I had a couple of stents placed in my heart a few years ago. I was told at the time that I should use tylenol for pain, nothing else. Since the surgery I've been taking low dose aspirin, metropolol, and atrovastatin. However, when I had my latest Rx filled, my Dr. did not prescribe atrovastatin and has me taking 800 mg of ibuprofen every 8 hours. Something seems wrong to me...

Well, if he/she is aware of all the other meds then I would say go with it. I had this strength when I had complication with wisdom teeth being pulled along with other health issues at the time. Always best to ask the Dr when there's a concern such as this, because that is who knows your individual need. I would urge you to check with Dr about it.
