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

No: There are 6 classes of nsaids. Aspirin (salicylic acid group) & Ibuprofen (proprionic acid group) are in 2 different classes. You may not get hives if you take an NSAID from one of the other classes. Tread carefully though. Repeat exposure to a med you are allergic to can lead to more serious side effects (breathing/swallowing troubles). Consider seeing allergist for testing. ...Read more

FDA recently stated non-aspirin NSAID can increase risk of heart attack and stroke. As a user of Advil, (ibuprofen) I take 400mg a few times a week or less for headache, some weeks not at all. Should I worry?

NSAIDS: NSAIDS are associated with such side effects. In your case, you are young and NSAIDs may not cause heart attack or stroke at this stage. People with underlying atherosclerosis and with plaque formation in their arteries are at higher risk. If you can avoid, that is preferable as Routine use of NSAIDS may contribute to gastritis, peptic ulcer, kidney damage etc. ...Read more

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

ASA Allergy: That is a difficult question to answer. Many people allergic to asa, especially asthma and respiratory or swelling symptoms are also allergic to most of the nsaids (advil, motrin, ibuprofen, naproxen). It would be safest to meet with your allergist to discuss your past reactions and the safety of using. And to consider an oral challenge. ...Read more

Can i take advil, (ibuprofen) lisinopril , and aspirin?

Can i take advil, (ibuprofen) lisinopril , and aspirin?

Be careful: Generally I do not recommend this combination. Ibuprofen and Lisinopril together can trigger kidney failure especially if the patient becomes dehydrated. Secondly long term use of Ibuprofen can actually raise blood pressure reducing the effectiveness of the lisinopril. That being said, it is usually ok to use for 2-3 days, or every other day but only 400 -800 mg a day of ibuprofen. ...Read more
