Yes: As long as the same doctor prescribed them at the same time and at prescribed doses. Both can make you drowsy so start with caution.

Vicoprofen (hydrocodone and ibuprofen) / Suboxone / flexeril question?

I am guessing: I am guessing about your question. No, it is not safe to mix together the three medications you mentioned. If you take Suboxone while vicoprofen (hydrocodone and ibuprofen) is in your system, you could go into immediate opiate withdrawal symptoms. Flexaril is related to the tricyclic antidepressants and is used as a muscle relaxant. Too much could cause sedation and even death.

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.
