How do you recommend spacing taking aspirin and ibuprofen, so that the ibuprofen does not interfere with the aspirin's benefits?
If one needs to be on a large amount of ibuprofen is it totally eliminating all the benefits of aspirin or simply reducing them? Is there a way to successfully take both?
The biggest interaction between ibuprofen and aspirin is GI upset. If you are not having any GI upset then there is no reason not to take them together with food. There may be an interaction in patients with heart failure and you doctor can tell you if this applies to you.
