Yes, but: The more ibuprofen the more risk of side effects. Those side effects are dose-related, meaning the higher the dose, the more times per day and the more days you take it, the more problems you can get into- gastrointestinal, and kidney, especially. Then again it depends what health issues you have to start with. I usually recommend a high dose for about a week. Then you should see a ...Read more

Consult with your prescriber. ...Read more
