Motrin 600 Mg

Some of the factors that affect the dose of Motrin® (ibuprofen) you should take include the condition being treated and other medications you are taking. Motrin comes in prescription and nonprescription strengths and is available in the form of tablets, caplets, and an oral suspension (liquid).
 
If you are using this medication to treat osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis symptoms, for example, your healthcare provider may recommend 600 mg of Motrin three or four times a day. If symptoms do not improve, your doctor may recommend increasing the dose, up to a maximum of 3200 mg a day.
 
To help decrease the risk of serious side effects, it's important to take the lowest effective dose for the least amount of time in order to treat your condition. Also, if you are taking Motrin to help relieve arthritis symptoms, it may take one to two weeks for it to work to its full potential. However, Motrin typically helps to relieve pain in about one hour.
