I would like to offer a different opinion. Although there is a minor DDI

Expert:  Dr. Cooper replied 4 months ago.

Occasional use of Ibuprofen along with Priadel is not a reason for big concern. They have drug drug interaction in theory when Ibuprofen is used daily every 6-8 hours. But if used once a day for a few days till pain is gone, then no need to worry at all.

Rest assured you can safely use Ibuprofen 1-2 times a day for a 3-5 days without any problems.

Another good alternative to Ibuprofen would be Nabumatone. Same family, less Drud-drug interactions.
