Does anyone know if I can take Ibuprofen with cocodamol. My doctor has taken me off naproxen because I was feeling really nauseous all the time so I wondered if I could take Ibuprofen instead

Ho @A MyChronicPainTeam Member sorry it won't let me tag you? But yes it is safe to take those two meds together i too take them because one is a pain killer the other an anti inflammatory so yes that's ok xxx

@A MyChronicPainTeam Member there are two strengths of cocodamol one 30/500 which I suspect your GP prescribed you they also make my sister my mum and my daughter very sickly and they can't take them but the GP can prescribe these as a 8/500 which are better and stronger then paracetamol alone check the meds if they were 30/500 I would go back and ask for the 8/500 version touch wood you wasn't prescribed this strength already .Let me know how you get on and good luck Tina x

Yes @A MyChronicPainTeam Member you can take these both together. Theyre k m two different types of painkillers. Ibuprofen and Naproxen are anti-inflammatorys. Usually if a doc prescribes Naproxen they usually give you a tablet like Omeprazole or Lansoprazole to help protect the stomach lining. Hope that helps!xx
