Don't. I had a fall a week ago. I am on ibuprofen 800. I went to an event last night and had a couple of glasses of wine. When I got back to our hotel, i took my ibuprofen. Within a half hour my heart was racing. I could feel my heart pumping. I will not do that again.

Yes! Just don't go overboard on either. A few glasses of wine with a few Ibuprofen should be no problem if you're generally healthy. I wouldn't recommend hard liquor or high doses of Ibuprofen, however.

The directions on the bottle say not to so I am wondering why you are asking? Please don't go against the warnings... you risk long-term injury to yourself and your liver or worse. So, the direct answer is "NO".

How fond are you of your liver? Both alcohol and Ibuprofen are very hard on the liver. I understand a drink occasionally, and I have included the DC advice below. Best of luck to you!!

Sorry, I hit enter intend of edit to delete the ads, such as chemotherapy. That is NOT part of the information on Ibuprofen, but it didn't come out in the different colors either.

Its never a good idea to mix meds and alcohol. Both these things can irritate your stomach lining.
