Is there on over-the-counter pill I can take that's similar to hydrocodone-ibuprofen?

Yes and no: This combination includes a narcotic. You cannot get a narcotic over-the-counter. Better still you maythere red the narcotic.

Would not advise thawould not advise that combination: that combination is not something I would advise. The Advil and aleve (naproxen). at your age will put you at risk for intestinal bleeding, hypertension and decreased kidney function. I would discuss with your physician if you could get off both narcotics, and find another way to treat. You haven't told us what diagnosis you're using these medications for
