Can you take gabapentin and ibuprofen at the same time?

You should not take antacids at the same time as a dose of gabapentin, or in the two hours before or after a dose. It's fine to take non-prescription painkillers like paracetamol, ibuprofen and aspirin with gabapentin, assuming these are appropriate for you.

Can you take Tylenol and mucinex at the same time?

It's OK to mix ibuprofen, acetaminophen and guaifenesin (Mucinex) because they are in different drug classes. You are wise to ask this question because you should never take products that cause you to "double up" on medications like acetaminophen and ibuprofen. Too much ibuprofen can cause internal bleeding.
