I just had 3 wisdom teeth pulled and one was infected. The surgeon put me on this drug. And said I could take my 800mg Ibu as directed. But the instructions say do not take with narcotics. Also the pharmacist said not to take in any dairy during the 5day course!
I assume the drug you are talking about is clindamycin?
You can safely take Clindamycin and Ibuprofen together. Be sure to take both medicines with a glass of water and the ibuprofen is best taken with food. Ibuprofen is not a narcotic. It is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug.
I think your pharmacist may have got confused, it is perfectly safe to take dairy products while taking Clindamycin.
