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. I am sorry but you shouldn't take them together with just 3 hours gap because during this 3 hours both of these drugs will be present in your blood and this will cause drug interaction resulting in dizziness, drowsiness, confusion etc. So please avoid doing this. Take them as prescribed. 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

Even if I'm just going back to bed? My nec k/back is hurting and I didn't want to wait. If not when is the safest time to wait?

Yes even if you are going to sleep, avoid taking like this. It's better to wait for 12 hours atleast. You can safely take Ibuprofen or Aleve in that case for pain. I wish you good luck and that you get well soon.
