Depends whether your on any other medication. 400mg three times a day along with two 500mg Paracetamol four times aday is a safe amount normally. these are maximum doses in 24 hours

I took this for ear infection on GPs advice

The box has indications as to mow much you must take. This should consider your body weight or something.

I think you need a good stiff drink every night, thats better then any pill!


traveller
read the instructions on the box

I would take 600 mg of Ibuprofen, which is usually 3 Motrin pills - but you should always check the label!


justmmez
Take 400 to 500mg per every 4hrs for pain. Try another dentist on emergency basis.

Over the counter Ibuprofen comes as 200 mg. I would recommend taking 200-400mg every 4-6 hours, if it does not get better, you can up the dose to 3 tablets each time. Ibuprofen is an anti-inflammatory, it will help ease the pain. Honestly, I am a pharmacist, I would recommend that you take Tylenol as well. 250-500 mg every 4-6 hours, not at the same time as the Ibuprofen. Just make sure that you do not take TOO much Tylenol- it can cause toxicity if overdosed.


oranjtulip
800mg is prescription strength. That would be 4 Advil or Motrin. And don't take it any more than once every 6-8 hours. And DO NOT TAKE ON AN EMPTY STOMACH! EAT WITH FOOD! Taking the high dose without food can be very damaging to your stomach.


jax
read the packet for instructions or ask at the chemist


jamie_0778
i wouldn't take more than 800mg at a time. you could go to your dr. and ask for a prescription pain med. there are some that he can prescribe that will numb the nerves. ibuprophen might not work as well.

600 mg , but check the label. Do not take Tylenol, if do very closely monitor the dose. to much Tylenol can kill the liver.....

first of all how old are you and how much do you weigh?
most normal adults can handle 800 milligrams every 8 hours
second of all if the toothache is caused by infection then you will need an antibiotic or Ibuprofen will only take the edge of and it will keep on. see if your dentist would be willing to call you in a prescrition for an antibiotic until your appt. most should be more than willing to do so. if he won't your primary care physician may do it if you call and explain the situation.
