I took 800mg motrin availible in Rx. for severe backpain associated with shingle symptoms. It works like a charm, but once it begins to wear off the pain returns instantly.

I take two 800 mg Motrin in the a.m. for muscle pain in the buttock. It eases the pain for the day. I can work outside but by nightfall the pain is back. I take one 800mg at bedtime; then repeat the same thing the next morning.

I take Motrin to combat the "flu like" symptoms associated with taking Betaseron injections. Motrin works will to keep the aches and pains away.

I'm currently taking Motrin 600mg for my back pain. It was prescribed by the ER doctor when I pulled a muscle in my back. It's okay but without the muscle relaxer it's not as effective.

I would never use this drug. I would do 2 hours exercise. Then pop a 600mg. I could go another 2 hours easy. I would shoot it directly into my calves; I can go another two hours on the treadmill with it. But, It's oral. This med is a joke. I use morphine, and I'm going to start shooting steroids. If I ever find someone using ibuprofen; I'm going to turn them into the police.

Nerve damage to right arm and hand. As nerves heal they create pulses of pain and a pin and needle feeling,as well as a burning feeling.

I have Lupus and Arthritis along with all the stuff that goes along with Lupus. Lots of pain and inflammation. I have been using 800mg Ibuprofen for over 3 years. It help tremendously but after the dose starts to wear off the pain is back slamming full strength. No easing into it. I have had EDG and Colonoscopy with no GI side effects from taking this medication. I do always eat when taking it.

Long term pain control.for total hip replacement.

Comment from: Migraine Lady, 35-44 on Treatment for 1-2 years (Patient) Published: March 23

I have been using Motrin ever since I had my 2nd child a year ago. I am nursing still and unable to take my migraine medication. It works most of the time. I usually will try Tylenol with a cup of coffee and after several hours if that hasn't helped, I then proceed to use the Motrin 800mg. The side effects that I am starting to have after taking it is: shortness of breath, difficulty taking deep breathes and sometimes my chest feels heavy after like someone is sitting on it. After talking to my mom who has been taking this for almost 2 yrs, was having the same side affects. so I am really cautious and only take it when it is absolutely needed.
