No ibuprofen: Could be indigestion caused by increased acid in your digestive tract. Ibruprofen, naprosyn, (naproxen) advil- all of the class of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents, would be the wrong choice for medication. Try alka selzer, baking soda or water or peptobismal. If persists, ER visit might be indicated as there might be something going on such as appendicitis or an acute problem in your abdomen.

It's best to discuss all your meds and supplements with your Psychiatrist who is prescribing your drugs. If you are not confident in your Doctor please see another for a second opinion.
