One one pill a day? I would think that that dose is too low for that.

My niece (all of 16) developed an ulcer from this. She's a swimmer and national champion lifeguard competition athlete, so works out hard. She was taking anti-inflammatories because of this and, yup, developed an ulcer that now has dietary restrictions. Took more than a year to root cause. Now she's on the mend and will be able to chocolate and steak again soon

Cheers.

Not much chocolate and steak again, if she is still an athlete, though.

No problem with steak. And chocolate in moderation. She's still young enough to have a very fast metabolism. Wait until she hits 30

Cheers.

I don't remember the exact dosage. Now all he can take daily is the coated baby aspirin as recommended by doctor. He used to take the additional anti-inflammatory like you mentioned, which is why I said something. He is fine now though, but just has to be careful with the anti-inflammatories. Gave us all a pretty big scare though when he needed to rush to the ER (and 2-3 days hospital stay) due to low blood pressure and severe pain.

Everyone is different and all that, but felt I should at least say something.

Thanks. I will definitely keep an eye on this going forward, especially now that I'm aware from direct experience with my niece, and your comments.

Cheers.

I don't take ibuprofen regularly but it's what I take when my back hurts a lot and standing around on concrete aggravates it at Disney. I usually pack a few doses a day for our trips. I know it doesn't seem to mess with my normal body temp when I take it (still in the 97s almost always and at most low 98) and with a lower than average body temp 100 is a high fever for me. I find temp checks stupid honestly. My aunt's care facility did them and it still went through. The temp didn't appear for the worker until part way through the shift. Too late then anyway. I don't fight it, but I don't feel it necessary. Glad our school doesn't require it.

Talk to your doctor about this. Both ibuprofen and aspirin reduce the clotting action of blood platelets. Using both could lead to bleeding problems.

Also, the latest recommendation is to take daily aspirin only if you have had a heart attack, have had a stroke or are at high risk for a heart attack.

Cool. Thanks for the info. I hadn't looked at the info in a while and, of course, this stuff changes. No coronary risk, so I may be able to remove that.

The Mayo Clinic mimics what you said. Now what do I do with a lifetime supply of 81 mg aspirin?

As for the ibuprofen, I've been doing so many house projects that involve contortions, heaving lifting and extended work that I may just want the anti-inflammatory for now

Cheers.
