If: If a patient has leg pain and swelling, then it must be determined whether the cause is from the superficial veins or deep veins. This is done with an ultrasound (vascular) study.

No interaction: There isn't an interaction of aspirin and vicodin. Vicodin is a combination of a narcotic (hydrocodone) and tylenol (acetaminophen). If you're taking low dose aspirin for some reason, it shouldn't be a problem to take vicodin. But I'd question why you're taking aspirin. It's not a great pain medication. If you're using aspirin for pain regularly, it's worth consulting a doc who knows pain meds. ...Read more
