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.[4] It can be used by mouth or intravenously.[4] It typically begi...

Big Pharma's Lockdown On Legitimate Chronic Pain Patients
224 Replies RSS Share
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 You Chew Ibuprofen?
26 Replies RSS Share
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...

Ibuprofen And Acetaminophen
2 Replies RSS Share
How many ibuprofen and acetaminophen equal 1 Vicodin ## They are not equivalent. Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and Acetaminophen is an analgesic and antipyretic, however, Vicodin contains the narcotic Hydrocodone with Acetaminophen, so they just aren't comparable. Additionally, both the Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen can be toxic and cause a fatal overdose, if you take too much, so trying to take more and more of them to relieve pain is not advisable. You can learn more Acetaminophen details here and you can learn more Ibuprofen details here and you can learn more Vicodin details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Can someone tell me the difference between Ibuprofen, Acetaminophen, and Tylenol? Besides Gabapentin I am taking Ibuprofen (NSAID) 4 xs (2 x 200...

tribedoce dx inj.
8 Replies RSS Share
How often should I take the inj's.? ## Hi Sidney, When administering anything in this fashion, I think it's probably wise to consult a doctor first just to make sure you're doing everything properly. However, dosing guidelines for the Tribedoce Dx Inj. Solution suggest that patients apply it via deep intramuscular inj. once every 24 hours for up to 5 days. This dosing information is provided by a pharmaceutical company down in Mexico, where the product appears to originate from. But I'm sure there are plenty of doctors here in the US that would be knowledgable about how to get the most out of it, if that's one of your concerns. Hope this helps! ## Where is Tribedoce DX available? It really helps my Mom with her Arthritis and partial hip replacement. ## I tried taking...

ibuprofen and hydrocodone/acetaminophen
5 Replies RSS Share
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? ## Can Norco & Ibuprofen be take...

Reddish oblong pill G 2
1 Reply RSS Share
I need help identifying a pill. It’s oblong with G 2 printed on it and nothing else. It’s a rust color. Sort of reddish brown. The G and 2 appear to have a space in between them. ## Hi Lou, Any chance that this could be Ibuprofen 200mg? There's a round reddish/brown pill with G 2 on it that's Ibuprofen 200mg as well as an oblong reddish/brown pill with I - 2 on it that is the same thing. The manufacturer of the round pill is Rugby Laboratories and the manufacturer of the oblong pill is Major Pharmaceuticals. So far, I've yet to come across anything else that's remotely similar in description, but hopefully this can at least help to narrow down some prospects.

I have a white oblong pill with I8 on it & no score mark on either side. What pill is this? ## white oblong pill with I8 or 8I imprint ## Is it possible that your pill says IB? If so it's 200 mg of Ibuprofen. To learn more click on the link below... Do you have any more questions or information to add? Please post back if you do. ## Crystal is right about it being Ibuprofen, except it's an 800 mg. ## That's it. Rx 800 mg ibuprophen. I found the rx bottle.
