pain relief

If i take co-codamol 30/500mg x2, in addition to 200mg ibuprofen x2, is it safe to take asprin on top of that? Would that be too much for my liver to cope with?

    Dont take aspirin.

    Its the same type of drug as ibuprofen so you shouldnt use them both.

    What pain do you have?
    If you've got 30/500 co-codamol then you must have seen a doctor? If you need ibuprofen on top of that and you still need more relief then id get back to the docs.

    taking both ibuprofen and aspirin triples or quadrupes (cant remember) chances of stomach problems. its probably ok for a one off though.

    What have you done?

    I'd be tempted to increase the ibuprofen dose slightly as long as you're taking it with food....
