Hi, I do not believe you actually have to stop taking ibuprofen but their are definite risks if you do. There is a moderate interaction listed: https://www.drugs.com/interactions-check.php?interaction_list_id=183027224&drug_list=705-360,1310-0 that states that you are at risk of gastro-intestinal bleeding but that requires the input and advice from a doctor about selecting a safer smaller dose or an alternative medication. There are alternatives to taking Ibuprofen which is a non steroidal anti inflammatory drug (NSAID) that you can safely take.
