Can a person take tylenol (acetaminophen) at the same time as vicodin just wondering if it is dangerous to take vicodin and tylenol (acetaminophen) at the same time

Clinically, one has to define if the pain results from the surgical site or adhesion or indigestion. So, get to know its causes first before treatment can be given. Hence, follow suggestions ...Read more

I took a daytime cold/flu medicine with 650mg acetaminophen 5-6 hours ago. I have a terrible tooth pain that wont go away. Is it safe to take a vicodin now?

Safe, but...: You need to stop self medicating and get to the 'root' of your problem (pun intended - you may need a root canal). No more than 3000mg of Acetaminophen in 24 hours. But instead of just throwing meds on the problem, see the dentist asap before you have a terrible facial cellulitis or other complications. ...Read more

I was diagnosed two years ago with sudden hearing loss. Maybe because of s virus. Maybe because I used Vicodin the night before it happened. My question is that after reading that both ibuprofen and acetaminophen can cause hearing loss, what is safe to ta

Tylenol (acetaminophen): Ibuprofen and other NSAID's like naproxen, and aspirin, should not be taken by people with partial hearing loss, depending on the cause. Some people with hearing loss and ringing in their ears (tinnitus) may find that it worsens and, if so, should never take take those drugs. Interesting that you asked, and mentioned acetaminophen too, and so I checked and it might also. More likely w/ NSAID's ...Read more

Diagnosed with occipital nueralga, prescribed norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) for pain, also taking clonazepam 1mg. Is it safe to take together or spaced apart?

Depends on tolerance: And on how many norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen). Starting doses of Clonazepam are in the 0.25- 0.5 mg range, so 1 mg is a hefty dose for this very potent drug. It takes Klonopin about 2 hours to peak, and hydrocodone peaks in an hour or less, so i would time the doses to not have the peaks overlap. There are effective drugs for neuropathic pain (like gabapentin, pregabilin, antidepressants) that don't get you "hooked.". ...Read more

I take Ativan 2 mg to help me sleep. Have been experiencing severe back pain and would like to take 10 mg of norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen).  Is it safe to take together?

Not safe.: Using Lorazepam that is ativan together with Hydrocodone that is norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience some impairment in thinking and judgment. You should tell your doctor about all other medications you use and get approval of your doctor. ...Read more

What iss generally considered better, vicodin with a higher amount of acetaminophen or less?

Low: Vicodin (hydrocodone) is a narcotoc (opioid)
which can cause constipation, nausea, impaired memory, and hypersensitivity to pain with long-term use. It has also been associated with hearing loss.
The tylenol (acetaminophen) (acetominophen) dose should be as low as possible. Try to stay below 2000mg per day of acetominophen. ...Read more

Could you be allergic to norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) and not vicodin?

Unlikely!: Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) and vicodin are different trade names for a combination of hydrocodone (a narcotic pain reliever) and Acetaminophen (tylenol). It is very unlikely that you would be allergic to one and not the other, as both Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) and vicodin contain the same active ingredients. However, if this is a question, consult an allergist who can test you for sensitivities to different triggers. ...Read more
