i am 47. It is my 15 year old daughter who is having the pain.

Expert:  Nurse Milli, RN replied 6 years ago.

Ok, thanks. Yes, Vicodin is effective for ear pain. Sounds like she has got an ear infection going on. Usually the olive oil will help because of the warmth of the oil but there are some conflicting opinions on whether or not it should be used or not. But you can give her the Vicodin until you can get her to the Dr for an exam and appropriate antibiotics If you can let me know what she weighs. This way I can make sure she weighs enough to take it.
