Can I take aspirin for my heart combined with ibuprofin for pain?

Senior health and dealing with pain

If we are taking aspirin (or coated aspirin: Ecotrin) for our heart problems, DO NOT take ibuprofin as a pain medication for arthritis. Studies show that ibuprofin counteracts the effect of aspirin for blood-thinning therapy of heart patients. Always check with your senior health care physician.
