In brief: Acetominophen

Acetominaphen can be taken with virtually no risk.
I would take it by itself.

In brief: Question for ur doc.

You are being treated for a specific medical problem, with two meds that each have signifacant effects and side effects.
Certainly you ought not take any antninflammatory meds such as Aspirin or ibuprofen. Drink a lot of non-alcohol beverages, and call the treating physician to inform you have a headache, and follow his/her instructions.
