I took ibuprofen for two days and advil pm earlier. I've been on prosac 20mg for about 2 months. I'm pretty scared right now because I remember reading Ithat could cause stomach bleeding. I hope it that I ate something bad or needed to use the bathroom or if it's anxeity messing with me.

    I have been on Prozac for several years. I have taken brufen on occasion within the stated guidelines for doseage and have been fine. If you are really worried ask your g.p. I know exactly how you feel about the anxiety but it will get better it took a while for me but it was worth it

    Kind Regards

    Don't worry, iveI've taken it with ibuprofen before and i have gerd, for which I take ranitadine. I've also got to have an op that will mean me taking a really high dose for a week and they are not worried about that. I think if you were taking it long term they would give you somehing to protect your stomach.
