Can Ibuprofen be taken while on Cyclobenzaprine?

Took cyclobenzaprine 5 mg for back spasms (which have ceased); fell today (black ice) flat on my back, slammed my head on the concrete, took a pill because I knew I d be sore (& possibly hurt my back again). Question: have a raging headache; could I also take a 600 mg ibuprofen too?

Yes, ibuprofen can be taken along with Cyclobenzaprine. Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) commonly used to reduce fever and treat pain or inflammation caused by many conditions such as headache, toothache, back pain, arthritis, or minor injury.

Since there's no documented harmful interaction between the two, hence ibuprofen can be taken safely along with muscle relaxant Cyclobenzaprine. I also advise you to consult a doctor for the post-traumatic headache.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
