Hi, Thanks for your question. I'm Dr. Hasan and I'll try to help you. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want. There is a moderate risk of getting abnormal bleeding, stomach ulcer and black stools if you take ibuprofen with solumedrol. It's not necessary but to be on safe side, you should avoid taking ibuprofen. However you can take two tablets of Tylenol three times a day safely for pain relief. I wish you good luck and that you get well soon. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done. You can come back here to ask anything even after you have rated the answer. I will be glad to help you always. Regards

Hi thanks for the response, but I believe that being on auto-immune suppressant drug (Imuran) that I am unable to take Tylenol so that is why I am trying to figure out if Ibuprofen is safe?

Thanks for your input. There is no drug interaction between imuran and Tylenol. You can take Tylenol in your case safely. I reassure you. I wish you good luck and that you get well soon.
