In brief: No Motrin 4 GI pain

Pain upper right abdomen with meals can also be (mainly) stomach ulcer or gastritis and can be aggravated by ibuprophen-motrin.
Until diagnostic proven to be not from the stomach, then motrn can be used. Any pain from upper abdomen with meals, rule out stomach origin first as it is much more frequent than liver-gallstone problems and wrong med (motrin) can aggravate stomach ulcer and can even kill.
