It is not safe to take 1600mg at once, what you can do is repeat after 4 to 6 hours or take one ibuprofen and one tylenol to augment.

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.

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.
