Vicoprofen side effects

What are the side effects of Vicoprofen? ## I was given vicoprofen several years ago for pain. After taking it for a month, I only had to take a pill once a week. There since has been controversy about it being a narcotic, so now I am just given ultracet. I have been in constant every since. If I miss a dose of ultracet I can hardly function because the pain is too overwhelming. This seems more like a narcotic to me, nokw it seems like I am really on a drug!!!!!!! ## Vicoprofen contains Hydrocodone, and Acetaminophen, both it and Tramadol are classified as opiate analgesics. The FDA warns that they both carry the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Ref: Vicoprofen Information and Tramadol Information ...

white round tablet #013 on front and large v with pin the middle

I am wondering if this is a generic tylenol or something similar? I'm wondering if there are pictures of generic tylenol in various shapes and sizes? ## I cannot identify a pill. It has a large upside down V with a P in between the 45 degree angles. I have seen others describe a similar pill here, but unlike those, this one does not have an A, nothing is underlined, though the number 013 does appear on the back. Someone suggested it might be Vicoprofen, but I have never seen that drug in person. Any help would be greatly appreciated. ## Does anyone know what a small white tablet (quite a deep little tablet) is with 5VP on one side is please? My research suggests it could be vicoprofen - That's the only med that matches VP - I have been given it for my dog for disc problems. If i...

Dealing with generic Vicoprofen

I have been taking Vicoprofen for over a year now for chronic pain, back disk degen, Major lung surgery.. If you have been taking generic there are a huge difference in effectiveness between brands.. the best brand (generic is Qualitest sold at walgreens and all the others are not half as effective.. If you take something every day you expect it to work..I know there all suppose to contain the same but i believe there are fda standards that are the minimum but these companies want to get there cost down by using safe acceptable generic medications but the quality is not there in several generics..I have decided to try the name brand on my next refill because every time i get stuck with one of the generics like andrx,teva,watson and when you explain why you would like a certain generic y...

Vicoprofen prescription

I recently had my appendix burst on me, and the surgeon can't do the surgery until the swelling and inflammation goes down to an acceptable level. Also put me on Ertapenam iv daily infusion to keep bacterial infection away. I have a prescription for vicoprofen 7.5/200, but my insurance company will only approve 50 per month! The prescription is for every 4 hrs as needed. I am wondering if this script is eligible for the mail order prescription that I can get with all of my other meds, or no , because it is a controlled substance/ opioid ? And just how expensive would it be to pay out of pocket for the remainder of that which my insurance won't cover ? Thanks

is ip145 same as other generic vicoprofen

Is there a difference between ip 145 generic ibuprofen and other generic ibuprofen? My pharmacist gave me this one (ip145) because it was a lot less money than the other generic brand I was taking.

Vicoprofen help with herniated disc pain?

I want to know if anyone has had success with Vicoprofen for herniated disc pain? ## As with any medication, it is successful at helping some people, but not all. Vicoprofen contains Hydrocodone and Ibuprofen, this combines a potent narcotic with a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

vicoprofen ip 145

I usually take norcos 7.5 & 10mg. I take 3-4 at a time so roughly about 40mg at a time...are these vicoprophen just like the norcos or different and how? ## Vicoprofen contains Hydrocodone and Ibuprofen (200mgs), rather than the Acetaminophen that Norco contains. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. That is a lot of Acetaminophen to take, at once. You should not exceed 1,000mgs per dose, every 8 hours, or as warned by the NIH, you may experience liver damage, or failure. Has your doctor directed you to take this much?

vicoprofen look alikes

My adult daughter is in pain management. She takes her medicine as prescribed usually with a few left over as she has a few extra for really bad days. She recently tested negative for her own meds 2 months in a row. She had complained sometimes they weren't helping, around the same time her dad moved back. I strongly believe he was switching at least some of her pills out. I asked about markings and she said they didn't look like they were the same color and size. She didn't think to look after the original check and count with pick up. She is in danger of loosing treatment because not taking your meds is violation of contract. When I suggested to the doc that someone replaced them or something he said nothing's similar. I know they are almost identical to my fioricet ex...

vicoprofen 7 5 200

I was given 90 vicoprofen for chronic back pain. Ive ran out in 12 days. Can i uae hydrocodone 5-500 until my refill this week? Doesnt seem strong ## Hello, Drakee! How are you? It would be best not to do so, unless your doctor approves. The 5/500 Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen is probably close to being equivalent to the 7.5/200 Hydrocodone/Ibuprofen, however. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## both medicines are about the same 5 / 7.5 / once tylenol ones ibuprofen both about the same and both are habit forming

## what is it ## Vicoprofen is a combination Narcotic/Anti Inflammatory NSAID medication. It will contain both Vicodin and Ibuprofen in varying amounts depending on what your Doctor Prescribed. If it states 5/200 the first number will indicate mg of Vicodin and the second number will indicate mg of Ibuprofen. This medication is not prescribed very often and is used as an unusual combination when other methods of pain control are not working. It may also be prescribed with other medications to assist in reducing moderate/severe pain.
