400mg ibuprofen, 12hr xtended release. If max recommended / day =3200mg, is it reasonable to assume I can take 4 at once, 2 times per day?
Intermittently: It is okay to take Nonsteroidal antiinflammatories (NSAIDs) intermittently but take them particularly with food as they can cause GI/ stomach upsets taken alone. Additionally, 800mg is the maximum you should take at any one time. NSAIDs overuse can also contribute to rebound headaches if persistently used. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is there really any difference between ibuprofen 200MG, 400MG, 600MG, or 800MG, as far as pain relief?
Why are some doctors saying to avoid ibuprofen or only use at most 400mg once a week? Others seem to prefer in general.
A few reasons:: Ibuprofen (advil, motrin), like other anti-inflammatories, has the potential to cause increased stomach acid and therefore contribute to the risk of ulcers and intestinal bleeding. That's the main reason why everybody is up in arms about motrin. It is excreted through the kidneys, so there may be concerns with kidneys or blood pressure. If you have never had a problem, great. If so, use with care. Read more
I took 400mg of ibuprofen and now im afraid its gonna have a bad interaction with my xarelto what could happen how long does it stay in my system??
The good news is that 400 mg of ibuprofen is a relatively low dose. You should watch for any signs of bleeding or increased bruising. You should opt for tylenol (acetaminophen) if you need pain meds, no more than 4 grams in 24 hours. (2 extra strength every 6 hours).

Few questions:: #1: Allergic to aspirin? Sometimes those folks react poorly to other NSAIDS. #2: How are your kidneys?
