Did you know?

That you are only supposed to take one Ibupropen at a time? I always take two, I just read the directions tonight 'cause I gave my twelve year old one, and it says to take one and if that does not work take another. I never knew that did you?

  • LOL your poor livers!

    hahaha. I think I need to go to bed. I kept reading this going "What the heck is a liver?" Thinking it was liver like "alive" you know? I had to actually read it out loud to get you meant the organ. lol.

    Anyways, I always took 2 until I get pregnant. Then I read everything carefully before I took anything.

  • No, and that is kind of crazy because I usually take 3 sometimes 4 at a time.

  • I always thought it was two. But I always take one, I hate taking medicine. My mom is a med junky pretty much. she takes a pill every chance she gets.. I don't want be like that. So I usually just deal with the pain Or find a different method of getting rid of it.

  • nope i dont like to read labels unless its my kids' meds. i always took 3 to a time oops. but funny thing when my 1 yr old have a fever of 103 that wouldnt go down i took her to the ER and they said i was suppose to double the dose on Ibupropen for fevers above 102 on infants and young children. i only gave her one dose and thats why her fever wouldnt go down.
