Ibuprofen 800 Mg

Ibuprofen (marketed under brand names such as Motrin®, Advil®, Genpril®, and Nuprin®) is available in a number of forms, including tablets, capsules, caplets, or a liquid.
 
Prescription-strength ibuprofen is available in the following strengths:
 
  • 400 mg
  • 600 mg
  • 800 mg.
     
The recommended starting dosage for most people with rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis is 1200 mg to 3200 mg daily. This is split up into several smaller doses throughout the day. For example, your dosing schedule may be one of the following:
 
  • 300 mg of ibuprofen four times a day
  • 400 mg of ibuprofen three or four times a day
  • 600 mg of ibuprofen three or four times a day
  • 800 mg of ibuprofen three or four times a day.
     
Regardless of how much you take, it's wise to take each dosage with food or milk. This will help avoid an upset stomach. To reduce your risk of side effects, be sure to take the lowest effective dose for the least amount of time in order to treat your condition.
