    Hi Lorna, same boat as you, my pharmacy told me they run out of 500mg so i asked if they had 250’s instead and just doubled up. I cannot take ibuprofen as i’m chronic asthmatic also it does nothing for me. personally I think its a load of rubbish its the pharmarcy companies making a shortage, so they can up their prices to GP surgeries ect. Take care and best wishes. Lee
