The maximum amount of Motrin( ibuprofen) for adults is 800 milligrams per dose or 3200 mg per day.

If you have taken more than 3200 mg and now develop heart burn,nausea,vomiting,difficulty in breathing,dizziness,confusion,blurred vision then visit ER.

If you don't have any symptoms then maintain a good hydration.

Monitor your blood pressure and pulse.

Take rest and eat small meals.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.
