Hi Nic,
There is no problem taking these drugs together.
Ibuprofen is a NSAID.
Cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril) is a muscle relaxant.

However, a study showed that there was no added advantage in taking the Ibuprofen in addition to the Flexeril.
Perhaps you can take it more frequently up to 3 x/day.
Ibuprofen needs to be taken with food as it is know to cause GI upset.

Be safe and ask your pharmacist. He has access to your drug profile. He would be able to check all of your meds for interactions.
Best wishes
