Can you take Levi thyroxin and ibuprofen together?
These drugs are not known to interact. However, Levothyroxine can cause some people to feel flushed or jittery after taking it. Ibuprofen increases gastric acidity and can cause heartburn symptoms or gastric ulcers in time. Both of those effects at the same time sound uncomfortable. Also, it is almost never a bad idea to space out drugs throughout the day to avoid them mixing within your stomach. But, really, there should be no problem, especially if you've taken these drugs independently with no issues.

You can indeed take both of these medications at the same time, and in fact your doctor may recommend that you do so. These drugs do not exhibit any inherent, dangerous interaction with each other, and have been in the field for a long time, so no new findings are likely or anticipated. However, as …toxicity is always a function of dosage, any time you take any active medication, you need to be aware of how much you take, and what other medications you're taking that act in the same manner. Ibuprofen and Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) belong to the group of drugs called NSAIDs - Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs. They work in a very similar but not identical way. Acetaminophen is not considered an NSAID and is thought to work in the brain rather than peripherally. They are gastrointestinal irritants (APAP, the least irritating, also doesn't perform as well as an anti-inflammatory). They work as pain relievers by inhibiting prostaglandin synthesis. And, even though these drugs do not specifically interact with each other, unsupervised or self-medication has the risk of overdosing, if the patient takes very high doses or two or three of these meds concurrently. The makers of Tylenol (APAP) specifically do not recommend the patient mixing these drugs without medical supervision. The reason for this is, while the drugs can themselves be safely used concurrently, dosage and over-dosage is always a concern. Understandably, they are worried about accidental overdose resulting from ignorance of the contents of all the medications their customers can take, and they've opted for the most conservative if not the most medically effective course in issuing this warning. It is further observed that many over the counter and prescription products contain these medications. For instance, Tylenol is the brand name for APAP, so of course it'll contain it. Vicodin, a prescription painkiller, also contains APAP. And so on. The wise patient will keep a sharp eye on this when they use over the counter remedies, and will tell their doctor what they've taken, be it prescription, OTC or homeopathic/natural/herbal medication, so that the caregiver can make a clear, informed decision about further medication. It's generally accepted that the more a patient knows about their condition and medication, the better it is for everyone. Keep in mind it is important to take the appropriate dosage. Overdosing can lead to drug toxicity. (MORE)
Answer . Currently, there are no known drug interactions between ibuprofen and amoxicillin. So it should be safe for you to take them together. N.B.: This is not a professional advice, consult with your doctor/pharmacist
Yes, but only if the Midol product that you've chosen does not have ibuprofen in it. There are several formulations of Midol, and I know at least one of them has it in it! Read the back of the packaging...if it says ibuprofen, don't take extra ibuprofen with it. If it says acetaminophen (as well as …other ingredients that are NOT ibuprofen), you can go ahead and take it with ibuprofen. (MORE)
[i heard dont mix ibuprofen and acetaminophen together.neocitrancold and flu contains acetaminophen.] Previous answer is wrong: ibuprofen and acetaminophen are one ofthe few definitely safe combinations and this is often prescribedby doctors when stronger pain relief is needed. By taking bothdrugs… you avoid having to take too much of either one. You shouldnot, however, mix Ibuprofen with aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid, orASA) or Naproxen (Aleve). People often mix up acetaminophen andASA, so read carefully. The problem in answering this question is that there are severaldifferent types of neo citran and each contain differentcombinations of drugs. You have to look at the particular productyou purchased and see what drug mix is in it. (i.e., the "coughcold and flu" formula is not the same as "cold and flu" or "totalsymptom relief." ). You have to check for interactions with all ofthe components. (MORE)
Yes you can, but note the following: Ibuprofen, like aspirin, reduces pain perception and is also an anti-inflammatory drug. Ibuprofen can also cause stomach problems, which may get as bad as demanding professional attention. Paracetamol reduces pain and fever (temperature), just like aspirin,… but isn't an anti-inflammatory drug. It is relatively safe to use and definitely safer to use than ibuprofen. When pain is not relieved within a normal time-frame, by a normal dose (read the package leaflet) of paracetamol, aspirin or ibuprofen; you should always consult a medical professional (MD, nurse practitioner or pharmacist). It is not recommended to use aspirin or ibuprofen to combat inflammation without a doctors consult. (MORE)
Don't ask the internet, ask your doctor . While sites such as this one and other types of search engines make finding answers easy and fast, I believe it is in the general public's best interest to leave medical opinions to trained professionals such as doctors or pharmacists. Due to countless v…ariables from person to person, you should never try to self- diagnose or medicate. I work at an Urgent Care and my least favorite thing to hear is " I looked up my symptoms online and I think I have _____. " In most cases, what patients are actually suffering from turns out to be fairly minor or substantially more severe than they thought. Many answers are based on personal experience or second hand information, which may have been the proper plan of treatment for the author's diagnosis. Going to your PCP or specialist frequently does not make you and expert and you should always consider the following: Your opinions could lead to serious injury or death . An opinion, No! They contain similar medicines and having both in your system at the same time can result in an overdose. So therefore, just take the Aleve, or the ibuprofin. Not both. Side effects include a slight increase in the chance of stomach bleeding. Another Opinion Yes. Although they contain similar medicines (NSAIDs), there are no known adverse interactions between the two. I asked this question of my doctor after having ACL surgery on my knee, recovery from which was quite painful for a stretch. He said that using different pain medications concurrently can actually have a complementary effect. Some combinations are to be avoided, such as naproxen and aspirin, but this one is OK. Note that you should still be mindful of the combined dosage, as the possible gastrointestinal side effects of these two drugs are similar. In other words, nothing wrong with using them together, but don't take the full dose of both. I usually take one ibuprofen and one naproxen and it works great. A Third Opinion No. Naproxen Sodium and almost all other NSAIDs are metabolized in the kidneys. Combining NSAIDs can over time do some serious damage to your kidneys. While overdosing is a concern taking normal dosages generally will not result in a deadly combination but can cause cramping, stomach bleeding, a marked drop in blood pressure, dizziness, and/or fatigue. Conversely, Acetaminophen is metabolized in the liver and can be combined with NSAIDs without any real problems. 4th Opinion yes! i have two ruptured discs, and have been prescribed both naproxen and ibuprofen, as well as percocet and tramadol, and all is well! i prefer taking the naproxen with tramadol or a percocet and it works pretty well. i havent had any stomach or kidney problems (including upsets or pains), although it has been a while since my kidneys in particular were checked out for anything unnoticed.

Answer . Yes...it's just a double dose. Motrin is the BRAND name for Ibuprofen the drug.
Hi I have taken seroquel for many years and have never had any reaction when taking both and i have asked my doctor if it's safe all things in moderation
You should ask your doctor before taking Excedrin and ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) together. Excedrin contains acetaminophen (Tylenol), aspirin, and caffeine. Aspirin and ibuprofen are in the same category of medication - non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs). Taking them at the same time ma…y damage the stomach lining and create ulcers, as well as create bleeding issues. (MORE)
Yes you can take them together. . I had lower back surgery 9/11/09. For the 1st month after the surgery I was given percocet. About a week ago after I had finshed the percocet I was prescribed Lorcet 10/650 and Ibuprofen 800 . I take 1 Lorcet 10/650 pill every 6 hours, 1 Ibupofen 800 every 8 ho…urs. So far seems to be working well. (MORE)
Not recommended. It really depends on your anagesics too. Ibuprofen (Brufen) contains Aspirin and any pain relief tablets also contaning aspirin will be damaging to your stomach,even cause intestinal bleeding. I would not take anything else other than Brufen unless under Doctors strict orders and su…pervision. (MORE)
Prozac is an antidepressant of the selective serotonin re-uptakeinhibitor class. It is acceptable to take Ibuprofen if you aretaking Prozac.
Yes you can. In fact, pseudoephedrine HCL (the active incgredient in Sudafed) is combined with ibuprofen in many cold and sinus pills, such as AdvilAdvilÂ® Cold & Sinus [OTC]; DristanÂ® Sinus [OTC]; and MotrinÂ® Cold and Sinus [OTC].
Yes, the two medications can be taken together. Advil is a painreliever, and ibuprofen treats pain and also reduces fever.
Yes both ibuprofen and guaifenesin can be taken together. Ibuprofenand guaifenesin have been combined together in the medication,Entex LA.
Yes, ibuprofen can be taken in conjunction with Depakote as long asit is an over the counter brand. If it is an ibuprofen that ismixed with a form of narcotic pain medication, it can not be takenwith Depakote.
There are no known interactions between these two drugs. Loratadine treats allergies. Ibuprofen is an anti-inflammatory and a pain reliever. They work on separate nerve receptors and do not affect each other.

Yes you can, but who am I to know I am not a pharmacist, I am only going to to tell you that is what the pharmacist told me...

Yes you can. My dr just prescriped them to me together. he said they work better together.
Yes, there is no interaction between those 2 drugs if you don't have contraindications to one of the 2 drugs. The combination of these two meds has been shown to increase bleeding risks, and should cleared by your doctor.
yes, there are no drug interactions between the two... naproxen (similar to ibuprofen) is even added to some oxycodone mixtures ... ibuprofen will at most increase the analgesic effects of oxycotin...
Yes, you may. I am taking both now. Augmentin for a sinus infection and i am also having headaches, so i am taking Ibuprofen. I have asked a pharmacist and they said these 2 drugs can be taken together
Yes, you can. Ibuprofen and Hydrocodone work in different ways. When Hydrocodone is prescribed it is commonly prescribed in combination with acetaminophen (Tylenol), but sometimes prescribed with ibuprofen (Vicoprofen). Hydrocodone is an opioid narcotic that works by blocking opioid pain receptors. …Ibuprofen is not a narcotic and works differently to block pain. Many healthcare providers including myself will tell patients to start off by taking ibuprofen (400 mg). If the pain still persists after 30 minutes or so take the hydrocodone. There is no adverse effects and no reason to worry about taking the medicines together as long as you take them in the recommended/prescribed dosages. (MORE)
Diclofenac and ibuprofen are both in a class of drugs called NSAIDs or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Since they are in the same class, they should not be taken at the same time as the combined dosage may be over the recommended limit.
Yes. Apparently there is no interaction between Ambien (zolpidem) and Motrin(ibuprofen). . Can I take Motrin and Ambien at the same time? Yes, but please don't take the Ambien (zolpidem) any time other than at bedtime. Take the Motrin (ibuprofen) with food or milk. Take both of these only as need…ed. The Ambien is only approved for short term use. Avoid alcohol with this product. . reference:http://www.bjchelpforyourhealth.org/hfyh_content.aspx?id=5486 (MORE)
It's probably OK but why are you checking this site for medical advice? The previous answer was flat out wrong and even dangerous. Never under any circumstances combine acetaminophen(Tylenol and others) with Dayquil or Nyquil. Ibuprofen is probably fine but, really, go check a real medical site. … I agree that you should be checking a medical site but the above answer is very misleading. Acetaminophen IS the active fever reducer in Dayquil so taking a product like Tylenol with Dayquil could lead to overdose of the acetaminophen but not a bad drug interaction. (MORE)
Morphine is a pain killer. Ibuprofen is an anti inflammatory. Since most pain is caused by inflammation, ibuprofen is often considered a pain killer but really it isn't. For those who don't believe it, see an article in Pain Magazine, 1988 Aug;34(2):117-22 where ibuprofen is shown to have the same e…ffect on non inflammatory pain as a placebo. Both drugs can be taken together. My doctor even recommended to me that should the morphine sulfate tablets (10mg) he prescribed me be insufficient, I should take a supplementary dose of ibuprofen. I'm currently recovering from an MRSA abcess in my abdomen. At first I thought it was a boil, and I was taking ibuprofin for the pain. It did nothing at all. After an alarming amount of growth over night, I went to the ER and had it sliced open, and began antibiotic treatment. The first night back from the doc I only used the morphine tablet; It helped but it could have been much better. The second time, I threw in 600mg of ibuprofen with the dosage because the first morphine tablet had given me a headache and the doc had also told me to use that much if the morphing by itself didn't work; I couldn't feel even the slightest bit of pain. If I ever end up in the ER with a morphing drip, I will be asking for ipuprofen at the same time. My personal experience is that they complement each other wonderfully. As for potential liver damage, your doctor will know how much of each you can take at the same time without damaging the liver. It will depend on your personal history, genetics, and the dosages of each drug. I don't know about morphine, but ibuprofen is one of the safest drugs available if you are not allergic to it. There are no long term affects from an ibuprofen overdose. Chronic usage at a lower dose may be a different story. (MORE)
Voltaren and Ibuprofen, both being of the NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) class, should not be taken together. Often drugs of the same class will compete for the same biological pathway, basically cancelling each other out (thus decreasing the pain-relieving effects) and increasing the …side effects. (MORE)
often doctors prescribe prilosec to be taken with ibuprofen in case there is any ulceration problems from the painkiller. The lack of acid caused by the PPI or prilosec means less chance of any problem ( stomach bleeding) from the advil becoming worse.. Acid reduction is not only about stopping hea…rtburn, it is also off label for use with ibuprofen. So, I suppose its ok to take ibuprofen with prilosec for no reason at all as well. (MORE)
Answer . Yes fine but as you normally take them both 4 hours apart take the oxycodapap then the iburofen 2 hours later.
\nBecause ibuprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), the possibility of bleeding may be more likely. You could either try Tylenol, or use naproxen and watch for bruising.
I would say not too not every one will b the same. But i was on predisone. For the 2nd time and was on the 2nd day off and was taking ibp 800 mg 3 every 4 hrs. And it caused me to lose my memory, and flip out bad . And really massed me up. Told my doc after that i was taking the ibp 800mg . Instead,… of the valium cause i was taking two many a day for me i felt. So i took ibp instead for a break. And he told me that predisone, and ibp was dangerous together. So did the pharmacists. I would b careful. (MORE)
Yes that would be fine. Ibuprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory pain medicine. It doesn't interact with cholesterol medicine. It can cause stomach upset, though. Eat something before you take ibuprofen to reduce the heartburn.
the painkilling ingredient in Fioricet is acetaminophen; Ibuprofen is an anti-inflammatory drug that reduces hormones within the body that cause inflammation and pain. Ibuprofen does not interact negatively with the painkiller in Fioricet. Therefore; it is safe to take ibuprofen and Fioricet at the… same time as long as you stay within the recommended dosage for each. (MORE)
Yes because Axert is a triptan class medication and Ibuprofen in a NSAID pain releiver which stands for non steroidal anti-inflammatory drug they are not in the same class so therefore they shouldn't react to each other in a negative way
Yes, I've been taking both for over 8 years with no side effects or problems
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.
It is usually not recommended to take Ketrolac and ibuprofen togather, but in adverse cases such as laproscopy pain, and pain with bone surgery. It is administered with strict medical supervision. The stomach should not be empty as this combination usually causes severe stomach upset. Ibuprofen is …itself enough or ketrolac alone can be given in cases of mild pains depending on the pros and cons. (MORE)
No, you should avoid this combination as long as ibuprofen might interfer with INR and blood coagulation. You have to use Tylenol (acetaminophen/paracetamol) instead. If you use an anti inflammatory drug, it should be done with medical supervision (INR tests)
Yes as long as you are not on any blood thinners (Coumadin/Warfarin, Lovenox, Heparin, etc...). Ibuprofen is an analgesic of the NSAID category. Augmentin (Amoxicillin w/ clavulanate) is an antibiotic of the Penicillin category. Warning: Do not take Ibuprofen or Augmentin if you have a history o…f bleeding disorders or are currently taking anticoagulants. Warning: Do not take Augmentin if you have a history of Penicillin allergies. (MORE)
No!! they are in the same drug family ( NSAID's) so the effect would be pretty much the same as doubling up on the voltarin, it could cause stomach ulcers, kidney problems, and possibly temporary high blood pressure
Yes, you can take Ibuprofren (Motrin) - Advil but you cannot take Aspirin containing pain relivers or sulfates like Pepto Bismol.
According to information online - yes as it is herbal and has no side effects.
Yes you can unless you have any allergic reaction with either drug, then consult with your doctor.
Absolutely. Keflex (cephalexin) has been prescribed for decades, and has never shown an ability to interact with ibuprofen.
Probably. Regular dose of ibuprofen and whatever your current use of speed. Both are processed in the liver so at some point, it may become over loaded or damaged enough that is fails. Too much ibuprofen will do that on it's own and speed causes the whole body to be used up fairly quickly.
Yes, and I can understand why you'd want to. There are no drug interactions or potential issues I can see with taking both together. Just make sure you are taking both medications as recommended by you doctor and pharmacist.
Good question, and yes you can take both together.. they are both small pills, and should fit in your mouth.. I've even done 5 different pills at one time.
