    Hi All,

    If anyone is on this drug regularly and for any length of time, do ask your gp to send you for regular kidney function tests.

    It was only by chance when I had a blood test before my op that it was discovered that ibuprofen was badly affecting my kidneys. In all the years I’ve been on the drug, I have never been sent for a blood test.

    So now I have to come off this drug. Really hoping the alternative drug works as well.

    Annie, so glad it was discovered before causing real problems.

    Coincidentally I’ve been affected by the ibuprofen in Ibugel – it has caused acid reflux and the condition known as GORD, Gastro-oesophageal Reflux Disease. So even a rub on gel isn’t immune from causing unpleasant side effects. Take care everyone!

    Yes again, I get gord from NSAIDs, and they also worsen tinnitus for me, I take them pill and gel as and when, but never regularly, Barry

    Hi Dalhousie,

    The consultant’s getting in touch with my gp with alternative, but I just can’t remember what she said it was! Guess I’ll know soon. Hope so, because I’ve lowered the dose of ibuprofen and I HURT!
