Ibuprofen Overview

Ibuprofen is a medication in the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) class that is used for treating pain, fever, and inflammation.[4] This includes painful menstrual periods, migraines, and rheumatoid arthritis.[4] About 60% of people improve with any given NSAID, and it is recommended that if one does not work then another should be tried.[5] It may also be used to close a patent ductus arteriosus in a premature baby. It can be used by mouth or intravenously. It typically begins wor...

Ibuprofen 800 mg caused leg pain
1 Reply RSS
After I started taking this pill my left leg started having massive sharp pains and it got worse every day. I was in so much pain, I was in bed all day and night for a week and a half till I stopped taking them. Four days after taking I stopped it's slowly going away. Why is this happening and how do I get my leg back to normal? ## This medication is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and the FDA does warn that it can increase the risk of bleeding, which means there is a risk you've experienced a blood clot. If that is the case, your life could be in danger and you need to consult a doctor immediately. How are you doing, now? Has there been any change? Are you on any other medications?

im Allergic to all Tynenol, Asprin, n ibuprofen. is it safe to take OxyCODONE 5MG, TAB KVK

i went to the er cause i was have severe pounding pressure on the back of my head, well they gave me iv meds and sent me home with this OxyCODONE script. I'm highly allergic to all and related Tylenol, Aspirin, and ibuprofen meds .. and I need to know if the script I have is safe for me ..... ## Hello, Jess! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you had. Oxycodone is a narcotic analgesic, so it is not related to Tylenol or any NSAID. The FDA lists this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## Im allergic to ibuprophin and adpirin and codeine. The dr wants to give me leep surgery and he said i w...

red and white capsule- L imprint on top half/B on bottom
1 Reply RSS
I found a red and white capsule lying on my carpet. The white half has an L imprinted. The red half has a B. It's not ibuprofen, tylenol or benedryl, the only drugs we have in the house. One of our guests must have dropped it, and as they are all teens and preteens, just want to make sure no one is using something they shouldn't be. ## What did you find out about this pill. I just found it in my house. My daughter brought it from my ex's house

White round pill, top half says I, bottom says 135..... The back is blank. What is it? ## Hello, Chase! How are you? I'm sorry, but I don't see a listing in the NIH databases for a round tablet with this marking. Could you please double check and post back? I do see one for a tablet with a marking of IP 135 that is round, and white, which is manufactured by Amneal Pharmaceuticals, they list it as containing 200mgs of Ibuprofen, which is used to treat pain, fever, and headache. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. ## Allopurinol. Hopefully, because it was just given to my daughter by Walgreens, however, the pill she got from CVS last month looked larger. We've been looking...

Ibuprofen tablet to stop period bleeding
9 Replies RSS
Hi. I'm 19 yrs old and just started my period today. I heard that taking 800mg of ibuprofen every 6 hours can temporarily stop the bleeding. My question is, does it work for any kind of ibuprofen or just the red ones? I have white 600mg tablets. Can I use those and they will work just as effectively? ## Hi Lydia, Based on my research, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (such as Ibuprofen or naproxen) may help reduce menstrual bleeding by decreasing the production of substances called prostaglandins. I haven't read anything about certain colored tablets having a greater effect than others in this regard, so I'm thinking that is just something which can only be determined through trial and error. Cramp bark is also a natural alternative touted for it's use in alleviatin...

ibuprofen and hydrocodone acetaminophen
2 Replies RSS
Hi, I got 10 teeth extracted yesterday morning. For pain I was taking hydrocodone, and it makes me so sick with an awful lot of nausea and throw up. I don't wanna take this medicine... still got pain... Can I take ibuprofen instead? Thanks. ## Hello, Mary! How are you? It will not likely provide as much pain relief, and due to the risk of bleeding it can create, you should double check with your dentist to be sure it is safe for you. The FDA lists its other side effects as possibly including headache, dizziness, and stomach irritation. Are you on any other medications? Will you be getting a partial soon? ## Just got my gallbladder out and it seems the norco 5-325 only helps for a short time; so I was wondering if I could mix ibuprofen with norco?

red pill 57 what is this pill!
2 Replies RSS
What would this pill be, it's round and reddish in color with the number 57 on one side ## I found the same pill. Indiana? Red / maroon 57 on one side and blank on the other side. White underneath the red. What is it anyone? ## Based on the appearance and imprint, this is reportedly a 200mg Ibuprofen tablet used for mild to moderate pain relief. For verification, the manufacturer is listed as Avema Pharma Solutions. Ibuprofen pills are generally depicted as being brown, but whenever I see one in person it's obvious to me that the pill looks reddish or maroon in color; would you guys agree? I hope this info helps!
