No: Hydrocodone is a narcotic analgesic which blunts pain perception. Ibuprofen is an antiinflammatory which may actually help decrease the cause of pain as well as having some analgesic (pain relieving) properties.

Yes! Just not 2 much: Hydrocodone is an opioid or narcotic pain killer that is effective but highly addictive. Ibuprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that can relieve pain, fever & inflammation. The two can be used together (and sometimes are actually combined into the same drug). Beware that hydrocodone, like all other narcotics, can constipate while nsaids can irritate stomach & kidneys.
