Here's a general guideline:

  • Adults and children 12 years and older: The recommended dosage is 400 milligrams (mg) to 600 mg every 4 to 6 hours [1]. The maximum daily dose is 1,200 mg [1]. It's important not to exceed this amount.

Here are some additional safety tips for taking ibuprofen:

  • Read and follow the instructions on the label carefully. Dosing instructions can vary depending on the specific product.
  • Don't take more than the recommended dose or take it more often than recommended.
  • Take ibuprofen with food or milk to reduce stomach upset.
  • Don't take ibuprofen if you are allergic to it or other anti-inflammatory medications (like aspirin or naproxen).
  • Don't take ibuprofen if you have certain medical conditions, such as stomach ulcers, heart disease, or kidney disease.
  • Talk to your doctor before taking ibuprofen if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking other medications.

If you are unsure about the appropriate dosage for your situation, it's always best to consult with a doctor or pharmacist. They can advise you on the safest and most effective way to take ibuprofen based on your individual needs.
