You've got to look t what is causing the pain to decide the best way to medicate it. Anti inflammatory med is awsome, but the problem with using Ibuprofen for cp is that you end up using more and more as you build tolerance and over time it can destroy your liver and cause damage your stomach. Short term like a broken arm, or a twisted ankle, or post-post op it is a great drug.
I use it as my 2nd step drug. Tramadol daily x 4, then 800 ibruprofen for aditional pain with swelling in joints, then topicals, then additional tramadol. Ibuprofen plus topicals amost always brings it to functional levels.
