nurofen and alcohol

Announcements Posted on
    • Thread Starter

    Hm..well I have had a headache all day so have just taken 2 nurofen..however, it's my boyfriends 21st tonight, which means I will be drinking.

    How safe is this? taking into account that I've only had 2 nurofen at half 4, and wont be drinking until around 9pm.

    Sorry, I'm being a bit paranoid!

    Perfectly fine.

    I've done it plenty of times before and i'm not dead yet. Tis probably not the best idea though.

    You'll be fine, just don't take any tonight washed down with alcohol. If you are worried, switch to water or juice for a while to give your poor liver a rest
    Have fun tonight

    I've done it plenty of times. You'll be fine :bigsmile:

    I took anti-flu tablets before doing shots a few weeks back and I felt like I was tripping out for a bit. Still alive though so I'm guessing its okay.

    You'll be fine. Taking aspirin in close proximity to alcohol can cause some stomach problems, but AFAIK Nureofen's classic painkillers are simply ibuprofen.
