NSAID use: Acetaminophen can be used in conjunction with NSAIDs simultaneously or in a staggered fashion as long as you don't exceed individual dosage and aggregate daily dosing restrictions. Two NSAIDs should not be taken together. To answer your question directly: wait 6-8 hours before ibuprofen and anytime with acetaminophen (max 1000 mg/dose and 4000 mg/day and even at these doses can be toxic)
