You shouldn't be taking both of those together. They are both NSAIDs.

Ibuprofen and meloxican both belong to the same therapeutic class, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). NSAIDs help to reduce pain, and help to decrease swelling and inflammation. Taking multiple NSAIDs together can lead to gastointestinal problems so you are best to wait until the effects of the ibuprofen wear off, which would be in around 6 hours time.
