Motrin: If you mean if you can safely taken a Motrin 600 mg and then within two hours take another Motrin i think its ok if this is very uncommon and your md approves it.

That is alot: The more Ibuprofen you take, the more likely you will end up with an ulcer or GI bleed. Usually i avoid ove 800mg every 8 hours.
