I've seen some posts about parents using ibuprofen for their PANDAS kids so I am wondering ....what does it help with? My DS 8 was dx'd with PANDAS not quite a year ago and went they IVIG. Now 10 months later he is very defiant on almost every issue. His OCD is manageable as he is on anti Rx every day. Does ibuprofen help the brain inflammation that could be causing this behavior?

Any thoughts out there?

Yes - as peglem said - the motrin is to reduce the brain inflammation. Others also supplement with other natural anti-inflammatories as well. We use an Omega 3 supplment (watch out that it doesn't have Omega 6, Dr. M told us that my cause inflammation in some kids), and also try to feed them lots of anti inlammatory foods - like blueberries.
