Thanks for the question and coming here. I would like to say that please be mindful and next time never take more then 800mg at one time for pain. Try to make a chart or sheet on which you can tick the box when you take Ibruprofen this will help you to avoid taking more then the required dose. I will suggest you to keep a close eye of symptoms such as stomach pain or vomiting or black tarry stools If you noticed anything like that visit emergency. I hope you should be fine for now and don't take Ibuprofen in the next 24 hours. Take milk and drink plenty of water.

Let me know If you need any more information. Please click on the 5 star excellent rating icon so I can get credit for my time with you.

Kind regards

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
