Taking Aspirin, Ibuprofen, With Supplements
Question: Are there any supplements I should avoid when taking aspirin or ibuprofen?
Answer: Aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), like naproxen (Aleve), celecoxib (Celebrex) and diclofenac (Arthrotec, Voltaren) can be affected by taking supplements and can affect your ability to absorb certain vitamins and minerals. Some supplements, for example, can increase the risk of bleeding or stomach irritation associated with the use of these drugs. On the other hand, certain supplements may be beneficial for people taking NSAIDS.
