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.
