I use this in place of my pain medicine. It helps make my days bearable; cuts down on taking pain medicine.

I take it for degenerative disc disease in my neck and back (I am 72), and "severe" (per MD) arthritis in my knee. With this med, I have NO pain and feel wonderful. I have been given vicodin for severe pain, but don't like the foggy feeling I get. I take the prescribed dose (800mg) of IBUB 2 times daily, but sometimes,I have to have a third, if I am overdoing it.

Comment:
Given Ibuprofen for shingles pain. Helped the pain but now the shingles has gone for the first time in my life have registered high blood pressure so will never take Ibuprofen again. Hoping blood pressure will be lower when I see doctor tomorrow as it is two weeks since I took any. I also found it annoying that I had to eat something when taking it.
