Yes both are safe together. One is an anti-inflammatory and the other is a muscle relaxer. I was on both of them for w years. The muscle relaxer will most likely make you tired. The ibuprofen can upset your stomach so take with food.

I strongly urge anyone mixing anything to: Consult doc/pharm rep and start getting to know the PDR (phys desk ref). As for me, I can take both but... sneakers up in 10 minus 1 and counting. Both loosen you up. I'm not a baseball player but I do most things w/the "3 strikes and your out" method. If Doc/Pharm Rep/PDR say no or are wishy-washy, then No, your out! If all are middle of the road or positive yes, then hit the ball and go to first base. Remember, 1 base at a time and in order. Last but not least, all three of the aforementioned are "FREE" consults and take just minutes total for your answers. Good luck B.

Hi buttascotch,
I've taken ibuprofen with my cyclobenzaprine on many occasions without any problems, so yes. Just make certain you've some food in that tummy, girl, don't want ibuprof eating a hole in your stomach.
Best wishes,

Excellent answer!!! Sometimes one has to know this information to be proactive in one's healthcare.
It seems that the docs don't always check med lists thus prescribing blindly. Always do your research for contraindications. It is imperative to your total health.
