Not likely


Lack of adequate fluid intake or not enough bulk in food are more likely culprits. If Motrin is being used for pain which has caused immobility, the lack of movement would more likely be the reason for constipation. Increase fluid intake and consider a course of polyethylene glycol (MiriLax and generics.) Take it easy on the amount of Motrin you use, but for other reasons like stomach and kidney.

Not good


Over time, yes. The question is why would you take that amount? Above 800 mg further increases in ibuprofen doses are useless. Talk to your doctor about a different pain Rx if you have that much pain.
