Review by mauricetatro222 (taken for 1 to 6 months):
hydrocodone / ibuprofen for Pain: I have recently begun taking hydrocodone/ibuprofen to deal with severe lower back pain. Although, I do not use it on a regular basis... It is a blessing when my lower back problem flares up. Unlike some medications that I have been prescribed in the past (Medications that I personally decided to discontinued the use of), hydrocodone/ibuprofen enables me to perform my duties on the job without any effect on my ability to remain focused and alert. In my line of work, you can't have a misstep.
Vicoprofen (hydrocodone / ibuprofen) for Pain: I just had all four wisdom teeth pulled out. I was put on ibuprofen 800 mg and it did not do crap for the pain. Went back to dentist and was put on vicoprofen. I do admit it works great for the pain but only for 4 hours. 1 hour after I would take the pill, I would vomit like clock work. It also left me feeling sick all day and very very tired! After getting sick, I would fall asleep for a few hours. I dont know whats worse, being in pain with the 800 mgs of ibuprofen or being sick all day on the vicoprofen :(
Vicoprofen (hydrocodone / ibuprofen) for Pain: I am usually against medicine to mask pain. I never really liked pain medicine. It was a muscle relaxer I took a few years ago that I believed led to my crooked neck and back. It sounds small, I'm sure everyone has had back pain. But I am 24 years old and wasn't living the life all my friends were, because pain factored into everything, ruining everything. I got depressed. I tried everything. I tried EVERYTHING. I am going to a chiropractor now hoping that helps. I still needed something to get me through all my days. I used to wake up in pain and just lay back down and cry. Now I can take Vicoprofen and it drastically helps more than anything. I would recommend this.

hydrocodone / ibuprofen for Pain: I have diabetes with very bad nerve problems and severe back problems and I lived in pain where I wouldn't go outside for a week at a time. I've been on Fentanyl patches OxyContin and nothing seems to work. I went to the emergency room at the Hospital and they gave me the medicine and I never felt better.
Vicoprofen (hydrocodone / ibuprofen) for Pain: I am 32 yrs old and have had severe chronic daily migraines/ herniated disc with lots of head and back pain ever since I was 16 yrs old. I also have a tumor on my spinal cord that causes pain as well. I've been on every pain medicine that's out there. My doc switched me to Vicoprofen 10mg 4x day due to it not having Tylenol in it. I've been on it for 2/3 months and it's working just fine. Due to me/my body having a high tolerance level because of taking pain medicines, mostly Lortab 10's for many yrs, the only thing I worry about is building up a tolerance to this as well. I can take on an empty stomach or full. I'm just thankful for the FDA coming out with this to help save my liver. Hope this helps others!

Ibudone (hydrocodone / ibuprofen) for Pain: I just started taking this medicine. I have been taking Hydrocodone with acetaminophen for pain since 2003 but recently discovered that there exists a variation with a medicine that would address inflammation in addition for pain and wondered why, for all these years no one suggested I take that variant. I specifically asked for it because I have inflammation. I take it because I have debilitating pain in my lumbar-sacral spine, in my left parietal brain, and I have IC. I also have triple major scoliosis and major depression.

Reprexain (hydrocodone / ibuprofen) for Pain: It does help with my pain from having trouble with TMJ, but I have been nauseous a lot lately. Usually when my jaw acts up I get major migraines and sensitive to light and even end up throwing up and having to put pressure until it goes away - but now I can take this and it goes away fast
Review by CouldnotTuff It out any longer (taken for 2 to 5 years):
Vicoprofen (hydrocodone / ibuprofen) for Pain: Pain problems started around 2005. Waking up one night with excruciating pain, crawling on the floor to get around in morning. It got better through out the day, but it reset over night. I dealt with this my last year in high school and a few years through college till I could finally afford some insurance and see a doctor. Turns out I had a really huge herniated disc in my L-6/L-7. Scared to get a surgery, since so "young" they'd only prescribed low dose pain killers. Desperate I got surgery. Life was great since, however, I'd suffered some nerve damage. Now take the 7,5 Vicoprofen for chronic headaches due to nerve damage, and it's amazingly quick to work and slow for tolerance, though it's inevitable. I now take 2 every 4-6 hour.

Reprexain (hydrocodone / ibuprofen) for Pain: It seemed to work as a pain medication, due to my chronic arthritis in my back with degenerative bone disease. I also have a steel rod in my right leg and other chronic illness.
Reprexain (hydrocodone / ibuprofen) for Pain: Take only as need due to severe neuropathy of amputated foot. Take only when pain is severe. Does not give me headaches as Vicodin and other similar medications.
Vicoprofen (hydrocodone / ibuprofen) for Pain: It is amazing pain relief. I built a tolerance so quickly! I could take 1 and feel so much better and soon it was one and a half 7.5s and weeks later two 7.5s. Lidoderm patch and TENS unit helped some but you feel like you need the medicine so very easy to convince your body that you NEED it. Gained 10 lbs. After 3 years and some physical therapy plus Neurontin. PM doctor switched me to Nucynta. No tolerance to that yet! They have injected my intercostal nerves with cortisone to see if it was nerve damage from the back to back pregnancies. Constipation has been horrible. I need two Vicoprofen 10s every 8 hours but oh well. Some relief is nice.
hydrocodone / ibuprofen for Pain: Cheap, short term only, good for a couple of hours of moderate pain relief. Taking 3-5 of 7.5/325 a day with the Butrans patch. With this combination at there maximum effectiveness brings my knee and hip pain from a 7-9 to a 3-4. Only downside of the hydrocodone is mild constipation and slight drowsiness.
hydrocodone / ibuprofen for Pain: I have been in severe all over body pain for about 4 years now. I am only 26 so no doctor believed when I talked about how debilitating my pain was, I wouldn't even get on the floor with my 4 year old because I was not able to get up off the floor without being in excruciating pain from my body getting stiff on me FINALLY after several doctors my current doctor discovered I have fibromyalgia. Until you experience the real pain that it truly has you can not be cynical about it as I once was. I now live in pain but this medication I take every 4 hours 1 x 7.5/200 and can actually enjoy life. No I'm not COMPLETELY pain free but no longer nauseated from too much Tylenol and for bad days take oxycodone.
Reprexain (hydrocodone / ibuprofen) for Pain: I really get excellent relief from this medication. It's very hard to find, but if you are to get a prescription for it and if your pharmacy knows you well, they will reorder it, if your taking it monthly, while deciding over surgery or to continue physical Therapy. The nerve pain associated with my accident and compression fractures, and my nerves is a bit to much. I also find great relief in the lidocaine patches, another very costy form of relief, but I will pay the monies, to not suffer from this pain. It can be unbearable!
Vicoprofen (hydrocodone / ibuprofen) for Pain: This medicine was prescribed to me before I got my wisdom teeth out due to them being impacted and causing a great deal of pain. I noticed immediately that it would provide relief for a long time(6 or more hours) compared to 800mg ibuprofen that would provide small relief for 2-3 hours. It also calmed me. I'm usually a pretty anxious guy and was nervous about my surgery but this helped get me through until I could have permanent relief. Only downside as I noticed I built a tolerance to my dose after a week.
Vicoprofen (hydrocodone / ibuprofen) for Pain: I was born with club feet (both feet turned in and bottoms turned up). Have been prescribed everything from tramadol and Vicodin to Percocet 10mg. I worried about alcohol with anything that had acetominophen so asked Doctor about Vicoprofen. It's by far better than anything else I've taken. I dont have problems taking on an empty stomach, drinking, or making bowel movements. It even does more for the pain than the few oxycodone 30mg I have been given a of couple times. Part of my condition is a short achilles tendon which makes me suffer from severe inflammation in all parts of my feet (probably why it works so well). Only side effect I have is an occasional pit in stomach when taken on empty stomach and irritability from time to time.
Reprexain (hydrocodone / ibuprofen) for Pain: This medicine worked well while waiting for the infection from an abscessed tooth to subside in order for it to be extracted. (And anyone who's had an abscessed tooth knows what real pain is).

Vicoprofen (hydrocodone / ibuprofen) for Pain: I had broken wrist.. ended up with carpal tunnel syndrome. The doctor did surgery, still was in pain after taking Lortab5 with Tylenol. The nerve from carpal tunnel became very inflamed and walked the floor like a wild animal. Ended in ER they gave me Vicoprofen which really helped the the nerve pain I used to take ibuprfen 800mg 2 a day years ago.
Vicoprofen (hydrocodone / ibuprofen) for Pain: I've been using Vicoprofen for more than 3 years. I take 3 per day for the pain of fibromyalgia and also lingering pain from having had the kneecap dislocated due to a fall. Most of the time I take it on an empty stomach with no problem. Also, I've never had a weight gain because of it or constipation. I have normal daily bowel movements. I can function at a higher than normal level. No problems for me taking Vicoprofen.
