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
to keep calm no matter how much it hurts , and stay away from stressful people if i can .
I've had gastric bypass and I'm not able to take Ibuprofen an I have a peptic ulcer that acts up a lot of the time
@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
Thank you. I am now looking for a different pain killer as I could not carry on with the co-codamol as they were also making me really nauseous. Doc says my only option is paracetamol but they are not even taking the edge off the pain, so I am just struggling on with no tablets at all. I am sure there must be something I can take, I feel my doctor is only looking at the cost implications.
Hi my doctor told me the only tablet I could take with ibuprofen is paracetamol so I would not try it
can you take Ibuprofen as i have same prob as rosemary narproxen was making me sick
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
Your welcome @A MyChronicPainTeam Member xx
Thank you so much x
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
