    I like this pain medication. With pain - that's what you need. Although there are more effective medications http://wellmed24.com/medicine-products-pain-relie f When I was given injections and my ass hurt - ibuprofen took off the pain. When muscles ached terribly, or joints ached, ibuprofen helped. Begin taking with small doses. Catch and order Ibuprofen http://wellmed24.com/buy-ibuprofen-o ... Show Full Comment

    I used 800 mg for lower back pain resulting from long car trips. I drove straight through 12 hrs the other day without back pain. No side effects. Works great for me, and had it recommended by two others with chronic back pain. I do not take the drug on a regular basis, only for long car trips.

    I use it for tooth pain. Had two teeth pulled and it helps relieve pain. My Mom's Doctor told her not to take ibuprofen since she had a bleeding ulcer and he blamed it on this drug. he suggested Tylenol arthritis strength. I am having side effects right now; dizziness, stomach ache, and hard to focus. I stopped taking it and will call my doctor if the side effects persists.

    My neck is fused (C2-6) and I have degenerative disc disease and arthritis in it. When taking ibuprofen 800 mg I become extremely agitated, suffer sleeplessness, and anxious. Will not use again at any dosage.
