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.”
Advil (ibuprofen): “I had a bad flare up with my gout. I tried colcrys and indomethicin. I still had severe pain. Then I purchased Advil 200 mg ×4. That was the key in addition to the colcrys within a day my swelling went down and by the next day I was walking without pain.”
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.”
“Ibuprofen has been my first line of treatment for gout attacks for 30 years and always works quick and fast. If I take Ibuprofen during the week for normal aches and pains it also seems to prevents attacks. Every time a doctor has instructed to me stop taking ibuprofen before or after a procedure I wind up having a gout attack. If I can't take the ibuprofen or any other NSAID then I have used Colchicine, it works but I get serious nausea and diarrhea after one day. I get quick and complete relief from methylprednisolone steroid pack.”
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.”
Motrin (ibuprofen): “Short lived relief with stomach problems if taken long term”
“Ibuprofen is not effective against my gout pain at all. Indomethacin, colchicine, and diclofenac have all been effective, although diclofenac does not eliminate the pain.”
