Is what safe?: Drinking too much? Being tipsy? A toothache? Taking ibuprofen? Hmmm.......If you normally are not allergic and can take ibuprofen, it should be fine. See a dentist for that toothache. Do not drive, operate any machinery or engage in any activity where you might get hurt while impaired.

Yes, you can: If you’re taking ibuprofen, after the alcohol consumption, take the lowest dose necessary to alleviate your symptoms. Alcohol can interfere with ibuprofen, making it less effective. Of course, stop drinking altogether while taking medication. See your dentist ASAP for dental treatment.
