In brief: Medically safe

It is safe to give both medications at the same time, but ibuprofen should only be given every 6-8 hours and acetaminophen 4-6 h apart, so subsequent doses need to be staggered.
It is preferred that you give only one med at a time and see the response instead of giving them together.
