" you really must take ibuprofen with food as it is very bad for your stomach taken alone. i take co-codamol 30/500 for pain, i too cannot function properly without it & have been prescribed it for 3 years now. its strong & apparently addictive but my doctor has no qualms about prescribing it for me! take care x "

" Long term ibuprofen use can cause stomach ulcers, mild headaches, insomnia and drowsiness. Also, if you have any cardiovascular issues, it can increase risk of stroke or destruction of heart tissue. Really annoying, I know. "

" I believe it also causes liver damage if taken in large amounts on a regular basis...sad isnt it? yeah, the HS isnt going to kill us but the pain meds we need just might! "
