    I normally advise patients to NOT mix drugs, no matter how harmless it may be... mainly because the drugs interact and affect patients in different ways. Ibuprofen and robitussin (cough suppressant + expectorant) shouldn't have major interactive effects, however, if your symptoms are simply a cough and laryngitis, the robitussin should take care of it.

    If your headache/dizziness returns later on, then feel free to take the ibuprofen 3 - 4 hours after the robitussin to minimize interaction.
