Can you take vicodin and advil at the same time?

I have a concussion and was prescribed vicodin however its not really killing the pain so is it okay to take advil?
Answers:    I do not see any reported side effects listed if these two medications are taken together. The only interaction is alcohol, which is poorly documented and moderate in severity. However, if you do experience any side effects, you need to notify your doctor immediately.
Ask your doctor due to the components in Vicodin and in Advil you may get a reaction. You don't need any more pain.
Best bet would be to call the doctor about it. I don't know and don't want to give you false information.
You should ask your doctor to be sure or call your local ER and ask to speak to a RN but it should be okay. Vicodin is hydrocodone and tylenol. You can rotate tylenol and aspirin every 2 hours.
I think it's fine. Get your prescription bottle and call the pharmacy (the number will be on your bottle of Vicodin) and ask the pharmacist. It's the quickest, easiest way to find the answer. Hope you feel better.
