Is this too much Ibprofen?

I am to take 800 Mg(4 tablets) of Ibprofen tomorrow for my appointment to have abnormal cells in my cervix lazored off. Have any of you ever taken this much? Has it affected you? I've never taken this much and it seems like a lot.

  • I did after I got my wisdom teeth pulled. It didn't seem to help much but I have a high tolerance to pain meds.

  • The most I can take is 600mg at a time. (Don't take it on an empty stomach though)

  • If the doctor prescribed it there shouldn't be a problem. I take that much when I have muscle aches (sometimes up to 1,000 mg). You should be fine.

  • It is really not that much, but I am suprised they want you to take it. It thins the blood. I'm sorry that you have to have that done. Good luck.

  • I take that much every time. It's fine, unless you have kidney problems. I'm guessing your doctor told you to. Do you not trust your doc?

  • I take 4 at a time when I get really bad headaches. It's not going to hurt you.

  • I also was prescribed 800 mg tabs for dental work. It took the edge of the pain and I haven't had any noticable side effects.

  • That's what I took after I had my baby to deal with the painful aftermath. Just make sure that you take it with food. I took this much for weeks (it was a very painful aftermath!). That's just the prescription dose.

  • The only effect it will have is likely to be the lessening of pain and swelling, though you might get a bit of stomach upset, as some people do...but nothing to worry about at all.
