No. these are both NSAID medications. Taking both at the same time greatly increases your chances for gastric (stomach) bleeding. You need to choose one or the other. If one is not enough to relieve your pain, then you need to talk to your dr about other options.
I seem to remember answering this question a few days ago, of course I may have been dreaming. No, don't take them together. They are the same kind of medications (nsaid). If for no other reason then you'll tear up your stomach.
