I tried it and really regretted it as it caused me to get depressed for a week. So maybe don't try it if you've ever had problems with depression.

also, you could really mess up your body if you take 600 mg 4 times a day.

But I'm using topical ibuprofen gel and loving it.
The total dose is low because I'm only applying it where I need it, it works out at the equivalent of about 1/4 of a pill a day.
It seems very effective.
I'm in the UK, and topical ibuprofen (5%) is widely available in all the supermarkets as a sports rub. I've never tried it on sports injuries, but it seems really good for acne to me.
It seems to be invisible, klnd to skin, doesn't bleach clothes, it's cheap and effective.

I found that topical ibuprofen worked, I never took the pills for long enough to be sure either way.
where they mention ibuprofen and naproxen (both cox inhibitors, naproxen is a cox-2 inhibitor).

still laughing at whoever suggested 600mg 4x a day. anything over 400mg is usually too much for the average joe, especially if its just cause of some bumps on your face!!!

With the pills you have to max out the dose, LionQueen apparently tried it, and I think it worked a bit, but COX-2 inhibitor pills (Alleve) work better for monthly acne with pills.
