If i get a few tiny hives from both ibuprofen and aspirin, does that mean i can't take any nsaids at all? Also, i get hives without any meds at times

Can i take Advil (ibuprofen) 2 hrs after taking aspirin?

Can i take Advil (ibuprofen) 2 hrs after taking aspirin?

It's fine.: In the future, try to take them with food due to the adverse effect on the stomach lining causing heartburn and irritation. And also space them about 4-6 jours apart because one counteracts the other by latching on to the same area on the platelets thus negating each other effect.Have a great weekend! http://www.Sharecare.Com/health/nonsteroidal-anti-inflammatory-drugs/is-safe-take-nsaid-aspirin. ...Read more
