I took 2 x 500mg of paracetomol about an hour ago, but the pain is still there, can I take 2 x ibruprofen?

Not sure I want to explain why I have a head pain.... I wasn't even drunk when I decided to smack it off the living room door ... hmm

Yes, you can.

Was it a very hard thunk?

Yes you can. You're not pg or anything like that are you?

Have been prescribed para and ibu together by several GPs.

Nooo not pg or any health issues

Should be ok then. If the pain continues or you have any other adverse reaction e.g. vomiting however, call your GP straight away.

Also check packet to make sure one product doesn't contain the other hence leading to an overdose of one or the other.

BTW my advice is from personal experience rather than any medical training.

Hope you feel better soon.
