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.

Headache several days in row I've taken Tylenol n ibuprofen nun seems to help?

Status migrainous: This may be status migranous (if classic migraine features are present) and when it persists and escalates for days, it may require IV treatment in ER or urgent care with more potent medications (ex: Toradol) to get aborted. By now its unlikely triptan class abortive (ex:imitrex, zomig) would work. In the interim try naproxen as it is longer acting.
