Hi, i do care for your concern.
The first drug you mentioned is an opioid analgesic, and the later is NSAID.
Although both these drugs belong to different class and have very little interaction between then, it is not to be self administered.
I would advise
To use the present drugs, and consult your physician for further pain management.
Hope I have answered your question. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
Thank you.
