can i take hydrocodone with naproxen
Maria ,hydrocodone apap 5/500 the 5 is the amount of narcodic , the 500 is the dosage of tylenol. The 500 is not aspirin. You have to be careful taking this because to much tylenol can ruin your liver. Call any pharmacist and they will verify medications and what they are for you. Vicodon is one of the brand names for hydrocodone.
All the info you need is here
hydrocodone apap 5-500 is a regular strength vicodin and as far as taking it with naproxen, it would depend on your situations. My advice to you in a legal way would be to check with your doctor or pharmacist. Off the record and I am not a medical professional but I have been through a lot medically is...naproxen is the same as alieve. It has anti inflmaitory too. Two different medications if you need to know that. It does not contain tylenol product if you are worried about that. I have heard though that if you have a sensitive stomach or orders not to take things with NSAID's in it then naproxen is not for you. Hope this has helped.

Hydrocodone or dihydrocodeinone is a semi-synthetic opioid derived from either of two naturally occurring opiates-codeine and thebaine. Hydrocodone is an orally active narcotic analgesic (pain reliever) and antitussive (cough suppressant). It is commonly available in tablet, capsule, and syrup form, and is often compounded with other, generally less effective non-opioid compounds such as paracetamol (also known as acetaminophen) or ibuprofen, often added both to discourage recreational use (as paracetamol can cause potentially fatal liver toxicity at high doses), and to provide a possible synergy of analgesic effects between hydrocodone and the non-opioid compounds present. However, the effectiveness and safety of hydrocodone compound products versus hydrocodone-only products remains a highly debated issue.
The particular niche in which hydrocodone is most commonly used is as an intermediate centrally acting analgesic and strong cough suppressant, especially in those for whom histamine release and attendant itching from codeine is a problem. For the latter indication, at the 5 to 10 mg dose range hydrocodone is more powerful than most cough suppressants, being roughly equal to its derivative dihydrocodeinone enol acetate, with the top of the list being morphine and hydromorphone and methadone (methadone linctus, about 33 percent the concentration of the liquid used for opioid physical dependence maintenance or detoxification) and dihydrocodeine being right below. The experiments in dogs conducted by Winder and Rosière in the mid-1950s reported in the Journal of Pharmacology in 1955 indicate that hydrocodone is 12 times stronger than codeine as an antitussive (morphine 14×, methadone 9×), and other tests from 1920 forward showed it was about six times stronger as an analgesic.
