Ibuprofen 600 Mg
Ibuprofen, sold under brand names such as Motrin®, Advil®, Genpril®, and Nuprin®, is designed to treat pain, fever, and inflammation associated with conditions ranging from the common cold to arthritis. It comes in many different forms and products. The exact amount you should take depends on several different factors, including the condition being treated and your age.
For example, the recommended starting dosage for most people with rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis is 1200 mg to 3200 mg daily. This amount is divided into several smaller doses throughout the day. A sample dosing schedule may look something like this:
- Ibuprofen 300 mg four times a day
- Ibuprofen 400 mg three or four times a day
- Ibuprofen 600 mg three or four times a day
- Ibuprofen 800 mg three or four times a day.
It is important to take the lowest effective dose for the least amount of time in order to decrease the chances of serious ibuprofen side effects.
