I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Run to Win25 Marathons, 17 Ultras, 16 States (Full List)
Best not to take them at all. Why do you take them? 2-4 per day is likely safe tho.

One ibuprofen is a subtherapuetic dose in adults. Take one pill and you expose yourself to the risks without any of the benefits. Diclofenac is dosed differently than ibuprofen and comes in many dose forms, so it is hard to know what you mean when you say one pill. How many milligrams? Then again, it really does not matter, because the risks are there at most doses.
I have never seen (or heard of) a case of NSAID-induced ARF in a healthy individual due strictly to athletic participation while taking an NSAID
What about Naproxen or Aspirin for anti-inflammation? This post has focused completely on Vitamin I.

Other than that I sort of enjoy the pain--proof that I've HTFUd. It generally doesn't last too long, anyhow.
