I have taken venlafaxine and ibuprofen together on the advice of a pharmacist. After about a week I started having stomach bloating, really dark stools, nausea and diarrhea for 3-4 days. I just found out last night that these can be side effects from using these two drugs together. I am feeling fine now, should I go to the doctor? And how urgent is it? Or should I just mention it next time I go in and stop using ibuprofen?

You should stop taking the drug as it showing gastrointestinal bleeding.
