Do you have a favourite pain killer that you reach for when a headache, toothache or back pain strikes? What happens when the pain doesn’t seem to ease? A really common question that I’ve been asked is whether you can take paracetamol and ibuprofen at the same time. Is it ok to do that? Is it dangerous to take ibuprofen if you are already on paracetamol? It’s great that people are wary and questioning when it comes to drugs because certain drug interactions can be harmful.
