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 with gabapentin and baclofen
1 Reply RSS
Is it safe to take 20mg baclofen, 800mg ibuprofen and 200mg gabapentin at the same time? I've been taking it for muscle spasms and sciatica. ## According to the University of Maryland Medical Center (umm.edu / drug interaction tool), there are no drug interactions listed between Ibuprofen, Gabapentin and Baclofen. This doesn't necessarily mean that no interactions exist, so I would still encourage you to discuss this with your doctor first. However, I don't see any reason why you wouldn't be able to take them together based upon my own investigation - Especially if these are all prescribed to you. I hope this helps!

Gen Payne
6 Replies RSS
What are the age requirements for this medication? ## Gen Payne contains the active ingredients Ibuprofen, Paracetamol and Codeine, which is a narcotic pain reliever. Since it does contain a narcotic, it would be advisable not to give it to children, unless a doctor has specifically instructed you to do so. And, in the case of elderly people, their body may metabolize the medication differently, so they may require a lower dosage. Side effects may include: nausea, stomach irritation, constipation and dry mouth. Learn more: Has your doctor advised you to take this? ## hey i took 2 gen pyne for period cramps.. it really worked..am not having any pains now ## I'm on day 3 of using Gen Payne for inflamation of my skin. Terrible side effects though, eg. disorientation, nausea, dry mouth,...

Big Pharma's Lockdown On Legitimate Chronic Pain Patients
113 Replies RSS
Is narcotic pain medicine becoming a thing of the past? Why are doctors across America phasing out the practice of prescribing effective pain medication? Will big pharmaceutical companies ever truly understand what it's like to face the other side of the coin? Lately there's been a musty scent in the air surrounding the use of prescribed narcotic pain medication. Many doctors appear to be running scared as the DEA scours through fields of medical records, inspecting prescribing pads like a mouse scavenges for food in a dimly lit cellar. Should the day come when doctors recommend Ibuprofen to a feeble man who's been involved in a terrible car accident (breaking several bones / requiring extensive surgery), is this doctor at risk of malpractice when there are more effective op...

can u take ibuprofen and hydrocodone
3 Replies RSS
I want to know if I can take Ibuprofen 600 mg, Hydrocodone, Flexeril 10 mg and Baclofen 10 mg tabs together for sciatic nerve pain? ## I really want to know can these pills be taken together? ## Hi Eva, Based on my research, there aren't any problems taking ibuprofen alongside hydrocodone. In fact, they already manufacture a tablet with that combination for pain management purposes. However, using flexeril and baclofen together with each other AND/OR with hydrocodone may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people might also experience various degrees of impaired thinking and judgment as a result of using these medications together. So driving or operating any heavy machinery is generally not recommended either. I hope this info hel...

oblong white pill with i 10 on one side and blank on the other
1 Reply RSS
I have a white oblong pill marked I 10 that could be 800mg ibuprofen. Are there any side effects from taking ibuprofen during pregnancy? ## Yes, this tablet is listed by the manufacturer Granules India as containing 800mgs of Ibuprofen. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach irritation, and increased risk of bleeding. Generally, the bleeding risk is why it is not advised that you take it during pregnancy, unless your doctor instructs otherwise. Congrats on the baby! Is there anything else I can help with?

IP 465 pill differences from OTC ibuprofen
1 Reply RSS
I have had chronic pain throughout my body for years that may or may not be associated with fibromyalgia and/or arthritis. Regular 200mg OCT ibuprofen doesn't work, even when up to 1000mg is taken at once. I quite literally found a small bottle of IP465 ibuprofen, and after researching what the pill was, decided out of sheer desperation to see if it would help. It doesn't make the pain go away, but does help some...oddly enough, more than the OTC ibuprofen....and that doesn't make sense. Why would a 600mg pill work better than 5/200mg pills would? Is the IP465 time released? ## Not, it is also a regular release formulation. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. It just mig...

To give you a bit of a background story: I went to this state dentist and she put something in my tooth to heal it's self I guess, and tooth broke and now I have only a crown just barely sticking out, and recently pain has been increasing and mostly in my upper jaw and me being a curious guy I went in touching trying to see what is causing an issue and I stumbled on this "vein" like thingy that went straight down to the tooth I'm missing and i could actually feel how stiff it was, now my old dentist came back from a vacation and I have to wait for the next 7 days to go to him because he is over booked and to be honest I have a fear from other dentists now after having my tooth break so I only decided to go him because when I was a kid he was fixing my teeth and none of t...

Can You Chew Ibuprofen?
25 Replies RSS
I chewed ibuprofen and it made my mouth burn and now my stomach isnt feeling very good. was it bad for me to chew it instead of swallow it? ## Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and these are well known to cause irritation and/or damage to the delicate lining of the mouth, stomach and esophagus. That's why they are distributed as coated tablets and the instructions usually direct you to swallow them whole and not to crush or chew them. So, yes, it was a bad idea. Even with the coating on them, NSAIDs can cause or irritate conditions, such as heartburn, GERD, ulcers and gastritis. Are there any other questions? ## I chew it and i didn't hurt me, is it different for other people or something? my headaches go away faster... ## i can't swallow pills, so, i chewed up a...
