I am taking one 25 mg Acitretin 1 x day for psoriasis; 500 mg sulfasalazine 3 x day for IBS and having significant back pain from arthritis. I would like to take 2 200 mg ibuprofen 2 x day for arthritis pain in back. Can I safely add ibuprofen?
Can I take acitretin, sulfasalazine and ibuprofen together?

Interactions between your drugs
Applies to: ibuprofen, sulfasalazine
SulfaSALAzine may occasionally cause kidney problems, and combining it with other medications that can also affect the kidney such as ibuprofen may increase that risk. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns. Your doctor may be able to prescribe alternatives that do not interact, or you may need a dose adjustment or more frequent monitoring to safely use both medications. You should seek medical attention if you experience signs and symptoms that may suggest kidney damage such as nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, increased or decreased urination, sudden weight gain or weight loss, fluid retention, swelling, shortness of breath, muscle cramps, tiredness, weakness, dizziness, confusion, and irregular heart rhythm. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
