    Key thing is the alternation of doses over a 24hr period, without exceeding recommended daily dose of either.

    You can take a normal does of paracetamol and of ibuprofen together. It's best to take one then wait a couple of hours before taking the other though. Just make sure you follow the info on each pack for things like timing and dose.
    This is also the sort of thing you can ask a pharmacist about so if you want some more professional advice than TSR you can call a pharmacy.

    Here's some info on it by the NHS too:
