Hi, I am at present taking Apixaban and Digoxin for AF. A few weeks ago I damaged the muscles in my shoulder which has been slowly getting worse. I have been taking paracetamol which takes away some of the pain until the effects wear off then the pain is back. A Pharmacist I spoke to about taking Ibuprofen thought it would be ok to take this anti- inflammatory with the medication that I am on. On speaking to my doctor he didn't think it would be wise to take it with the Apixaban. I am inclined to take the doctors advice but what are other peoples thoughts please as just a pain killer isn't curing the problem. David
