Can you mix Advil (ibuprofen) pm and ativan? I took .5mg of ativan around 6pm. I want to take an Advil (ibuprofen) pm around 11pm. Is that safe?

Drug Interaction: Advil (ibuprofen) PM oral and Ativan oral both increase sedation and drowsiness. Always talk to your doctor before starting any new prescription or over-the-counter medication or dietary supplement.
