Can u take paracetamol and ibuprofen together?

I think you'll find that Ibuprofen contains paracetamol and so you can not take them together, as too much paracetamol is very bad for you.

Read the packet of Ibuprofen and if its contains paracetamol it should tell you. Don't be tempted to take them together.

It would be best if you asked your pharmacist this.

Yes, but beware the Dwarf.....

maxine k
yes you can up to eight 500mg paracetamol in 24 hours and up to three 400mg of ibuprofen daily but be carefull when taking paracetamols as they can be precent in other medicines so dont overtake always take ibuprofen with food not on an empty stomach

Learn how to get rid of the cause of the pain
I use a chiropractor and massage therapist with the principles below
Much pain is from muscles below is an example of what may help (based on headaches).
Begin with a couple swigs of molasses or a couple of bananas daily - magnesium (which regulates many things in the body) and potassium (a needed building block for muscles).
Drink at least 1/2 gallons of water per day. Running a body low on water is like running a car low on oil is the analogy the head of neurology at UCDavis told my husband about 10 years ago.

Now to the cause - muscles - your back, neck shoulders and head have tender spots. They are knots in the fibers of the muscles called trigger points. It makes the muscles tight which makes them press on nerves and other things causing the pain.

The cure - start with a professional massage, you will also want to go back over any place you can get to 6-12 times per session up to 6 times per day rubbing (or lightly scratching on your head) every where that is tender until the knots go away. The place where the skull connects to the spine press up under the edge of the skull (to get to those muscles).

For more information read The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook by Davies. It teaches what to do and where the pain comes from.

Yes you can,but the less chemicals you put in your body the better-especially at the same time.

Mrs Bond
yes but not at the same time. If you take paracetamol at 3pm you can take ibuprofen at 5pm they should always be taken 2 hours apart.

brandi g
yes u can, but to be on the safe side i would not take them togeather. You should also eat, and i want to tell you to be really careful with the ibuprofen because it is really bad to make your stomache bleed, and it even caused my aunts kidneys to shut down.


Ask a doctor...mixing medicines can be harmful. I once heard of some one who did that (not with same medicine) and burned a hole in their stomache!

well ibuprofen is an anti-inflamatary as well as a pain killer and paracetamol is a pain killer but your best seeking professional advice

Yes, my doctor prescribed the same for meand told me to take them together before or after food.

debbie t
Yes you can. I bought cold relief capsules in my local pharmacist's last week and they also sold me some ibuprofen and said they can be taken together.

your best asking the chemist but i believe there is a pain killer that has both paracetamol and ibuprofen in it i dont know the name cos i can only use co-dyemol (i know thats spelt i not the worlds best speller sorry) good luck

Yes you can. they are completely different drugs and have different actions and different side effects.
Read the fine print though, some of the side effects may apply to you.
And if you need them often, better see your MD

im 100000% sure u can coz i was prescibed them when i had my tonsils out but make sure u eat some food first

You should leave it 2 hours in between.

bernie c
Yes you can as long as you don't exceed the maximum dosage in 24 hours 8 paracetamol and if not prescribed no more than 4 x 200 mg of Ibuprofen. I take 8 co-codamol and 1200mg of Ibuprofen they are prescribed.

To be on the perfectly safe side, call NHS Direct first to double check on 0845 46 47.

The BudMiester
Yes, but I`d have something to eat with them, as they are both stomach irritants.

Dolly Blue
Yes you can, however I usually leave a 2 hour gap between,!!!

Yes you can - I usually leave it an hour before you taken the second lot.

Hi yes you can take both together as they,re not in the same painkiller group, as long as you take the stated dose on each box you shouldn,t have any problems. If in doubt ask at a chemist, A

one dose of each and take nothing else for at least 8 hours and it should help.

Janet C
Yes you can ibuprofen is not a painkiller it is an anti inflammatory tablet so it is safe to take the 2 together in fact you are supposed to take the 2 together

Yes they are totally different, so you can safely take them together, at the usual 4 hour intervals.

Eg. 2 of each pill at 4pm, then repeat at 8pm, etc.

definately.... they work better together.
No more than 8 x 500mgs of paracetamol per 24 hours though
and no more than 3 x 400mgs of ibuprofen.
