Its never a good idea to mix meds and alcohol. Both these things can irritate your stomach lining.

How fond are you of your liver? Both alcohol and Ibuprofen are very hard on the liver. I understand a drink occasionally, and I have included the DC advice below. Best of luck to you!!

The directions on the bottle say not to so I am wondering why you are asking? Please don't go against the warnings... you risk long-term injury to yourself and your liver or worse. So, the direct answer is "NO".

Yes! Just don't go overboard on either. A few glasses of wine with a few Ibuprofen should be no problem if you're generally healthy. I wouldn't recommend hard liquor or high doses of Ibuprofen, however.
