Yes, the worst it might do is upset your stomach or make you a little drowsy. Many people have prescriptions for Ibuprofen which range in dosages from 600mgs each tablet and up.

I am currently only 800mgs Prescription Ibu and usually take two tablets at once, so total of 1600mgs.

Betty: Why would you want to do this. First, speak with your health care providers. Then, follow proper dosing directions. Diabetics must be very careful regarding all substance intake due to hiddent sugars, carbs, etc. Remember, tylenol contains acetaminphen which can cause liver damage in excess. The mgs in Tylenol and the mgs of ibuprophen are different!

My mother is 91 and has some dementia. Her doctor has her taking one 650 mg. Arthritis Pain Tylenol every 6 hr. She thinks she can take more and she wants control of all her meds. I don't know how to handle her. Every day is a battle.
