Can Ibuprofen cause liver damage?
After taking ibuprofen for a long period is still effective or helpful for treating pain, and etc...?
Could it be harmful to the liver over a extended period of time?
While be treated at another clinic, a doctor made the statement," I'm surprised after taking ibuprofen for so long, I'm surprised your stomach is not messed up." Can ibuprofen be harmful to your stomach over period of time?
I'm sure my primary care doctor is acting in my best interest and I trust my primary care doctor, but I still have pain (it's not chronic). The total/ complete reason why I was taking off of it was not explained to me.
Basically, my question is can ibuprofen damage your liver, stomach, and lose it's effectiveness over an extended period of time. And since I was taking off of it, I shouldn't purchase over the counter pain relievers?
That was my last question, thanks.
Taking ibuprofen for long term is not recommended.
Thank you for asking HCM
I have gone through your query with diligence. Taking ibuprofen for long term is not recommended. It can damage kidneys and stomach. Do renal function test to rule out any kidney damage.
If you have chronic pain then i would suggest narcotic pain relievers like tramadol. If that is not helping then morphine.
Physiotherapy should be considered before taking narcotic pain relievers.
Avoid over the counter pain relievers also.
Let me know if anything not clear.
I am happy to help you.
Thanks for your response. You didn't comment on if it affects the liver. Can it also affect the liver. I will request the renal function test.
Ibuprofen doesn't gives any liver problems.
Thank you for your follow up query.
Ibuprofen doesn't gives any liver problems. It is even safe in liver disease if there is no coagulation problems. So no need to worry about liver.
