Can I Take Ibuprofen While Taken Clarithromycin?

i take ibuprofen 400mg to remove back pain i have just been put on clarithromycin 500mg for a week is it still ok to take the ibuprofen

Answer

I checked out that interaction in an online drug interaction program and it did not reveal any significant interactions. One is an antibiotic and the other is a pain reliever- they are two very different drugs with different chemical makeups. Its always best to check with your pharmacist or doctor, however.
