Can I take Ibuprofen with Aluminium and Calcium based foods? or antacids?
You can take Ibuprofin with antacids, but they reduce the effectiveness of Ibuprofin and some other medications. I've always heard that milk and Ibuprofin don't go together. Once I was trying to do that, and after a fews weeks I felt like I was kicked in the stomach. I was thinking that milk would soothe my stomach. If you don't have stomach trouble, you can eat what you want. I was drinking lots of milk- since then my stomach became extremely sensitive to Ibuprofin- Are you asking because your stomach is bothering you. Also this site has a way of checking medications and food interactions. Just go to the drug or medicine tab-and do a search for Ibuprofin. Good luck
There are no food interactions listed for ibuprofen. The only thing that this site warns against is taking ibuprofen with a NSAID. It would not be affected by milk or other calcium or aluminum based antacids.
