I just accidentally took 1200 mg of ibuprofen instead of 600. I took two of them because I thought it was my gabapentin prescription bottle, and I take two of those and they are white just like the 600 ibuprofen pills are.Will I be ok?

I’m 29 and have no nausea or heartburn so far, but it’s only been about 20 minutes since I took them..

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, the recommended maximum dose of Ibuprofen is 3200mg/ day.

So, as you have taken 1200 mg so it wouldn't harm you.

You are 100 % OK and fine.

No need to worry.

If you feel any nausea then take OTC Zantac.

Hydrate yourself with plenty of fluids.

Eat small meals also.

You can take Gabapentin after 2 hours also.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

Thank you for your reply. I have one more question. I already took the gabapentin because it’s nighttime and it helps me sleep. Is that going to be a problem?

Thanks for the follow-up.

No, it wouldn't cause any problem.

It's safe to use with plain Ibuprofen.

You will be fine.

I wish for your good health.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
