If you are using this drug and have any risks of hypertension, beware. I took it last October while traveling for my back pain and overnight, my pressure shot up to 220/110, had to get emergency care and return home to my own doctor. I've saddled with high blood pressure ever since.
Now I am recovering from a severely abscessed tooth extracted Monday. but over the weekend was desperate for pain relief so of course I risked taking Motrin again. It relieved theain but it has taken 3 days for my bp to return to normal even on my bp med Losartan.
The manufacturer now lists hypertension as a known side effect, which they were not doing last year. Ibuprofen is also found in Advil...please take with caution
