Probably: How serious was the "brain injury"? F you were seen by a doctor, that is who you should ask. In general 800 mg of Ibuprofen is a safe, one-time dose if you have no ulcers, and your kidneys are healthy. Take it with food. If any new brain symptoms, follow up with doctor immediately.

No: Headache after trauma should be evaluated immediately. Go to the er if you can't get in touch with your doctor immediately..

No: You should have this evaluated. If there is any amount of bleeding, Aspirin or Ibuprofen should not be used in the short term as these may affect platelet function and increase the bleed.
