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

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

Please help, how much ibuprofen is equivalent to vicodin?

Please help, how much ibuprofen is equivalent to vicodin?

Different drugs: There is no equivalent relationship. One is a narcotic that depletes the neurotransmitters while it works in your body and the other is a non steroidal anti inflammatory that has a side effect of pain relief. Find the cause of your pain and treat that instead of treating the symptom of pain and you will get better and not need the meds. ...Read more
