 3  wisdom tooth pain Helped with pain and relax my body overall the first 2 days. Day 3 I started feeling disassociated with my surroundings and developed nausea. That night I experienced vivid dreams that eventually turned into full blown anxiety attacks. I was so scared to sleep I stayed up trembling the entire night until it was time for work the next morning. My tooth pain has returned but I'm too afraid to experience the psychological effects again. I'm shocked because I've taken motrin before and NEVER experienced anything like this before. F 23 3 days
 2  Carpal tunnel Never worked at the non prescription 400mg to help with my carpal tunnel syndrome. So I started taking 800mg and it helped but not very much. After a while of taking it my stomach would get upset and I would get worse acid reflux so I desided that since it barely worked that I would only take it when my wrists hurt too bad to do things like chopping veggies and brushing my teeth.

 4  in pain + needed to sleep The first time I started taking Motrin PM, under my parents consent, I started having really vivid dreams. by the third night of taking it, the dreams turned into nightmares and they were SO VIVID, I woke up with the sweats and crying. I went off of it after about a week, but I decided to take it again, not knowing that the medicine itself caused the dreams, and some say I experienced "inception." And for some reason, the drug also gave me premonitions. These premonitions, I didn't know we're premonitions until the next day. Well in my dream, I was dreaming, and I had a premonition, so I woke up inside my dream, and what I was dreaming about in my dream happened in the dream I woke up to, and that's when I realized I was dreaming, and it became a lucid dream. I probably will take it again, mainly because I like the feeling of being afraid, but if you get really worked up over nightmares, this will let you live your greatest fears, so I do NOT recommend.

 2  joint pain from old sports injury I've taken Motrin in the past and don't remember any problems. But this time around, I had nightmares so vivid that I forced myself awake and had a slight anxiety attack. The worst part is that the pain is now back. I won't be taking this again. F 24 1 days

 5  Pain in back Sleepiness I love Motrin and will take this whenever I have any sort of pain. Why are people rating this so poorly? It works great, no side effects, except for sleepiness because the pain was keeping me awake. I ahev alot of back problems and it helps. F 18 5 days

 3  shoulder pain I could not figure out why I had sudden water weight gain, to a shocking degree. I found this site here where others report the same issue. I will stop motrin today. It helped only slightly with pain management. F 35 3 days
600-800mg 1X D
 1  Torn ligaments,Swollen knees Extreme Fluid Retention, Wheezing, Acid Reflux, Anxiety, Depression, Nightmares and Panic attacks Okay...allegedly this drug is supposed to aleviate pain and reduce inflammation; however, it did none of the above. In fact, I quit taking the motrin 800 and began taking the standard excedrin (I had some pre-recall excedrin left) and it worked wonders. Anywho, since ceasing motrin 800 my body has naturally began relieving itself of access fluid and my ligament pain isn't as agitated anymore since it isn't experiencing pressure from the swelling anymore....well maybe the celery and dip I've been eating has helped aleviate fluid retention since it is a natural diuretic. Best wishes to you all for a speedy recovery. M 32 8 days

 1  headaches I got asma. After I stopped taking motrin it went away. If you are allergic to motrin it can cause asma. F 65
 1  pain after breast augmentation *severe* and painful constipation I never normally have constipation. Once I worked out that the ibuprofen was causing it I immediately stopped taking it; other pain medications work just as well without this side effect. F 36 14 days
200 mg 1X D
 2  Rheumatoid arthritis & Fibromyalgia Water retention in my legs that was so severe that when I elevated them to alleviate the swelling...the water pooled around my heart and landed me in the ER with arrhythmia and sky high BP! This happened to me several times before I realized that the cause of my edema was NOT any of my health conditions but rather was caused by my pain medication. Thankfully I finally made the connection and have had ZERO edema since stopping the motrin. I am currently relying on hot baths, Traumeel and the occasional Tylenol to manage my pain. While this medication is, without a doubt, one of the best I have found for pain it also comes with a large kidney insult as a price tag. I won't ever take it again. F 47 3 years

MOTRIN  (IBUPROFEN):  Ibuprofen is used to relieve pain from various conditions such as headache, dental pain, menstrual cramps, muscle aches, or arthritis. It is also used to reduce fever and to relieve minor aches and pain due to the common cold or flu. Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It works by blocking your body's production of certain natural substances that cause inflammation. This effect helps to decrease swelling, pain, or fever. If you are treating a chronic condition such as arthritis, ask your doctor about non-drug treatments and/or using other medications to treat your pain. See also Warning section. Check the ingredients on the label even if you have used the product before. The manufacturer may have changed the ingredients. Also, products with similar names may contain different ingredients meant for different purposes. Taking the wrong product could harm you.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
