I have regular 200mg pills at home and I'm wondering if I can just take four of those instead of going out to buy extra strength pills. I believe the difference is that extra strength is a 400mg pill but what I want to know is if the strength of the Ibuprofen is the same.
Dosage - Is taking 800mg of Extra Strength Ibuprofen different than taking 800mg of regular?
Yes, it would be the same. The extra strength only implies to a higher dose per pill.
