Hello I have recently developed an allergy to ibuprofen and aspirin I was wondering specifically what other nsaids can I take?
Allergy : We would not try other nsaid's if you are allergic to the two. I would recommend tylenol (acetaminophen) as the next option. Make sure what you are calling an allergy actually is an allergy. Talk to your doctor. Stomach upset and nausea is not a n allergy while hives or trouble breathing is. ...Read more
