After taking it I had blood in my urine. After urinating twice it went away. I tried it again three weeks later it did it again . I've normal colored urine since then. I went back to my doctor three weeks later for physical and they say detected blood cells in my urine. Can in still show this after three weeks, should I be worried ? It is driving me crazy . I'm getting ultrasound done next week.
Yes, ibuprofen can cause hematuria (blood in the urine). Due to you having blood in your urine it would most likely be recommended that you do not take ibuprofen or other NSAID in the future, unless you have been prescribed them. Other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs may cause the same side effect.
It is also important for your Doctor to rule out any other causes of the blood in your urine, so please follow the advice of your Doctor by completing your ultrasound or any other tests that are required.
