You need to consult you physician on that matter. Depending on any pre-existing health conditions you may already have, your physician would be the only person competant to answer that question because of his/her extensive knowledge of your medical history. But for all intensive purposes I would think so. Generally... Yes. However it's important that you take it with food and as stated above, the only way to answer this definitely is if I knew more about your medical history; for instance if you are elderly, have gastric problems, kidney problems or one of a hundred other things then this would need further consideration.

Yes it is perfectly safe as long as you take it as directed. I've been on lithium for 4 years and have never had a problem with taking ibuprofen.

If you're asking what it means, it means take one ibuprofen tablet four times a day for two weeks after surgery.

No its not safe to take ibuprofen at all during pregnancy, especially in the beginning. If you took some I'm sure you'll be ok but I wouldn't do it anymore.

Ibuprofen is not safe for anyone with kidney disease. People with diabetes are at risk for kidney disease and therefore should not take ibuprofen unless a provider advises it. Ibuprofen can cause acute renal failure in people with kidney problems.

500mg of ibuprofen is a relatively safe dosage, even for someone of that weight.

User Avatar

its not safe, to many drugs in your system.

User Avatar

No, not unless a Doctor has prescribed this for you.

User Avatar

This combination should be perfectly safe. Just be sure that the Triaminic formulation which you are purchasing doesn't already have ibuprofen in it because you would not want to take more ibuprofen than recommended.

Prozac is an SSRI that is metabolized by the CYP2D6 enzyme, and Ibuprofen is an NSAID that is metabolized by CYP2C9. There is no interaction that I am aware of between these two medicines. Yes, it is safe to take Ibuprofen. But if you have any doubts or further questions, ask your pharmacist. They will be glad to help.

User Avatar

Yes, you can take Cetirizine and Ibuprofen at the same time. This combination of medications is considered safe as long as you do not exceed the recommended dosage for either drug.

User Avatar

yes; the painkiller in Fioricet is different from the anti-inflammatory painkiller in Advil (ibuprofen); so it is safe to take them together as long as you take the recommended dosage for each.

Due to the risk of increased bleeding, wait 8 hours after aspirin to take ibuprofen and another 8 to take aspirin again.

User Avatar

Yes. The two are not the same class of drugs.

Nicoderm CQ is used in the cessation of smoking. Use of ibuprofen is not considered as causing a major interaction.
