I finally realized I am allergic to Ibuprofen. I didn't put it together for over a year. BUT it makes me sneeze like crazy, itchy eyes, throat, runny nose, and brings on mild asthma. Just want other people to be aware so they are able to recognize this if it happens to them. It is absolutely possible and can become life threatening.

Ibuprofen 800mg given after a root canal. I suffered from swelling in my feet and ankles and edema and also VERY high blood pressure. 36 hours after I stopped taking it these symptoms resolved. This is very alarming because neither the doctor or the pharmacist recognized my symptoms as being caused by the IBUPROFEN .. they both thought it was the antibiotics.

took 800 mgx3 due to fibromyalgia for over two yrs-now I have developed severe hearing loss in one ear--scared to take it anymore but I don't know what I will do for the pain. I hope this is a temporary loss of hearing.

Comment:
Dr. prescribed Ibuprofen 800 to be taken before my endometrial biopsy. I did and then took it again 16 hours later for pain and 1 more time 12 hours after that. I have never had any allergic reaction to regular ibuprofen before but this was causing faintness, nausea, and the absolute worse red rash that has spread across my abdomen, breasts, back, inner thighs and neck. Dr. gave me antihistamines, ... Show Full Comment
