You can, but you're mixing Acetaminophen and Ibu, why would anyone want to do that? Hope this helps.

Because I have a really bad tooth ache I hope it helps to

OK, that helps. So, I'd say it's ok so long as you take normal doses and don't overdue. Hope you feel better soon.

Yes, you can, but be sure that you have vicodin (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) not Vicoprofen (hydrocodone and ibuprofen) so that you are not taking too much ibuprofen. Vicodin doesnt help inflammation but ibuprofen will so you may feel better using them in tandem-just besure to stick to dosing schedules for both.

Thanks so much everyone :) Vicodin didn't help my toothache at all :( Ibuprofen did though! Kind of odd?

Not odd to me. Vicodin does absolutely nothing for pain for me (I have arthritis and bone spurs in my knees and feet). Ibuprofen works much better. I take vicodin when the pain makes me agitated. THAT it helps with.

It's really not that odd, your tooth was in flamed. Ibuprofen has an anti inflammatory in it. Good luck.

Ibuprofen was for my toothache the Vicodin was for my aches and pains in my knee. Was taking both at bedtime hoping I wouldn't be in pain as I sleep. Decided to half the Vicodin.
