Section 4.5 new information added -

Experimental data suggest that ibuprofen may inhibit the effect of low dose aspirin on platelets aggregation when they are dosed concomitantly.  However, the limitations of these data and the uncertainties regarding the extrapolation of ex vivo data to the clinical situation imply that no firm conclusions can be made for regular ibuprofen use, and no clinically relevant effect is considered to be likely for occasional use (see section 5.1)

Section 5.1 new information added

Experimental data suggest that ibuprofen may inhibit the effect of low dose aspirin on platelets aggregation when they are dosed concomitantly.  In one study, when a single dose of ibuprofen 400mg was taken within 8 h before or within 30 min after immediate release aspirin (81mg), a decreased effect of ASA on the formation of thromboxane or platelet aggregation occurred. However, the limitations of these data and the uncertainties regarding extrapolation of ex vivo data to the clinical situation imply that no firm conclusions can be made for regular ibuprofen use, and no clinically relevant effect is considered to be likely for occasional ibuprofen use.
