Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (nsaid). It works by reducing hormones that cause inflammation and pain in the body.

Nurofen and Targin: Nurofen is a non steroidal anti-inflammatory agent to treat pain. Targin is a mild narcotic combination that also treats mild pain through a different mechanism. They are metabolized differently and can be taken at the same time. Be careful with how much of these that you take. Nurofen can cause intestinal bleeding and kidney problems if you take too much and Targin can be habit forming ...Read more
Hi I've got a bad back and have been constantly taking nurofen plus all day.Ive totaled it up and I've taken 6000 mg of ibuprefen. Wat will happen?
Does 3000mg paracetamol and 2 nurofen plus tablets count as an overdoes that would require medical attention?
Overdose: It depends on whate time frame these were taken in. If they were all taken at once with the intent to harm ones self then yes you should seek medical attention. If the paracetamol was taken over 18-24 hours then no. If you are feeling like harming yourself then the amount of medication makes no difference be seen right now at the nearest medical facility. ...Read more
NSAID side effects.: Nsaids like Ibuprofen have some unfortunate side effects that make them a poor choice for many people in pain and most people with pain after sports activities. They cause injury to stomach, kidneys, prevent your body from rebuilding cartilage in your joints from every day wear and tear, and stop your body from healing an acute injury like a tendon injury or an ankle sprain. ...Read more
My little boy has watery eyes. He is not sick. He has a slight cold. I'm giving him nurofen for children 6 plus. Is it a cold he has.
Watery eyes: Tear ducts drain into the nose, so when the "lining" of the nose is swollen or congested, the tear ducts can be blocked which would cause an overflow of tears. Sometimes, the eyes themselves are irritated and may have increased inflammation with increased tearing. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Hi, can you take nurofen plus with solpadol? I have fractured my foot and was prescribed difene 50mg capsules, but are making me ill. Can I take nurofen plus 200mg/12.8mg as an anti-inflammatory as well as the solpadol 500mg/30mg I was prescribed
No, you shouldn't: Both Nurofen Plus and Solpadol 500/30 contain codeine and an aspirin-like product, so you would be taking more of both than your doctor recommended. My advice is to stick with just Solpadol 500/30. If that alone doesn't control your pain, please contact your doctor for advice. Besides pain meds, they are other ways to get pain relief from an injury like this. ...Read more
Been taking aprox 5 tabs ibuprofen every 6 hrs all summer. plus tylonal. now very sick. extrememly weak, its like im shutting down. what to do?
Pain: What's going on? We are obviously missing a great deal of information about you since we don't even know your age let alone your medical history and why you are taking ibuprofen so often. Please see a doctor urgently, I mean now. I'm also suspicious of significant mental health pathology in addition to anatomic and physiologic injury that you may have sustained by self medicating. ...Read more

My boyfriend is sick i gave him ibuprofen (600mg) at 2pm and alka-seltzer plus at 6pm is it ok for me to give him 120mg of ibuprofen now at 9:10 pm??
Ibuprofen Use: Well, it depends on which alka-seltzer plus was given. If it was the one with Tylenol, (acetaminophen) then yes he can have another 200mg of ibuprofen at this time. But if it was the one with aspirin, then I would hold off on giving more anti inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen, Advil, aspirin, etc. Generally, he can have up to 800mg of Ibuprofen every 8 hours as needed for pain/inflammation/fever. ...Read more
I bought relora plus for my anxiety and stress from a health store called natures source. Am I able to take an Advil (ibuprofen) while taking these natural pills?
Unknown: there is no good evidence that Relora works for Weight loss or anxiety, despite what is written on the Internet. A good review of the minimal amount of study that has been done is at supplement-geek.com/relora. Because it is not been studied, it is not possible to tell whether there could be an interaction between ibuprofen and the active ingredients in Relora. I would avoid it. Good luck. ...Read more
