Vicodin with advil

Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin with advil


Avatar f tn I am addicted to Tramadol from fribromyalgia pain and I ran out of tram and I had some left over hydro so I took some to help with restless legs and it did work a little, I know its bad but I didnt know what else to do. But my question is it safe to mix Vicodin with Advil pm? Its almost 1 am and I just want to be done with the day now, but I dont wanna get hurt or anything...
Avatar f tn Would it be ok to administer 4 advil and a half a vicodin to relieve the pain? He weighs 180. All other medicines, per his doctor, can be administered following the adult dosage on the bottles. (ie: tylenol, cold remedies, motrin, etc.) I appreciate your help, thanks!
Avatar m tn I started taking a lot of Tylenol(4g a day, but never more), sometimes mixed with Advil to curb my back pain. I then moved on to the doctor and go prescribed Vicodin. Next was the Percocet. I have never considered myself an addict to pain meds, for the most part I used them responsibly. As I type now I have been attending PT for the back pain and have been off any type of pain medication for 3-4 weeks. Anyway to get to my question.
Avatar f tn Furthermore, codeine is not the active ingredient in Vicodin. The active ingredient in Vicodin is hydrocodone and a standard Vicodin contains 5 mg. And you have to specifically ask the pharmacist for this tylenol/codeine/caffeine combo, it is not out on the shelves, even in Canada. I'd ask your wife just why she decided to purchase it? Good luck.
Avatar m tn I have taken Advil cold and sinus before and it works. As for the cough syrup i have used the Robitussin or Triaminic stuff. Ask the pharmacists about it too as they will help you.
Avatar f tn s okay rather than to just assume it is. I was so nervous I was going to take the advil she told me to take plus the vicodin which I take for my arthritis pain only when needed and my xanax which I also take only when needed for extreme anxiety. It does sound like a lot of medication for one procedure, and I guess I don't want to do anything dangerous when combining all of those drugs. Thanks for your input.
Avatar f tn Is is okay for me to take Advil for my muscle aches? I used to take Advil with the Vicodin to make high last longer. Does anyone has any opinions.
Avatar m tn I have a lot of chronic pain problems with my knee, I had surgery on it a while ago, it has arthritis in it now, it bothers me everyday, I have herniated discs in my lower back and and problems with my left ankle. I have been on all sorts of meds in the past, including vicodin and percocet. My orthopedic Dr. told me before I could mix tylenol with advil and it would equal a pain pill without the narcotic effect.
Avatar m tn I am on day 3 of vicodin withdraws. I was on them for a little over a year. Soits been 3 days and I feel horrible and have all the normal symptoms. How much longer do I have, and what can I do to make myself get better faster??
Avatar m tn imo, you should be able to stop without the wd's. you may still have mental issues as far as craving, your brain making your pain appear worse, etc if i were you, i would substitute advil or tylenol for the lortab. the habit of taking them will be annoying so substituting it for a non opiate med would help that. it is possible, but improbable you will get much physical wd.
Avatar f tn I do remember a few years ago they ( FDA or some govt agency) were talking about taking vics off of the market because of people going into liver failure with taking them and mixing with other actiminaphine containing drugs.I guess upto 7000 mgs a day of actiminaphine is ok but still I dont know why.
Avatar m tn Hi guys! I have a lot of chronic pain problems with my knee, back and foot. I have been on all sorts of meds in the past, including vicodin and percocet. My orthopedic Dr. told me before I could mix tylenol with advil and it would equal a pain pill without the narcotic effect. I don't remember how many of each to take and how many hours apart to take each of them. Is this safe? I would rather take these then go back on pain meds! Thanks!
Avatar f tn I was given vicodin and told I could alternate that with Advil. I took the vicodin only before bed and did ok with just the advil during the day. I would say just try the advil, it that doesn't cut it for you then the next time that you can take some meds take the percocet. By the third day I barely needed the advil anymore. I hope it starts to feel better for you soon! Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar m tn I guess I should have said Vicodin, not Norco. Of course, they are the same thing.......
Avatar f tn 5 mg of hydrocodone with 200 mg of Advil. No tylenol at all, and I find it works much better for me. You can also take pepcid or zantac with your meds to help with the upset stomach.
Avatar n tn u will feel kinda clammy and flu-like for 4-5 days and the physical part will be pretty much over...then you just gotta get your mind to work with you as with quitting any habit...there is lots of support here...
Avatar n tn I also had to have a sinus flap done after the removal of the top molars. I was given antibiotics and Vicodin to take, which I have done so on schedule. So far I've felt ZERO pain. The post-op instructions all say to keep an ice pack on for swelling, which I have not used because there is no swelling so far. I've read online that there will be MORE pain and swelling on the second and third days (not the first) after the surgery.
Avatar f tn I have been clean from vicodin for 3 weeks now, but I hurt my back while moving into a new house. One of my relatives gave me a few flexarol but I have not taken them. Is it ok for me to take flexeral or is that an opiate like vicodin? I don't want to take something that is going to remind me of vicodin.
Avatar n tn definitley divine intervention there,will otc like advil help with your headaches? the vicodin will trick you into feeling like everything is ok,but it just gets worse and worse as far as how many you will need to feel good...the good thing is you havent been taking them for years so you should be able to kick this,maybe tell your dr about your headaches and get something non-narcotic to help you...take care of yourself and take vitamins...
Avatar n tn I bit down hard on a popcorn kernel last Friday (six days ago), and am still in pain. The gland under my jaw, on the left side is swollen. What, exactly is going on? I had the area X-rayed, and nothing showed up. I'd like to know how long this pain is going to last. I am taking Advil and Vicodin to stop the pain.
Avatar f tn m bearly found out I was expecting and goodness everyday head aches is it okay to take Advil liquid gels pills because I took three of how bad it was and it still hurts! This is an everyday thing! Also I get cramps out of no where and they are so painful!
Avatar f tn By taking the oxycodone, you can take either Tylenol or Advil along with it, but you can take it with, say, every OTHER dose so that you don't exceed the toxic level every day. You will end up with liver problems if you take large amounts of acetominophen and that will be more dangerous to you than larger doses of opiate. Once a person becomes opiate-tolerant, they can tolerate quite a high dose of opiates safely, it's the acetominophen that will hurt them before the opiate does.
Avatar f tn I wrote because I had an emergency dental appointment today for an abcess tooth. My dentist, along with two other scripts, wrote me one for vicodin, a small script..only 24 pills. I went to the pharmacy and dropped off the two other scripts and NOT the one for the vicodin although I really wanted to.
Avatar n tn Applying ice and keeping your head elevated will also help immensely. You can keep the Vicodin until you see how you do with the post surgery pain, or if it's stressing you out just having them around, you could get rid of them. Let us know how your surgery goes, ok?
Avatar f tn Ask your doctor what else you can take, there are things....... Funny how we can plug down 200 vicodin a day, but can't take an advil.......sorry, but it cracks me up. Its just the nature of the beast .....I guess. What can we say......? nauty.........
918457 tn?1244645682 It was physicially a rough week.....aches, pains, nausea, diarrhea, restlessness, anxiety. Motrin or advil do help with the pain. Immodum for the GI stuff, hot baths, distraction and low expectations of what I could accomplish those 10 days were key. But the real work comes after that. Make sure you have some support. THis place is great....keep posting here! AA/NA. Couseling. Stopping the meds are just the first step. But a HUGE one. Congratulations for makimg the decsion. Good luck!
1099361 tn?1258662257 I take ibuprofen (advil, motrin, etc), but take it with food. It tends to upset my stomach too, but if I munch on something first, it's fine. Just my experience.
