I've had more sharp pain lately so I've taken much more ibuprofen. About 8 200mg doses/day. I think it may be making my pain worse once it wears off! It takes the edge off for a while but in about 6 hours I feel like I'm in worse pain than I was before! Does anyone feel this?
Sometimes. I try hard not to take my Rx 800mg ibuprofen more than 2-3 times a day but usually just once if at all because I also take 90mg of Cymbalta daily and 300mg Neurontin x2-3 times daily. Sometimes my pain depends on inactivity/activity or even temperature changes. I believe the best way ibuprofen is supposed to help is when taken on a consistent basis to alleviate inflammation but I am concerned about the build up in my liver since my sister died of liver/pancreas cancer. It seems to help if I change it up now and then with ibuprofen gelcaps. They seem to dissipate into my system faster than the solid 800mg tablet & thus works faster. I hope some of this can help! I'm always near if you need to 'talk'. 😊
I have almost stopped taking Iboprofen. The more I've read on what the drug does to your stomach and bowels has really turned me off it.
