Drug Interactions
Ibuprofen may reduce the antihypotensive effect of antihypertensive. It may potentiate the effect of lithium and digoxin when given concomitantly. Diuretics may increase the risk of nephrotoxicity of NSAIDs.
Acetylsalicylic acid/Aspirin: As with other products containing NSIADs, concomitant administration of ibuprofen and acetylsalicylic acid/aspirin is not generally recommended because of the potential of increased adverse effects.
Experimental data suggest that ibuprofen may competitively inhibit the effect of low dose acetylsalicylic acid/aspirin on platelet aggregation when they are dosed concomitantly. Some pharmacodynamics studies show that when single doses of ibuprofen 400 mg were taken within 8 h before or within 30 min after immediate release aspirin dosing (81 mg), a decreased effect of acetylsalicylic acid/aspirin on the formation of thromboxane or platelet aggregation occurred. Although there are uncertainties regarding extrapolation of these data to the clinical situation, the possibility that regular, long-term use of ibuprofen may reduce the cardioprotective effect of low-dose acetylsalicylic acid/aspirin cannot be excluded. No clinically relevant effect is considered to be likely for occasional ibuprofen use.
