The active ingredient in Motrin pills is ibuprofen, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, or NSAID. It works by inhibiting the production of substances that cause inflammation and pain in the body. Ibuprofen is used to reduce fever and treat pain caused by many conditions such as headache, toothache, backache, minor pain from arthritis, menstrual cramps, or muscle aches.
The maximum amount of ibuprofen for adults is 800 milligrams per dose or 3200 mg per day (4 maximum doses). Use only the smallest amount of ibuprofen needed to get relief from your pain, swelling, or fever.
Take ibuprofen with food or milk to lessen stomach upset.
Use exactly as directed on the label, or as prescribed by your doctor.

Naproxen works by blocking the action of an enzyme in the body called cyclo-oxygenase (COX). COX is involved in making substances in the body known as prostaglandins, in response to injury and in certain diseases and conditions. The prostaglandins cause pain, swelling and inflammation. Naproxen reduces inflammation and pain by reducing the production of these prostaglandins.
I get migraines with aura symptoms and usually have to be hospitalised. I find ibuprofen helps a lot.
Motrin provided quick, effective relief for muscle aches and pains, including pain from pulled muscles. I have found that purchasing the brand name Motrin is a must; generics simply do not have equal effectiveness for my husband and me.
I can take this product knowing that my back will be feeling better within a half hour and without feeling drowsy like some other products do to me... I always trust Motrin for my muscle pain reliever.
First night taking Naproxen 500mg for ankle and back pain. Did work ankle but not the back pain. Also, horrible stomach pain and heart burn. I'm not sure if it's worth taking another dose... Not doing it.
Great generic for Alene. The price is nice and low, and I love the fact that you only have to take two pills every 12 hours. It is great for any sports injury or burn, as well as sinus infections, headaches, and inflammation. Many people think of these analgesics as "treating the symptoms", but in fact many above listed maladies cause serious inflammation. Inflammation can be harmful to your body, and it is what causes the pain from all of the items I put on my list. For instance, if you have a sinus headache, your sinuses are swollen. That swelling and inflammation makes it difficult for your sinuses to drain. Taking Naprosyn helps reduce the inflammation in your sinuses, allowing them to drain so that you can heal naturally.
