I accidently took ibuprofen 800mg and a Naproxen 250mg

I accidently took ibuprofen...

I accidently took ibuprofen 800mg and a Naproxen 250mg approximately 1hr. apart. I am now going to bed. Should I be concerned or not go to sleep?

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

Why I took the meds?

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Only allergic to betadine and mirphine. I take quite a few meds for diabetes, BP, cholesterol, triglycerides. I took the Ibuprofen for chronic low back pain due to stenosis/arthritis. Took Naprosyn per instructions from urologist as followup to a maintenance bladder instillation for hx bladder cancer.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

On ssri for esophageal/stomach erosions found by endoscopy. Minimal symptoms

Hello and thanks for your question.
It's my first priority to help you.
I'm reviewing your question now & will post back with the reply soon.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

I understand your concern.
As per your description, since they are both non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications so it's not advised to take them at the same time.

You will be just fine. This is not that much if you have taken them once.

You should take Ibuprofen in morning and Naproxen at night.

If you notice any gastric irritation, drink some milk and eat some food. As well, maintain a good hydration.

You should take OTC Nexium.

If you have any black or bloody stool, vomiting, however, you need to go to the ER- but I really don't think that this will happen.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
