: I'm taking Ibuprofen up to 2400mg per day for RA has any one bad experiences with this long term, I,ve been on it for about 10 months what are my chances of escaping stomach problems?? I also take Ranitidine.
: Thanks Paul
Paul, I took ibuprofen for about 2 years (1600mg. daily) and the side effects I noticed were fluid retention and weight gain. I am now on Vioxx but believe I will have to discontinue it too because it's elevating my blood pressure. I'm sure both meds will cause stomach problems, but what can we do for the pain?
