  • If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose and resume your usual dosing schedule.
  • Do not double the dose to catch up.

Drug Interactions
  • Your healthcare professionals (e.g., doctor or pharmacist) may already be aware of any possible drug interactions and may be monitoring you for it.
  • Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicine before checking with them first.This drug should not be used with the following medications because very serious interactions may occur: cidofovir, ketorolac, naltrexone, MAO inhibitors (e.g., furazolidone, isocarboxazid, linezolid, moclobemide, phenelzine, procarbazine, selegiline, tranylcypromine).Avoid using MAO inhibitors within 14 days before or after using this medication.If you are currently using any of these medications listed above, tell your doctor or pharmacist before starting this medication.Before using this medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all prescription and nonprescription/herbal products you may use, especially of: anti-platelet drugs (e.g., cilostazol, clopidogrel), oral bisphosphonates (e.g., alendronate), "blood thinners" (e.g., enoxaparin, heparin, warfarin), corticosteroids (e.g., prednisone), cyclosporine, anti-seizure drugs (e.g., carbamazepine, phenobarbital), anticholinergic medications (e.g., atropine, scopolamine), drugs that lower blood pressure (e.g., diuretics such as hydrochlorothiazide and furosemide, ACE inhibitors such as captopril, angiotensin II receptor antagonists such as losartan, and beta-blockers such as metoprolol), other medications for pain (e.g., butorphanol, buprenorphine, pentazocine, tramadol), SSRI antidepressants (e.g., fluoxetine, sertraline), muscle relaxants (e.g., carisoprodol, methocarbamol), pyridostigmine, sodium oxybate, lithium, methotrexate, pemetrexed, probenecid.Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you also take drugs that cause drowsiness such as: antihistamines that cause drowsiness (e.g., diphenhydramine), anti-anxiety drugs (e.g., diazepam), medicine for sleep (e.g., zolpidem), psychiatric medicines (e.g., phenothiazines such as chlorpromazine, or tricyclics such as amitriptyline), tranquilizers.Check the labels on all your medicines (e.g., cough-and-cold products) because they may contain drowsiness-causing ingredients.
  • Ask your pharmacist about the safe use of those products.Check all prescription and nonprescription medicine labels carefully for other pain/fever drugs (NSAIDs such as aspirin, celecoxib, naproxen).
  • These drugs are similar to ibuprofen, so taking one of these drugs while also taking ibuprofen may increase your risk of side effects.
  • Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details.However, if your doctor has prescribed low doses of aspirin to prevent heart attack or stroke (usually at dosages of 81-325 milligrams a day), you should continue to take the aspirin.
  • Daily use of ibuprofen may decrease aspirin's ability to prevent heart attack/stroke.
  • Talk to your doctor about using a different medication (e.g., acetaminophen) to treat pain/fever.
  • If you must take ibuprofen, talk to your doctor about possibly taking immediate-release aspirin (not enteric-coated) while also taking the ibuprofen dose apart from your aspirin dose.
  • Do not increase your daily dose of aspirin or change the way you take aspirin/other medications without your doctor's approval.
