Checked on the Interactions Checker, they need to be monitored:
Applies to: Soma (carisoprodol), Vicoprofen (hydrocodone/ibuprofen)
MONITOR: Central nervous system- and/or respiratory-depressant effects may be additively or synergistically increased in patients taking multiple drugs that cause these effects, especially in elderly or debilitated patients.
MANAGEMENT: During concomitant use of these drugs, patients should be monitored for potentially excessive or prolonged CNS and respiratory depression. Ambulatory patients should be counseled to avoid hazardous activities requiring mental alertness and motor coordination until they know how these agents affect them, and to notify their physician if they experience excessive or prolonged CNS effects that interfere with their normal activities.
Hydrocodone and soma both can depress breathing, but if you are scripted both of them by the same doctor (or if theyre from different doctors but they both know everything you take) I think it would be a safe combination. As long as the dosing and timing of dosing is put in to consideration then there shouldnt be any big problems
