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

Vicodin
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!

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

Yes

Advil
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

Doctor have me vicodin and ibuprofen. Should I take them together?

No problem

Vicodin
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.

Is it safe to take Robaxin 500mg 2x a day, Trazodone 50mg, Zoloft 50 mg, Ibuprofen 800 4x a day, and Vicodin 5/500mg every 8-10 hrs together?

Ask your doctor

Open-uri20130821-19022-lcihnf
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. Ibuprofen 4 x a day may lead to serious side effects.

Dr. Alvin Stein answered:

Please help, how much ibuprofen is equivalent to vicodin?

Different drugs

Advil
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
