In brief: Advil (ibuprofen)

Max dose of Ibuprofen is 800mg three times a day.
That means conceivably ( no contraindications ) u could take 4 advil tablets three times a day! better choice would be to see your ors for re-evaluation and treatment options( nsaids , prp or steroid injections, rest / ice Medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pack, open vs . Arthroscopic tennis elbow release). Good luck!
