Ciprofloxacin and Advil (ibuprofen) pm can both be taken at the same time?

Ciprofloxacin and Advil (ibuprofen) pm can both be taken at the same time?

Not really: As long as your kidney are ok, you can take advil (ibuprofen). My issue is the 'pm' is diphenhydramine. There is no reason for you to take it unless you are having an allergic reaction. Diphenhydramine can cause tardive dyskinesia, which doesn't have treatment. So you can take it, but I don't think you should. Straight advil (ibuprofen) is fine. ...Read more

I have been prescribed ciprofloxacin, ibuprofen and anti-spasmodics 2x a day for 5 days. Is it safe for me to also be taking acyclovir 5 times daily?

Polypharmacy: Acyclovir is usually prescribed for use 5 times a day in treating herpes simplex and varicella zoster (shingles). Ibuprofen will increase the level or effect of acyclovir and should be used cautiously. Ciprofloxacin used at high doses increases risk of central nervous system stimulation and can cause seizures. Please indicate which antispasmodics. ...Read more
