Medrol Mixed With Ibuprofin

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if it's OK to mix ibuprofin with Medrol?

I have the six pack Medrol for my facial swelling but although it has gone down a lot on day four, it is still really noticable.

Kind of think the dentist hit a nerve because one side of my face is

slightly palsy like. One of the shots caused me to go high in my chair,

so I am wondering if that was "the" shot that caused this swelling.

Hi, Jen. I read through a couple of articles and include the link from Medline Plus on Medrol oral.


While it doesn't specifically mention ibuprofen, it does mention several other things such as warfarin and aspirin that shouldn't be mixed. It says if you are taking regular arthritis medicine (ibuprofen could be included there) that the addition of medrol may cause stomach irritation, especially if alcohol is involved. If it were me, I would wait out the other two days, if you were only taking the ibuprofen for the swelling, but always, ask your doctor.

Warm wishes,
