Took 3 ibuprofins today (9am, 2pm, 7pm). Is it safe to take norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) before I sleep. My jaw really hurts due to wisdom teeth extractions.

Took 3 ibuprofins today (9am, 2pm, 7pm).  Is it safe to take norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) before I sleep.  My jaw really hurts due to wisdom teeth extractions.

take as directed: Ibuprofen tablets are usually 200 mg — and you should check that. A typical dose is 200, 400, or 600 mg at one time, and I can not tell from your question whether you took "3 ibuprofins" each time, or "1" each time. In any case, Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) should not be a problem in addition to the ibuprofen, if it was prescribed by your dentist / oral surgeon. Ice helps too! ...Read more
