Does anyone know, after I take ibuprofen I always get hot, it happens everytime I take it?

Drug effect.: All drugs affect people differently. Major side effects are well known. Rarer side effects that may only affect a few people are usually not reported. Clearly, ibuprofen has an unusual effect on you. Don't take it! The problem may also occur if you take naprosyn (naproxen) or aspirin, which are in the same class. But it is just as likely that those will not give you a bit of trouble. Try one of them to see.

Which medication helps best with migraines? Ibufrofen, parecetamol, nurofen or advil (ibuprofen)? I get them all the time!

Which medication helps best with migraines? Ibufrofen, parecetamol, nurofen or advil (ibuprofen)? I get them all the time!

Frequent migraines: People w frequent headaches should be examined by a physician. If known to have migraines, it's worthwhile knowing: Frequent use of migraine meds (eg sumatriptan) or acetaminophen (paracetamol) can cause "medicine overuse headaches." In other words, regular use of the headache med is now actually causing the headache. NSAIDS like naproxen (Aleve) can treat med overuse headache, as well as migraines.
