Yes: NSAIDS can be taken 2 hours after Aspirin. Though be aware of the increased ulcerogenic effects

See below: If you are taking aspirin long-term for the purpose of protection (like preventing heart attack, stroke, or similar events) -- which is *not* usual in someone 32 years old, but I want to cover my bases -- then you should not take meloxicam. Otherwise, the recommendation is to take meloxicam 2-4 hours after and at least 8 hours before aspirin.
