Hello from JustAnswer. This is Dr. Love and I will be glad to assist you today.

Yes, it is fine to take Benadryl if you have already taken the ibuprofen. These two medicines can even be taken at the same time. In fact, there are some over the counter products that combine the ibuprofen and diphenhydramine (the generic name for the Benadryl) in one pill.

If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
