Dr. Mark A. Tosca answered:

Have multiple heart attacks in family history. Taking 25mg Atenonlol & 81 mg baby aspirin nightly. Can I also take Advil or ibuprofen for headaches?

Yes

Aspirin
All anti-inflammatory medications increase risk for a cardiovascular event (MI, Stroke, Death). These risk seems to be associated with higher doses. So it's best if you take the lowest possible dose for a short duration. The other concern with NSAIDs and aspirin is increase risk for GI bleed. If you have risk factor for this you have to be cautious and may want to take some Zantac with it.

Can i take advil or aleve or aspirin or naproxe? IAM ALLERGIC FROM IBUPROFEN

See PCP re meds ?

Advil
Advil and Ibuprofen are the same thing so if you have a true allergy to the product then you cannot take an NSAID till cleared by an allergist. Aleve and Naproxen are the same product, they are also NSAIDs while Aspirin belongs to a different family of drugs and can also be used if deemed appropriate by your PCP. See your PCP to clarify as to what meds you can and cannot take.
