My NP recently put me on hydrocodone/ibuprofen. I had been under the impression it was immediate-acting, but after two doses of no pain relief and no side effects, I'm not sure if it's too low a dose or if I just have a weird tolerance. It's been 18 months since I've had anything approaching a narcotic (tramadol), and before that it had been seven years since I'd been on IV narcotics following surgery. I've been in chronic pain for almost 10 years.

Has anyone else been on the 5/200 formulation? How effective was it for you?
