Reviews for Ibuprofen to treat Sciatica
Review by Anonymous:
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.

Review by Davee3:
Advil (ibuprofen): Taking up to 800mg Ibuprofen for persistent sciatica. It is more effective than Tylenol with codeine which didn't help - relief lasting about 1 hour.

Review by Mark P M:
I am 35 year old male with moderate to severe sciatica (pain from buttock to ankle) due to bulging disc L5 - S1. I found taking a 400mg dose gave significant but not total relief for about 2 to 3 hours. The effect was greater if the pain was not too severe, the best results came from taking ibuprofen before the pain got severe. I also found that taking Ibuprofen without food made it work faster but I suffered moderate diarrhea as a consequence.
