Vicodin and Advil (ibuprofen) : Sounds to me like you have taken this before. Did it work before? This could be a little much , dependingon how much you have taken. Again, talk with your doctor , as this may become a habit and may cause side effects between the 2 meds together.

Yes: Yes. The issue would be over sedation and if not taken at the same time then it should be of no issue.
