Not ibuprofen: You can take vicodin if that is prescribed to you for the pain as the Acetaminophen will not cause any issues related to the meloxicam. However, do not take Ibuprofen with our as they are both nsaids and can increase the side effects you may have, including GI upset and ulcers. If the current regimen is not helping, discuss with your physician other options like injections. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Can i take vicodin 5/500 n ibuprofen 800  together?

Yes: I know this online forum is here to answer questions but i think it's also imperative that patients tell their physicians everything they're taking. And buy all their medications from same pharmacy so pharmacist can look for interactions too (doc should do so too). And in this day & age, patients have same access to drug interaction database as physicians. Yes, vicodin & Ibuprofen can be taken tog. ...Read more

Continue ibuprofen: as Vicodin is an addictive narcotic which may develop tolerance and require more and more for pain relief. It is also now a schedule 2 drug which prohibits refills. You can take 800mg of ibuprofen every 8 hours if needed and the prescription strength is not scheduled and may be refilled for up to 1 year. ...Read more

Potentially: You must call your doctor to confirm. Vicodin and ibuprofen can be taken together if the individual is on no other medications, has no other health problems, and was prescribed a specific dosing regiment by a treating doctor. ...Read more

No problem: You may want to stagger them to benefit from the effects, but there is no problem taking them together. Vicodin has Acetaminophen in it along with hydrocodone. Each of these medications, and ibuprofen, have differen mechanisms of action and work in different places, so you shouldnt have any problem taking them together. ...Read more

Ibuprofen 4 x a day may lead to serious side effects. ...Read more
