Anybody think they take alot of ibprofen? Im not taking any RA meds because id like to get pregnant soon. I been taking 2 ibprofen 200 before i go to bed & it seems to help the next morning/day.
Once, when I had a stubborn flare that was hanging around for weeks I was put on a "round" of Naproxen (Aleve). I took five a day for five days, then 4 for five days until I got down to none and it worked for the flare. However, I did have to stop all NSAIDS for 5 months once because my liver was not happy. As long as your having your kidneys and liver monitored you should be fine.
Hiya Sal :) i also take ibuprofen but double of what you take.. Im taking 800 when i wake up during the nightbwith pain and i seem to be alot better by mirning. I told my doctor and safe to say i got alot of abuse! I tried reducing the amount but i just cant cope with the pain. I cant say to you what your doing is good ir bad as im worse lol but i guess we just gotta do what we just gotta do. X
I take a lot of ibuprofen to help control the pain and stiffness I have. I have stomach problems too and I know the ibuprofen doesn't help that.. That's why I am going to be going back to a gastro doc soon to see what can be done to help with my tummy trouble.
I think it could be meds. My stomach very sensitive. Now I make sure that eat some fruit in the morning before taking my meds
