Dose of ibuprofen?: Label directions for OTC ibuprofen say 1 q 4 hours. I often tell patients most people can tolerate Three 200 mg pills 3-4 times a day for 5-7 days. A bigger dose might help, but some people have stomach upset from this dose. If the pain becomes unbearable where you can't function with normal daily activities, this would warrant a trip to urgent care or perhaps an ER. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Fix the Crohn's...: If you have active crohn's disease, your GI tract is already inflammed so eating anything, including the pills prescribed to help you, may give you GI upset until the crohn's flare subsides. Depending upon the treatment course, some drugs can take a very long time (weeks to months) to achieve healing.

Dr prescribed lexotan 3mg for a week for anxiety. When the week is over will i feel better when I stop taking it? Would it fix what it had to ?
Not likely. SSRI's: or any anti-depressant/anti-anxiety meds will mask the symptom or change your nervous system's way of experiencing it, but won't change much else. It will give you more confidence to deal with situations, if the med works, which is what you need to learn to do without the meds, sooner or later. If you have an underlying physical cause, you may need to stay on the meds longer. ...Read more
