Yes, but it could also be caused by any other number of reasons. If the stomach pain wasn't severe, you can try taking the ibuprofen again in a few days and see if it happens again. If the pains WERE severe, of course do not takt it again. Either way, you could be allergic to the ibuprofen.

It takes 6-8 hours for ibuprofen to be depleted from your system.

You should wait two hours between taking the two. Take tylenol, then two hours later you can take the ibuprofen

I'm not a doctor, but my own doctor told me not to take ibuprofen or aspirin with Cymbalta as it can cause your blood to become thinner.I wouldn't recommend mixing the two on a regular basis. Taking cymbalta with any NSAID can cause stomach bleeding. If it's used on occasion then it shouldn't be a problem. I used to take 600mg of ibuprofen every 6-8 hours every day with cymbalta and it caused my stomach to bleed. Also, the higher the dose, the more likely bleeding is to occur (i.e. 120mg of cymbalta daily with 800mg of ibuprofen QID).

Tylenol and Ibuprofen are two different classifications of drugs. They may be taken together. For prolonged pain/fever relief, the best way is to take the Tylenol and then two hours later take the Ibuprofen.

Since Darvocet has Tylenol in it, you cannot take them within 4 hours of each other. Try alternating Darvocet with ibuprofen - take the ibuprofen every 6 to 8 hours, and if you need Darvocet, take it at least 3 hours after the ibuprofen. That way, you won't get too much Tylenol, but it will relieve your pain better.

Prescription Ibuprofen will not show up on a drug test. It should lose effectiveness 4-6 hours after taking a dose.

Yes. It is safe to take Excedrin Migraine 6-8 hours after taking any ibuprofen product such as Motrin or Advil.

2 every 4 hours or as prescribed by your doctor no more than 6 a day otherwise your stomach will be upset

The maximum amount of ibuprofen in 24 hours is 3200 mg

User Avatar

You should not take more than 800 mg (four over-the-counter tablets of 200 mg each) every eight hours - taking more ibuprofen will cause stomach ulcers and internal bleeding.

The short answer is yes. Ibuprofen and Aspirin are both drugs that are non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS). If you took a standard dose of aspirin for pain (325-650mg) and were still experiencing some discomfort you can take so ibuprofen. I would recommend taking it with food to reduce stomach upset.

Paracetamol should always be the first choice as it has fewer side effects than ibuprofen. It is therefore better to take paracetamol first and then use ibuprofen 2-3 hours later - but only if the paracetamol has not worked in controlling your symptoms. The chemist says - it is best to avoid taking several different pain medicines all at once because of stomach upset, nausea, and the possibility that you might not need all that medicine! You need to separate different types of pain medication. In this case, you can use the "Three Hour Switch" that doctors explain to all parents. Take one medicine, then after three hours, switch and take the next one. Three hours after that, switch back to the first one. Keep switching back and forth until you feel better. You should reconsider the need to take both paracetamol and ibuprofen on a daily basis because it's best to avoid taking unnecessary medicines. Avoid taking ibuprofen and aspirin together. They can cause serious stomach upset which can lead to indigestion, gastritis and ulcers.

Prescribed thyroid medication will state on the bottle the proper way to take it, as directed by a doctor. Typically it will say to take one tablet in the morning, on an empty stomach, with plenty of water. Doctors will note to not take antacids, calcium or iron within four hours of taking the medication. Ask your doctor when will be the best time for you to take Ibuprofen.

You should wait at least 6 hours after naproxen if you want to take ibuprofen or any other anti-inflammatory drug... The mechanism of action is the same... you won't get any additional benefit by taking ibuprofen before that 6 hours. You'll only have more side effects.

Ibuprofen is a blood thinner, just like aspirin and ideally should be avoided 2 weeks prior to surgery. Acetominophen (Tylenol) does not have that effect and can be taken instead. Incorrect. After taking ibuprofen, unlike aspirin, blood platelet function returns to normal in about 24 hours. Ibuprofen should be discontinued at least 24 hours before surgery. I am a physician, and I have discovered that many surgeons are unaware of the difference between aspirin and ibuprofen with regard to platelet function.

Most Doctors would try to avoid having you taking both as together they can thin your blood. However, should you need to take both, as Ibuprofen (Naproxen) is an NSAID and reduces inflammation, you should take only 1000mg's of Tylenol (2 - 500mg tablets) and 2 Ibuprofen (2 - 500mg Ibuprofen) every 6-8 hours as needed for pain & inflammation.

This medication is used to treat occasional episodes of constipation. It acts to produce a bowel movement within 6 hours of taking a dose. This medication is also used for upset stomach caused by heartburn, acid indigestion or sour stomach; for peptic ulcer, hiatal hernia or other conditions caused by excess stomach acid; and to prevent ulcers or bleeding from ulcers.- So in other words.... yes.

User Avatar

No because that would be four different pain killers at one time. You could end up injuring your stomach and having bleeding or get an ulcer. Separate the Goody powder from the ibuprofen by at least 3 hours (on either side of the dose).

User Avatar

You should be careful... midol has acetaminophen and Advil has ibuprofen. Just let about 2 hours before taking 1 after the other.

User Avatar

You can take 4 every 8 hours. So you can take 12 pills a day. So you can 360 in a month, However, I advise against this. Ibuprofen is not reccommended for continued use for more than a week. If you are taking the recommended dosage every day (wich is two 200mg pills, every 4 hours but not exceeding 8 pills in a day) for a longer period of time than that you may develop stomach problems. Taking ibuporfen with food can help reduce this effect. If you continue to expirience pain, talk to your physician about pain management tools. If you are expiriencing side effects such as stomach cramps or blood in your stool, seek medical attention.

No, it is unsafe to take two 800mg of ibuprofen. You should only take one 800mg of ibuprofen every for to six hours. You should not exceed 2400mg of ibuprofen in a 24 hour period.

User Avatar

Wait four hours in between because Coricidin usually has acetaminophen in it and you don't want to take 2 pain killers at once.

User Avatar

According to my doctor, 4 hours. You can switch them up. Take acetaminophen, (Tylenol), then wait 4 hours and take Ibuprofen, wait another 4 hours and take acetaminophen and so on. :)

User Avatar

If you ate for 20 minutes, wait for 3-5 hours, or if you ate for 1/2 an hour, wait for 4-6 hours. Do NOT wait two hours because there may be a risk if your digestion is incomplete

User Avatar

I have always been told that you can use Tylenol and ibuprofen in an overlapping manner, but not neccessarily together. Meaning if Tylenol is every4-6 hours and ibuprofen is every 4-6 hours then you could take one dose of Tylenol and then one dose of ibuprofen every 2-3 hours. I wouldn't do this unless there is a lot of pain or fever. Good luck!
