Nancy Turner,

 

Thanks for your question. 

 

Lipitor is a statin class of medication used in the treatment of elevated cholesterol.  Advil, or ibuprofen, is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication available over the counter, as well as prescription doses, that is used for minor pain, headache, inflammation, and fever.  There is no drug-drug interaction between these two medications and should pose no added risk if taken together.   

 

I hope this has been helpful.

 

Martin Cane, M.D.

I have AF and take Coumadin. Therefore I cannot take aspirin. Does Tylenol abate side effects of Niaspan?
