Is ibruprofen bad for stomach?

See below. Ibuprofen itself is not bad. However, too much (1800 mg/day and above) can increase the risk of irritation to the stomach (gastritis) which can lead to stomach pain and bleeding. Use as little and for as brief a period as you can. If you need it chronically, discuss it with your doctor to mitigate the side effects to the stomach and kidneys.
