Should I do anything as I think I took another Ibuprofen 400 tablet after only 3 hours rather than 4 hours. I feel absolutely fine in myself with no adverse feelings

Let me review your question for a minute and I will get back to you.

I need more information regarding your symptoms/question to help you more efficiently.

What is your exact question? Are you concerned about taking an early dose of ibuprofen and possible side effects?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I was concerned about taking an early dose. It is now an hour after I took that tablet and feel fine. A little tired but it is 23.45hrs which is my normal sleep time.

Thank you very much.

The maximum daily dose of ibuprofen is 3200 mg per day.

The dosing frequency is also variable, like 400mg every 4 hours or 800 mg 3 to 4 times daily.

Considering these facts, I don't see any reason why you should be worried.

Stay relaxed.

Thank you
