Ibeprofun and stomach help
Old 05-04-2014, 07:08 AM

I had a crown replaced about three weeks#ago. My bite hasn't been right since and eating causes pretty bad mouth and jaw pain. I've been taking Ibeprofun twice a day to deal until I could get back in to the dentist (tomorrow). Now my stomach is constantly upset. I can't even sleep at night because it's either my stomach or my teeth, or both. I've stopped taking the Ibeprofun. How long until my stomach heals itself? Anybody else ever had this happen?

Don't take ibuprofen without eating food first! Ibuprofen is an NSAID, and NSAIDs are infamous for boring a hole in your stomach. Tell your dentist; he may want you to see the doctor.

If you take ibuprofen, make sure you take it with food or even milk. You could start taking Zantac or other heartburn medications to reduce the acid and help your stomach heal. I would definitely talk to your dr though.

Taking it for years. I stopped drinking pop and couldnt eat red sauce either bc of the ibuprofen. Now I never take it unless I eat first.

Does Tylenol help with the mouth pain? Try that as it won't upset your stomach.
