Can ibuprofen cause bruising? I switched anti inflammatory pills from refalen to naproxen. And noticed all the bruising suddenly. Why?

NSAID bruising: Almost all nsaids affect platelet aggregation to some degree like aspirin; the cox-2 inhibitor NSAID Celebrex (celecoxib) has the least effect on platelets. Eating foods rich in vitamin k may help prevent the bruising you're experiencing.

Largest dose of ibuprofen one can take for severe swelling on elbow from a bad fall with large angry spreading bruise? 600 or 800mg?

Ibuprofen: Generally speaking 800mg of ibuprofen is a maximal single dose which can be taken up to three times in a day. However use caution given the spreading bruise which suggests bleeding, as ibuprofen and other NSAIDS can lead to easy bleeding and perhaps worsen the situation. Tylenol (acetaminophen) may be a safer alternative for pain relief. Concern for fracture or more serious injury may warrant an x-ray. ...Read more

Some: Some bruise take longer to resolve than others, particularly if they are located on extremities. From your description it appears that you may have broken some blood vessels. This would also slow down resolution of the bruise. Finally, Ibuprofen will prolong bleeding times. If you do not see continuing progress in resolution over the next week contact your physician for an evaluation. It is normal for the area to begin changing colors as the blood is broken down and parts resorbed into the body. ...Read more

Does taking prozac, (fluoxetine) lamictal, or ibuprofen increase chances of bruising? My friend is getting a lot more bruises on her legs than ever before.

Does taking prozac, (fluoxetine) lamictal, or ibuprofen increase chances of bruising? My friend is getting a lot more bruises on her legs than ever before.

Meds n bruising: Of those 3, lam octal and Ibuprofen can. If I had to pick one, it would be ibuprofen. Depending on dose and how long you've been on lamictal, I would definitely discuss it with your doctor. Simple labs can tell if Lamictal is affecting your blood counts and increasing your risk for bruising and or potentially bleeding. ...Read more

I heard ibuprofen is safe. I'm 19 weeks could it cause me to misscarry? I

Controversial: The use of ibuprofen in pregnancy is somewhat controversial. It probably won't cause a miscarriage at 19 weeks but there is some concern that it could cause problems. For example, it may cause part of the fetal circulation, the ductus arteriosus, to close prematurely if ibuprofen is used after 30 weeks. I wouldn't use it unless your Ob recommends it. Best Wishes! ...Read more

Call your surgeon: The pain medication prescribed after "wisdom teeth" removal depends in the difficulty of the removal. For straightforward extraction advil and tylenol (acetaminophen) can work fine but for more difficult extractions vicodin or Percocet works well. Your surgeon can call in a prescription for vicodin for pain and an anti-emetic like Phenergan for nausea to a pharmacy near you. If you smoke, now us a good to quit. ...Read more
