Had 2 wisdom teeth pulled. Is is safe to take ibuprofen 600mg 5 times a day and amoxicillin 875 every 12 hours and hydrocodon 7.5-325 as needed 4/6 h?

In brief: Should be fine

The antibiotic dose is fine.
The pain medications are each ok. Ibuprophen should not exceed 3200 mg per day. The Codeine should not exceed 8 in 24 hours. The ibuprophen is an antii-inflammatory and will address soft tissue swelling and inflammation and this should allow you to be comfortable so your muscles don't tense up and aggravate your discomfort. Drop the Codeine as soon as you can.

In brief: Over medicated

That may be a lot of medication.
Please check recommendations with the oral surgeon or dentist that did the extractions.

In brief: Oral surgeon

That's a lot of Ibuprofen and i would worry about bleeding following oral surgery.
Check with your oral surgeon on this.
