Reviews for Ibuprofen to treat Gout, Acute
Review by Anonymous (taken for 1 to 6 months):
Advil Liqui-Gels (ibuprofen): 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.

Review by psarq:
Advil (ibuprofen): I have used Advil to treat my gout for years. I start off with 3 when there's pain, then 2 every 6 hours throughout the 1st day. Beyond that, I keep it within the recommended dosage of no more than 1200/day and I typically do that much for the first 3-5 days after an attack occurs. I use the rapid release kind or it doesn't work at all.

Review by Lanc the tank:
Advil Liqui-Gels (ibuprofen): I asked my pharmacist what the best over the counter treatment for arthritis swelling was. He recommended the Advil. I took one capsule at noon, it is close to midnight and my swelling has gone down considerably, the pain has as well.
