Can you take nurofen & co-codamol together?

That's it really, I've tried google but can't find the answers.

i think you can, as they are different types of pain-killers, but not sure how much of each you would be able to take.

Mrs JB.....I was on codeine, paracetomol and ibuprofen after my c-section so yes, OK to take together.

I found though that if you take the dose of ibuprofen between the doses of co-codamol, it keeps the pain at a manageable level, rather then taking them at the same time.

if the neurofen doesn't contain paracetamol and I don't think it does it's fine. Are you OK? Make sure you eat or have some milk before this little lot though!

Thanks lovelys. I was asking the world of knowledge for my bf who had a tooth out this avo. The injection has worn off and she is now in agony.

Good tip about taking them at intervals, i'll let her know. Thank you.
