Ibuprofen: 1000 mgm of ibuprofen/day should not cause you any problems. The upper limit of ibuprofen/day should be no greater than 2000 mgm/day and certainly above 3000mgm/day is a real risk for liver damage. The real question is why are you taking the ibuprofen on a daily basis. That problem may need to be looked into by your physician. If the ibuprofen at 1000mgm/day is causing stomach issues stop it. ...Read more

How long does it take for ibuprofen to leave one's system?

Depends: Clearance of this medication is done by the liver and is dose- and liver function-dependent. Basically, if you took 200mg, it is gone in 2 hrs, 400mg in 4hrs, 600mg in six and so on. You should not take more than 800mg at a time though and those dosage times just tell when it is safe for another dose, complete clearance may take longer. As for surgery, most docs want you off for 2 wks prior. ...Read more
