You know, the best person to answer medication questions is your local Pharmacist. That's exactly what they go to school for and they know more then a reg. doctor. Hydrocodone contains acetaminophen (tylenol) and usually acetaminophen and ibuprofen should not be taken at the same time but can be spread out by at least 2-3 hours. Call your pharmacist to confirm.
