2. Thanks, Manny!



I posted this mostly because the first 50 or so links that pop up will tell you that Ibuprofen is hard on the kidneys. As you say, in rel life, it hasn't emerged. I will say, I would be cautious with any medication in someone with a fever (esp. a child) who may also be dehydrated. I think what we have here is an original report that Ibuprofen might be bad for the kidneys in certain situations that got simplified to a simple bad for the kidneys and passed around from place to place for years. If you've read The Big Fat Surprise or Good calories, Bad Calories, you've seen this same phenomenon regarding dietary advice.

(I have tried Naproxon, but for me, a lower dose of Ibuprofen is a lot more effective. )
