Typical prescription strength for ibuprofen is 800 mg every 6 hours so she should be fine. She may notice upset stomach and can take some Pepto Bismol for that. Also be sure she has something to eat and plenty of fluids over the next 24 hours.

Please let me know if you have additional questions about this.

Best regards,
