If you have: no kidney problems that you are aware of, or do not have diabetes or prostate problems, then you are welcome to take ibuprofen in addition to narcotics. Be warned that there are a small percentage of people who have sedation as a side effect if they take ibuprofen. So if that happens to you, be extra careful as ibuprofen together with morphine can over sedate you. Thanks for trusting in HT.
