Topical anti-inflammatory not working for wrenched shoulder

Customer Question

Topical anti-inflammatory not working for wrenched shoulder and want to take ibuprofen, I have had a stomach ulcer and have gastric reflux problems but take pantoprazole 10mg daily. Would it be OK to take ibuprofen for a couple of days?

Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. You should always check with your personal dr. But yes ibuprofen for a few days should not cause symptoms and should be safe for you.
