    I was recently in a car accident in march I was prescribed Vicodin 7.5/500. It was not helping with the pain and the Acetaminophen was making me break out in a rash. My doctor was going to switch me to Percocet 10/325 for better pain management and less Acetaminophen but had second thoughts because of the addictive nature of Percocet. So he prescribed me Vicoprofen instead since it only has 200mg of Ibuprofen in each pill and you can take more in one sitting and plus it's easier on the organs such as the liver. I had never tried Vicoprofen before until today and took two when i got back from the doctor's office the same amount I would take of Vicodin. I was completely shocked to find out the Vicoprofen is a stronger than the Vicodin in the same dosage. I thought it might be in my head but some research online confirmed that with some scientific studies. It has to do with the Ibuprofen bringing out the Hydrocodone better than Acetaminophen. I wounder why Vicoprofen is the least talked about Hydrocodone pain killer and least prescribed. What do you think Vicoprofen vs. Vicodin. Why the difference? Why isn't it prescribed more?
