Ibuprofen dosage -- Please read


Recommended Posts

Hi all.

 

We are on vacation and DS12 is having fun but also a LOT of tics and/or OCD.

 

I've never tried the ibuprofen route before. Can someone give me recommended dosages and timing for 105 pound kid? Internet access is spotty right now. I'd love any comments.

 

Thanks!

Normal adult dosing- normally two tablets, 3x per day. The effect is cumulative, so don't miss a dose. Wean off after 5 - 7 days.

 

When PANDAS is just starting to flare, we have seen this be very helpful- when already in midst of a flare not so much.

 

Give it a try, it may at least take the edge off...

My DS13 is 6'2" 150, he gets 600mg 3x day (every 6 hours), now for 6 months. I hate it but its the only thing I've found that helps, even though its only a 'tiny' help...(Dr.T suggested the dose).

Hope it helps your DS.
