Can antibiotics increase the severity or chance of you having an allergic reaction to another medication? (vicoprofen) specifically.

Can antibiotics increase the severity or chance of you having an allergic reaction to another medication? (vicoprofen) specifically.

No: No, not really. There are many different types of antibiotics and being allergic to one isn't going to make you allergic to another antibiotic. However, if they're within the same class, there is a chance that you could have an allergic reaction to both of them. That's why doctors avoid using an antibiotic from the same class when you've had an allergic reaction to one of the drugs in that class. ...Read more

Vicoprofen (hydrocodone and ibuprofen) helps my pain but makes me itch any similar meds?

Vicoprofen (hydrocodone and ibuprofen) helps my pain but makes me itch any similar meds?

Narcotics/itching: There are two ways to deal with this. One is to change to a different pain medication, and the other is to treat the side effects. If you will only be on vicoprofen for a short while (i.E postoperatively), you might try a small dose of an antihistamine like benadryl (diphenhydramine). This will make you sleepy, so watch out for that, but it should help. Otherwise, try an oxycodone pain medicine. ...Read more

Can you tell me if I could take extra ibuprofen with vicoprofen, (hydrocodone and ibuprofen) this tooth really hurts.?

Toothache: If these meds are not helping, you apparantly have an advanced infection. Antibiotics will probably help short-term, but you need to see a dentist asap to have the tooth treated.
Taking pain meds without having the tooth treated will only allow the infection to worsten, making it harder to alleviate the pain. ...Read more

Doctors have all been rude anymore and will not prescribe me Vicoprofen (hydrocodone and ibuprofen) I've taken many years for my Lupus and Fibromyalgia in TX, what can I do?

Hydrocodone: Is not recommended for non cancer pain with perhaps the exception of some cases of neuropathy. The American Academy of Neurology just issued a statement to that effect. More people have died from narcotic overdose from prescriptions in the past 10 years than died in the Vietnam War. Fibromyalgia has never been an indication for narcotic use. If you have neuropathy from SLE you may qualify for Tx ...Read more
