Advil Liqui-Gels (ibuprofen) for Fever: Gels are better and work faster than the tablet form.

ibuprofen for Osteoarthritis: Been taking ibuprofen 800 3x a day, and always with food. A PA urged me to go off of it last Mon (now Wed) and replace with tramadol; said he didn't know anyone who didn't get stomach ulcers or have kidney problems when on ibuprofen for extended period. Each day pain grew worse until today I could hardly get out of bed as pain was excruciating. Cooked breakfast in a hurry, switched back to ibuprofen and now pain free by noon

ibuprofen for Pain: Been having costochondritis and the pain and swelling were increasing. After taking ibuprofen pain has decreased but noticed that my appetite has drastically changed, I'm craving everything i see and that made me gain weight. Which is weird for me because i have always been fit. Going to start taking ibuprofen right before i go to sleep to see how it works out.

ibuprofen for Fever: My son is sick with Influenza B. Last night his fever skyrocketed above 104, he vomited, wouldn't move, eat, or talk, I was terrified. I called the doctor and he recommended Children's Ibuprofen. Within an hour of taking it he was asleep, I give it every 6 hours and today he is 100 percent better, playing and even eating. I can't believe how well it works!

Advil Migraine (ibuprofen) for Headache: Long term migraine sufferer. First used Axert twice, still had burning, Advil Migraine relieved the burning. Only one day , but seems like it is worth a try.

Children's Motrin (ibuprofen) for Fever: I purchased this medicine for my little girl because it was doctor recommended. It was a need base purchase to reduce her fever and some of the discomfort that she was having. They stated that it would be the best in reducing her fever. I purchased the medicine and shortly after her fever was gone and she was resting. She slept well through the night. Children%u2019s Motrin is a name that I trust. Therefore, I was not hesitant at all when my doctor recommended that I purchase this product. I have also used other fever reducer products for my little one, such as Tylenol and it did not reduce her fever at all, so Motrin was the choice brand. Motrin allowed her to sleep through the night and she did not spike a fever the next day. Motrin did the job.

Motrin (ibuprofen) for Headache: I've been suffering from headaches/migraines due to stress, menstrual cramps and dry sinuses for 5 years now and I have to say Motrin is very amazing with results. I would usually take 2 to 3 pills with food and about an hour or 2 it takes the pain away. No side effects!

Advil (ibuprofen): My tonsils have been hurting very badly the whole day that I felt like crying. 10 minutes after taking Advil, I felt such a relief. More than half of the pain was gone and I was able to take my final exams for school without any pain. Thank you so much Advil!

ibuprofen for Back Pain: Relieves pain faster but not quite like a narcotic...safer! 8.5 to a 9 out of 10 for 800mgs does the job!!

Advil Liqui-Gels (ibuprofen) for Gout, Acute: I have chronic gout problems, been having for 15 years. Advil works good for my back pain and most of the time for joint pain if taken at the first feeling of gout flare. Taking four 200mg caps at a time.

ibuprofen for Sciatica: I would suggest taking Naproxen rather than Ibuprofen for this. 500 mg of Naproxen works. I have tried both and Naproxen is superior. Ibuprofen does nothing for me.

Advil (ibuprofen) for Pain: I've been taking Advil (Ibuprofen) since 1999 for headaches and body pains. I sometimes take this with the prescription medication Maxalt (which treats migraines) I've have REALLY bad headaches and migraines since I was in grade school and took Tylenol until when into my late 20's. I then started taking the regular 2 tablet dose, 400 mg. I HAVE on occasion upped the dosage (not on doctors instruction) to 600mg if the 400mg dosage isn't effective and the pain doesn't not subside within 30-45 minutes.

Advil (ibuprofen) for Rheumatoid Arthritis: I'm starting to have pain in 2 of my fingers on my right hand, and I know that my family history has arthritis, so by taking 800mgs of Advil, it seems to take away the pain. I also found that putting heat on it, helps the pain also.

ibuprofen for Period Pain: Ibuprofen is wonderful for period pain, takes an hour to work and I take 2 x 200mg tablets every 8 hours. Have been taking ibuprofen for a few years now and it's always done the job so far, until this week that is. I was admitted to hospital with an immune system that almost shut down because of a reaction to ibuprofen. I consider myself very lucky that I did a routine blood test and found out this information, was told to stop taking the medicine immediately. Please be careful even if you've taken this medicine on a number of other occasions as I have done.

Advil (ibuprofen) for Muscle Pain: A soon as I took it I started having blurry images, I couldn't breathe and everything turned for the worse. I feel like everything that surrounds me are circling or rolling.

ibuprofen for Pain: Ibuprofen 600/ or 800 is a great pain reliever. Although I've taken many pain medicines over the years, ibuprofen I find to be just as effective as the strong control substances. It's a good anti-inflammatory too. Works great for severe menstrual cramps and tooth pain as well.

ibuprofen for Period Pain: I always take these pills when I have my period, and it usually takes away the pain within an hour or so, but I do not recommend you take ibuprofen without eating first as I have done in the past, not such a good idea.
