Hi, I am in Spain and have been given Flumil Forte 600mg (acetylcysteine)

Resolved Question:

Hi, I am in Spain and have been given Flumil Forte 600mg (acetylcysteine) to take once a day. I have had some sort of a cold I think but my main symptoms now are blocked ears (not particularly painful) and a very painful throat where it feels like there is something stuck in it (feels like could be mucus but cannot get anything up). It is painful to swallow. Can U take Ibuprofen with the Flumil? Thanks
