Can i take ibuprofen, colchicine, miralax (polyethylene glycol) and prilosec together. If not how long do I separate?

Can i take ibuprofen, colchicine, miralax (polyethylene glycol)  and prilosec together. If not how long do I separate?

Prilosec should: always be taken first in the day, 30 minutes before the first meal and preferably by itself. You may take the Miralax (polyethylene glycol) anytime, but Ibuprofen and colchicine are hard on the stomach (read: makes heartburn worse) and should be taken after meals. I would say 30 minutes after a meal. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Make sure you use ibuprophen on a full stomach and avoid any alcohol. If you have any abdominal pain, stop the ibuprophen immediately. ...Read more

Ibuprofen: Iboprofen can and often does do this. If you're taking this combination for gout, perhaps some other medical approach can be more helpful long-run. Probenecid is old-fashioned but worth considering. Best wishes. ...Read more
