They have vicoprofen which is hydrocodone plus ibuprofen rather than acetaminophen. Acetaminophen is metabolized in the liver whereas ibuprofen is metabolized in the kidney. People with liver problems often make this switch. It won't affect your liver. There is no hydrocodone by itself, it's always mixed with something and vicoprofen would be the safest for someone with liver problems if you MUST take it.

The liver and the kidneys clear toxins and chemicals from the body. However, some medications can affect the function of these organs. The Hospice website notes that nonprescription analgesic drugs such as ibuprofen can cause or worsen problems in the liver and kidneys. Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, or NSAID, that is used to relieve pain and reduce fever and inflammation.
Up to 15 percent of patients taking NSAIDs such as ibuprofen may experience mild elevations in liver, or hepatic, tests, warns RxList. These lab test abnormalities may be temporary or worsen with continued use of these painkillers. RxList also notes that in rare cases, severe hepatic effects such as jaundice, liver necrosis, or cell death, and even liver failure may occur.
