• If you're worried, or wondering, what sort of dosages you should be taking it is always best to discuss it with your doctor. The correct amount may differ from person to person depending on factors such as size, weight and height. You should never rely on information found on the internet for medical matters.

• Scientifically, ibuprofen has a half-life of around 2 hours. Half-life is a term used to describe how long it takes for a substance's potency to decrease by 50%. So, after 2 hours your system will only contain half of the original dose. Six hours after you have taken the ibuprofen there will be 1/8th of the original dose remaining, an insufficient amount for most people to feel any medicinal benefits. It will take around one whole day, twelve half-lives, before your system is more or less clear of the drug.

• As I mentioned earlier the recommended dose will depend on body weight and other factors. A daily intake of 1200 milligrams for over-the-counter use is widely regarded as a maximum; however this can rise to anything up to 3200mg if advised by a medical expert.

• Ibuprofen can, though, cause life-threatening heart or circulation problems if used long term. Disorders such as heart attacks or strokes can be triggered by over-use, so if your symptoms persist you should seek medical help. Bleeding or perforation of the stomach and intestines can also be caused by the drug if continually used. These can all be fatal and happen without warning, particularly in older adults.
