How long after taking Hydrocodone/Ibuprofen can i drink alcohol?

I took 2 vicodin pills( each pill is strength 7.5 mg hydrocodone and 200 mg Ibuprofen) and its 12 pm. Would it be safe for me to consume alcohol by about 9 pm tonight?

its all a crock of **** ive been takeing the same meds ur on now hydrocodone 7.5 ive drunk while takeing the pills. but you sholdnt over do it. the reason your not supossed to drink while takeing the pills is because it intensifies the effect of the pills. i usually dont drink no more then 4 or 5 beers while i take the meds. but if you drink too much it will cause serious breathing problems it could even cause death. but i drink while takeing them all the time. you wont die or nothing unless you really over drink

What will happen if i take hydrocodone with alcohol?

i know it wont kill me or anything like that, but i wanna know what will happen if i take alcohol with my hydrocodone (which is quite similar to vicodin)

According to info on google, the mixture can cause excessive drowsiness, respiratory problems, central nervous system problems, and liver damage. The info below is from google & also take a look at the link.

It is not recommended to mix any amounts of hydrocodone and alcohol as doing so could cause health problems. APAP is metabolized solely by the liver. Therefore the risk of fatal overdose due to hepatotoxicity can occur with significantly lower levels of APAP when mixed with ethanol. Also the mixture causes serious damage to the liver, kidneys, and stomach wall. It also increases the potential for coma, respiratory problems, and can damage the CNS. Due to the feeling of euphoria it provides, these potentially negative consequences are often ignored by physically and/or psychologically dependent users.

Few questions about Adderall, Vicadin, Hydrocodone, Alcohol?

Any negative side effects mixing alcohol and adderall?

Do doctors say to eat when you take vicadin/ hydro or not to eat?

What about mixing alcohol and vicadin/ hydro?

Adderall speeds you up, Alcohol slows you down. Not good. You would be speed balling for awhile. Which is not good on your heart. Your heart gets confused. It wont know whether to speed up or slow down. I got prescribed to vicodin for my neck, and I have realized that i dont get an upset stomach if i eat before i take the pill. But if you eat alot and take vicodin, it might not have as much of an effect. Vicodin already makes me sleepy after about 3 hours, and drinking alcohol with it, just makes me more sleepy.

How long after taking 5mg hydrocodone should I wait to drink alcohol?

I took a 5 mg pill at around 10am this mornining and I'm wondering, would it be safe to drink around 7pm tonight?

The amount of hydrocodone isn't nearly as important as the amount of acetaminophen. Still not recommended, as both tend to wreck your liver.

Tylenol hydrocodone alcohol event concern?

I'm on long-term pain mgt and was coming off of a blocker (suboxone) when I took the following doses of 15mg hydrocodone APAP with 80mg tylenol each (yes, these are the right numbers: 15/80).

2pm took 5x15/80 with 1 Soma
5pm took 3x15/80 with 1 Soma
7pm took 3x15/80 with 1 Soma AND 2 oz alcohol
9pm took 4x15/80 with 1 Soma
So total 15 of these capsules x80mg tylenol = 1.2G tylenol with the 2oz of alcohol plus the 15x15mg hydrocodone = 225mg. I'm 190 lb 46 y/o male.
So have been nauseous through the night (it's 5am now) and dizzy w/minor stomache pain. Sure can't go to E.R. unless it's really life and death.
What is my situation?

Thanks so much!

You should be asking this question of a Trained Pharmacist!
Anyone on Yahoo! Answers can *claim* to be such, & give you DEADLY guidance--Call a pharmacist, &/or your doctor! Pharmacists usually know more about drugs,
but your dr. ought to know more about you...

EFT is being used successfully by many for various types of pain, including chronic pain. Why not look into that?

Chronic pain can truly be debilitating! It has even been shown to cause brain damage. So its very encouraging to know that such disabilities will not always exist!

Can hydrocodone-homatropine be taken before use of alcohol?

im currently using that medicine for throat pains and coughing,
and im going to a party tonight

if i take my medicine, is it safe to drink alcohol as well?

dont give me your opinionated answers, i just want real medical facts.

Doctors only recommend not drinking while taking medication b/c of the drowsiness which occurs and your judgment becomes impaired. It has nothing to do with how the medication works. If you drink while on the meds, they will work the same.. just side effects will be increased.

How much alcohol does the oral solution of hydrocodone-apap 7.5-500 soln contain?

How much alcohol does the oral solution of hydrocodone-apap 7.5-500 soln contain?

The sheet I could find for it (linked below) doesn't list alcohol as an ingredient at all. It looks like the liquid components are water, propylene glycol, polyethylene glycol, and glycerine.

But to be sure, you should probably give a call to the pharmacy where you got it and ask. The pharmacist would know for sure, and it's part of their job to answer questions like that.
