Fedup
My daughter has digeorge syndrome she is 12yrs old going through puberty. She recently began having seizures. At first I thought maybe it was caused by the bactrim. But I took her off that. Now I think it might be ibuprofen. I won't give her antiseizure meds until I rule out any other possible causes. She had three in one day (the first time) and now one month later she has had another. The first time I gave her ibuprofen the night before due to headache. Then the next day not realizing she'd had a seizure the night before I gave her more for headache about 8hrs later a seizure. Then last night headache ibuprofen lije clock work 9 hrs later seizure. Could they be connected? Am I wrong for not giving antiseizure meds yet? How do I get stupid ER DR to quit treating me like I'm a peace of $&!* and just listen to my concerns? They wouldn't even do blood work on her and i am just fed up

I just want to know is it safe to be taking the Ibuprofen and Topamax together? I suffer terribly from Migraines. I always have. But here in the past 3 months they have become unbearable so I was prescribed Topamax 50mg 2x a day. The Ibuprofen 800mg was working alone but not anymore. So now I am wondering how long does it take for the Topamax to kick in and can I take the Ibuprofen along with it?

Is it safe for me to take Robaxin (750 mg) and Ibuprofen (800 mg) together.?. I also take Zanax 1mg twice a day and Effexor 350 mg a day..

Cocurcumin for bursitis
I struggled with bursitis in right hip for months. The inflammation went down my right thigh inner and outer, up my right side and ended in a painful knot between my neck and shoulder. Between February and June of 2014 I had 3 cortisone shots and taking 1200 mg of ibuprofen daily. It did nothing. I was constantly using ice packs just to get through my day. I finally went to my chiropractor, who is also a functional medicine doctor. He handed me a jar of powdered Cocucumin with COQ10 to drink as a tea. within two days the pain became manageable. Within a month the ice packs were gone. As the inflammation subsided I noticed a definite weakness in my right leg. It has taken months of exercise to strengthen it again but I have no noticeable pain and and flexibility to my right side is returning. I still use the Cocurcumin daily for my osteoarthritis coupled with Boswelia. What a difference. I had some bad side effects from the cortisone. Eye pressure in both my eyes shot up to dangerous levels. It took some laser surgery, a small hole to let fluid build up out and three different eye drops. All together this episode was a year long affair but it was the Cocurcumin that finally brought the inflammation down.

RA Givens
Rosacea and Ibuprofen
When I have flare ups I have found that the addition of ibuprofen 800mg to my minocycline and clindamycin regimen reduces the inflammation and pain of the lesions. The ibuprofen was prescribed for arthritis pain prn but works wonderfully for the times I have flare ups. As an APRN, I feel comfortable with my knowledge of meds and positive experiences to do this. I need to add that I do not use the minocycline, clindamycin or ibuprofen routinely as they do cause me side effects when taken for extended periods of time.

tingling and numbness in both hands after taking Ibuprofen
I always took Ibuprofen for headache and sometimes for knee pain but I notice that my hands would be numb and tingling ,but I didn't know it was the ibuprofen until a few months after when I stop taking it and notice my hands and numbness would go away after I stopped, I told my Doctor but he said to stop taking it and gave me the meloxicam but it didn't worked for my knee pain only the ibuprofen would worked. I still don't know what is worst ,the numbness or the knee pain, I would like to know why it does that.
