IBUPROFEN: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

Advil (ibuprofen) for Pain: “Tried using Advil pm due to fibromyalgia pain and wasn’t able to sleep. However I probably would have slept better if I didn’t take anything because not only did it not help me sleep it failed to take any of the slightest pain away”

For Muscle Pain: “I gave it 5 stars only because it really did help me with my pain from pleurisy. I take one 800mg tablet every 6 hours when it flares up. But with long term usage (sometimes my flare ups last two weeks) I have noticed that I have felt extreme depression. Almost to the point where I see no reason to continue on. I didn’t realize it was the medicine until someone else shared their story of ibuprofen with me. It had also made them depressed. So I immediately stopped taking it and within a few days was back to my old self. So moral of the story is that if you need to take ibuprofen please make sure you are doing it under a doctors supervision. Depression is not fun especially when you are in pain.”

For Pain: “It is like baby aspirin for extreme pain. It doesn’t touch bursitus or torn muscle. Take about an hour to even feel a little relief.”

For Sciatica: “I have been taking ibuprofen and gabapentin for two months. I have decided to take just ibuprofen because of the side effects of gabapentin, but I am leary of the reports of heart attacks from ibuprofen. Anyone with information on this?”

Motrin IB (ibuprofen) for Period Pain: “Works within half hour but wears off within 4.”

For Headache: “I get varying types of headaches; migraine, stress, tension, sinus. Ibuprofen works most of the time but tends to take a while to work. And if taken on an empty stomach, will make you nauseous. I recommend using the gel-caps, as they seem to be softer on the stomach.”
