Ibuprofen your period

Common Questions and Answers about Ibuprofen your period


Avatar f tn Yes no ibuprofen, you should be ok as long as your not taking it anymore. You can only take tylenol.
Avatar m tn You need to go to your doctor immediately. The maximum dose is 3200mg a 24 hr period and you have trippled that. That is a dose that can be very harmful especially when you add alcohol to the mixture. I think you have liver poisoning from the 5600mg that you took along with the alcohol. You need to call your doctor immediately. Here is some stuff for you to consider. I am not a doctor but I can tell you that I am pretty certain that you did some damage to your liver.
Avatar f tn Is 3-6 200mg Ibuprofen a day for a 3-6 days a week bad for you over a long period of time?
1386405 tn?1291591400 ok I just read online that you are not suppose to take ibuprofen while you are pregnant again im 5 weeks i took total of seven not all together of course over say a period of maybe two days due to a severe toothache did i do something stupid is my baby going to be ok.
Avatar f tn Hi I have a massive period ache , therefore I took 1100 mg of ibuprofen . At first I had taken 500 mg tablet but it's been an hour and a half and it did not help , so I took an other tablet of ibuprofen of 600 mg . The pain is gone but I feel very tired , can I be harmed or die out of it ? Should I ask for help ? Or has anybody been familiar with it ? Please help me , I am a hypochondriac person and I also have OCD and use Prozac .
Avatar f tn When I take Ibuprofen for my period (use it for around 3 days), I break out in a red blotchy rash under my breasts and around my navel. I'm not sure if using a heating pad during this time also has something to do with it as I do not get this rash when taking ibuprofen for other ailments such as a one time use for a headache.
Avatar m tn After doing some research, I found many women say their doctor recommended taking doses of ibuprofen to delay and shorten their period. Will this actually put off my period? Did this work for you? Is it safe, if I only do it for a week? What are your recommended doses? Thanks!
689265 tn?1251133687 Not very often and I would think you would have to use a lot of it for a very long period of time to have any bad effects. I prefer Ibuprofen/Motrin to Tylenol. I just think it works much better and for longer periods of time. I was just at the doctor's office today with my 6 year old and was specifically told to use the IB due to her high fevers.
Avatar f tn I am a type 1 diabetic and take 800 mg ibuprofen to get through my horribly painful period and cramps. As long as you do not take over 800mg in a 4-6 hour period, you are fine. Anything you take will affect your body. That's why they are called "drugs.
Avatar f tn 2) Each and EVERY time you take ibuprofen, have at least a glass of milk before you take it, and better yet, something to eat to help with stomach irritation. Not doing this can increase your chance of stomach ulcers as well, as ibuprofen increases your chances of bleeding. In your case with having a D&C, you do not want to take too much as you have had a procedure, and you do not want to increase the bleeding. 3) I suggest if you are having pain, rotate the medications you are taking.
Avatar n tn That is an awful lot of motrin to be giving and a very long period of time for you to be giving it. Has your toddler been to the dentist yet? They may be able to tell you if it is indeed teething pain and offer some other solutions. Some people swear by the herbal teething tablets, but I personally do not like any form of herbal supplements unless they are specifically approved of by our doctor.
Avatar f tn please do not judge - 5 days ago i attempted to kill myself as life just got all too much. i consumed 16,000mg of ibuprofen and 2 packs of hayfever tablets. i was very lucky that my friend got me to the hospital in time but i have no recollection of my treatment and i was released the next morning without any referral, advice or information on my treatment.
Avatar f tn I was told by my doctor that ibuprofen can cause internal bleeding.. I had to ask because ibuprofen is the only medicine that helped my toothaches. You should be fine, just be careful now and don't drink monsters and only take Tylenol..
Avatar n tn org/posts/Rheumatoid-Arthritis/Can-NSAID-like-Ibuprofen-or-Mobic-deplete-Vit-D-over-a-period-of-time/show/1025889 Cannot wait to see what the Dr. there thinks!
1654058 tn?1407162666 I take one ibuprofen every 8hrs and it keeps my fever down.
365850 tn?1207700206 Why thank you, mareke, for your thorough answer to my question... I am only almost 23, and quite healthy since I stopped doing drugs & smoking, & took up jogging - at least I think I am. I am using Motrin for something very specific, and am not sure if it will even do anything. I also find it helps me get a good night's sleep. Anyhow, this is all inconsequent... What other good anti-inflammatory drugs do you know of? I live in Canada, they may be available without prescription...
Avatar n tn Now after biospy and lab work and it is found that a patient has only mild-moderate damage with no cirrhosis, this may be liberalized but this can vary from doc to doc. I would trust your doc until told differently, but if he isnt a specialist, I would get one. And if he is, ask why they think the way they do...
Avatar f tn sometimes the process can take up to two weeks or more so your body can adjust to a normal period.
4722421 tn?1360712171 I wouldnt recomend taking this drug daily for a long period of time and if you want to, I would DEFINITELY talk to your Dr. With that said, Prescription strength ibuprofen is a 800mg pill. The max recommended daily dose is 40 mg/kg (so for you about 1800 mg max a day) Again, I wouldnt take this for extended period of time without your Dr knowing this and being on board. Congrats on the clean time!
Avatar n tn Hi there. No, taking ibuprofen won't affect your period but if you are stressed, changes in routine have occurred, ill . .. all of that might. Any chance you are pregnant? Take a test if so and if it is negative, then it's likely the mouth issues that are causing your late period as they are stressing your system.
Avatar f tn Hi and thanks for using the forum. Congratulations on getting your period! Often, ibuprofen (advil, motrin, etc.) is very effective in easing menstrual cramps. It is unusual to get your period again after only 9 days, but since you just started getting it, it may be that your body is just adjusting to hormones. I would wait and see how your next period goes ( just know that it can be irregular when you first start).
Avatar f tn Having worse pain then usual with my period this time which was also later then usual and going on for longer,it started as light spotting for a few days but just got heavier today and yesterday, have painful bloating and the need to urinate more often aswell, what could cause this?
Avatar n tn Someways to prevent/reduce dysmenorrhea (painful period): > decrease salt intake a week before your period > do regular exercise, engage yourself in some sport (badminton, dancing, etc..) > when already in pain, place a hot water bag (with hot water) wrapped in a small towel and place it over the painful area.
Avatar n tn According to my Gastro, the problem with Ibuprofen (which I take a couple of days a week), is that if you take it on a very regular basis and at the prescribed three 800mg pills a day over a prolonged period of time, it can damage your kidneys and cause stomach ulcers. There is Tylenol as a substitute, and one Tylenol especially formulated for Arthritis, but again too much of that can cause problems.
Avatar n tn anywho, my back is occasionally / regularly sore, typically i have a good day, do a little too much and pay for it the net day. 800mg ibuprofen or tylenol do almost nothing for me, (im 220 lbs can i take more?) im sore and cant enjoy my day because i dont want to do anything because my back is sore. is there anything more effective than ibu that wont become a problem? advil, aleve etc etc?
Avatar f tn 30 and a few hours ago, around 2pm, i took one 200mg ibuprofen. thing is, at my pre-op meeting with a nurse on this past wednesday who got my history, she gave me a card explaining the day-before-surgery stuff and the NPO after midnight instructions. i have never got from my dr. nor from the pre-op nurse, any list of things to avoid during this week before surgery.
86664 tn?1291561395 A "real live educated doctor" told you the only nsaid you could take was Ibuprofen because the others "eat your liver like pac man?" And they also "kill your heart"? And therefore only opiate laced Tylenol is what's required for long term pain relief associated with IFN/riba side effects?? Tell me sambone, was this doctor from Earth or was he a specialist in Martian physiology? That matters, you know?
Avatar f tn Is it normal to feel bloated and cramping during your period? Also, do any of you experience the same symptoms? Btw, what is a good pill to relief period pains?
