen.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
