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.

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
