How much ibuprofen is too much.
Im 3 weeks post op, I am wondering how much ibuprofen is too much. I have 800s and the bottle/instructions say take as needed up to ever 4 hours. Additionally, i have oxycodone which also has 500mg of ibuprofen in it as well.
I am 220 lbs, good health otherwise.
On a few bad days i probably totalled up to 4000mg. I have cut down and end up with probably 3200 or less on average.
Anyone have any input. Im going to see my doctor and will ask about it.
I had a pain doc a while ago and i overheard him talking on the phone to another patient saying that this kind of dose is ok for short term, but he'd be really worried if it was longer.
