Yes: Assuming you're not allergic to either. Feldene is an NSAID or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen. It can cause stomach ulcers and kidney damage but it's not guaranteed to do so. Paracetamol is the international name for Acetaminophen sold in the states as tylenol (acetaminophen) which can cause liver damage when taken in excess. In low-to-moderate doses, both can be used together.
