Ask your provider: Sorry, but without knowing your medical history, reason why you want to take those medications and being your health care provider of record, we can't tell you what medications to take. All medications have risks associated with them. You need to discuss this matter with your own health care provider.

Absolutely not: Combining 2 different nsaids at once can significantly increase the risk of side-effects including ulcers and reduction of kidney function.
