Running and Motrin (Ibuproen) (Read 2369 times)

     

    Everything I said about ibuprofen applies to all NSAIDs, including naproxen.

     I thought of you this weekend Trent.  I ran the Steamtown marathon, and at about mile 6 or so there was a spectator handing out Ibuprofen.  I thought you would be proud.

    Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say, It is well, it is well with my soul.

      I've read that aspirin does not cause the same malfunction, particularly if adequate hydration is maintained. I take a daily aspirin and run 3 to 6 days per week.  Have I been misinformed?

        Daily aspirin for vascular care (i.e., 81 or 325 mg, once daily) is safe for most people.  Multiple doses of aspiring and/or higher doses is likely to have similar risk to other NSAIDs.

          I was on the bus ride up to my first marathon this last June.  Next to me were two seasoned marathoners discussing the veritable drug stores they were packing in their shorts.

           

          I felt woefully unprepared as all I had in my shorts was two Hammer Gels...

          Just because I look dumb doesn't mean I'm not...

             I know there's a joke there somewhere.

              My advice: don't use this line to try to pick up women...

               

              Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."

                Trent, how about Tylenol 8 hour ?

                  The main problem with tylenol is that you cannot drink alcohol, and running without beer is just not worthwhile.

                    Everything you say is true, assuming you are taking the NSAIDs in doses far beyond the normal recommended levels.  Her comment after I read your post to her was, "yes, that's true if you took half a bottle".

                      Yes.  And at regular doses too.

                       

                      At regular doses, some people will encounter renal failure and GI bleeding.  It is rare, or else these drugs would not be available over the counter.  But it is not as rare as you might think.  And certain activities increase the risk.  One of those activities is running.

                        So taking 4 Excedrin every day probably wasn't a good idea for me, huh?  Yikes.  Now I'm on amitriptyline (10 mg a day), and that takes care of most of my headaches.  I've been tested, and the conclusion was that my headaches are just due to tension.

                          Teresa -- if your headaches are due to tension -- then my prescription for you is more running......that will relieve the tension..........

                            Well, I thought running would help in that area, but that's the one thing it hasn't done for me!  In general, though, I feel much better (and am in a much better mood according to my kids!).

                              There are other fun activities that reduce tension also.

                                Yeah, but when I smoke weed it makes me so hongry.

                                Passion is a rather frightening thing because if you have passion you don't know where it will take you.

                                 

                                When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
