My hips have arthritis in them.  I take 15mg meloxicam and I am feeling worse some days!  can I take ibuprofen or vicodin in same day?

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?

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

I have endometriosis and often takes 800mg or more ibuprofen to relieve pain, would it be better to continue take that or switch to vicodin?

I have endometriosis and often takes 800mg or more ibuprofen to relieve pain, would it be better to continue take that or switch to vicodin?

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

Ask your doctor : Each of the listed medications may cause side effects and there is a possibility for drug-drug interaction. Discuss this regime with your prescribing doctor as there may be extenuating circumstances that justify this regimen. Vicodin may lead to tolerance, dependance and addiction.
