Have degenerative arthritis in back. Will ibuprofen cause gastric problem?
Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Madam, Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX Well looking into your problem it is possible that you might get gastritis again after taking ibuprofen , no way it can be said that you will not get this problem again because you have a tendency for this . You can take some precautions like keeping the food bland rather than spicy , decreasing tea and coffee intake and addition of a proton pump inhibitor like pantaprazole half an hour before breakfast after due consultation with your treating doctor which will solve your problem . Take care. Dr. Shruti
