Hi, can you take nurofen plus with solpadol? I have fractured my foot and was prescribed difene 50mg capsules, but are making me ill. Can I take nurofen plus 200mg/12.8mg as an anti-inflammatory as well as the solpadol 500mg/30mg I was prescribed

No, you shouldn't: Both Nurofen Plus and Solpadol 500/30 contain codeine and an aspirin-like product, so you would be taking more of both than your doctor recommended. My advice is to stick with just Solpadol 500/30. If that alone doesn't control your pain, please contact your doctor for advice. Besides pain meds, they are other ways to get pain relief from an injury like this. ...Read more

Please see a doctor urgently, I mean now.

Ibuprofen Use: Well, it depends on which alka-seltzer plus was given. If it was the one with Tylenol, (acetaminophen) then yes he can have another 200mg of ibuprofen at this time.

I bought relora plus for my anxiety and stress from a health store called natures source. Am I able to take an Advil (ibuprofen) while taking these natural pills?

Unknown: there is no good evidence that Relora works for Weight loss or anxiety, despite what is written on the Internet. A good review of the minimal amount of study that has been done is at supplement-geek.com/relora. Because it is not been studied, it is not possible to tell whether there could be an interaction between ibuprofen and the active ingredients in Relora. I would avoid it. Good luck. ...Read more
