Yes. It's okay to take Ibuprofen, which is an NSAID with Gabapentin. However, before you do take the combination it is best to check with your doctor & ask for their consent.
I take Gabapentin (800 mg three times daily) and tried adding Ibuprofen to it. My experience was that it really didn't help reducing pain, so I just take Gabapentin by itself. What I've found is that--especially at night when I need to sleep--it generally takes about an hour for Gabapentin to kick in, sometimes a bit longer. Pain really sucks, only--at least for the most part--Gabapentin has proven to me to be the best deal in town.
