Good Value... Remember don't overdose... 400mg three times a day... And if that doesn't work... There's some cheap paracetamol somewhere on HDUK

Ibuprofen is far far safer than paracetamol, you can check the BNF (it's available online) I think an overdose is 4g of paracetamol, or 32g of ibuprofen... an overdose of paracetamol will more than likely kill you, an overdose of ibuprofen might cause you GI complications

If I was in enough pain to risk overdosing, I know which one I'd choose.

Then again, if you're in enough pain that a reasonable dose isn't even taking the edge off it, then go visit your GP
It's quite safe to take 800mg of profen 4 times a day that was what I was prescribed for toothache. As has been posted it's a reasonably safe drug

So you're talking 8 typical paracetamol tablets at once. Who does that unless they're trying to OD?

If you were in so much pain that you felt the need to take that many you should go to the hospital.

It's rare to accidently OD on paracetamol I'm sure, but it has a reasonably long half life in the body, almost twice that of ibuprofen, meaning that you get a higher accumulation in the blood that you realize... I'm not saying it's likely, I'm just saying when there's a safer option for someone in serious pain, who's popping one or two whenever they notice the pain, why take the risk?
Not too long ago, a report was published highliting the dangers of iobruprofen which I printed off as a reminder. If I was at home, I would give more info.

There are a lot of dangerous side effects of ibuprofen for sure, for starters it'll give you CHD, should never be used by asthmatics, is dangerous in the elderly and people with stomach ulcers, also it doesn't combine well at all with asprin.

I'm not saying that its safe, but I would be interested in reading the leaflet you have if you fancy PMing me a link or scan when you get a chance
life would suck without ibuprofen.. they're my best friend!

Has anyone said that they have a medical condition which they are looking to treat? No, then it's not medical advice, I'm merely talking about the properties of two different compounds... surely no different to debating the qualities of two different foods (I've seen lengthy debates about the best pizza to buy)

Do you really mean please do not have scientific conversation here?

I agree with you, it is best not to discuss the dosage advice as this is given for particular conditions!!!

Hence I said read the leaflet provided in the box and follow the regular guidelines...
I was told not to take ibuprofen after an accident when I broke bones. Ibuprofen slows the bone healing process.
Good price for a tablet, shame it isn't an Android. Cold.

Actually NHS advice is to alernate painkillers

ibuprofen or paracetamol wait two hours take the other one, wait two hours take the thing you took first and repeat as necessary. That's also the advice for parents who have ill children with a fever
