What is the daily dosage of ibuprofen?

MagazineMay 1995 (Vol. 6 Issue 2)What is the daily dosage of ibuprofen?

In WDDTY Vol 5 no 8, in Drug of the Month, reference is made to the daily dosage of ibuprofen as reaching 3200g

Dear WDDTY:

In WDDTY Vol 5 no 8, in Drug of the Month, reference is made to the daily dosage of ibuprofen as reaching 3200g. Is that a misprint?

Ian H Buist Carmichael, Glasgow........

WDDTY replies: No. According to Upjohn in the Physician's Desk reference, that is the correct upper limit for Motrin, a version of ibuprofen. In fact Upjohn produces single pills with strengths up to 800 mg.
