" class="bodyimage" /> Q. I take 600 mg to 1200 mg of Motrin every day for headaches. My doctor wants me to take aspirin for my heart. Is there a conflict?

A. The ibuprofen (Motrin) you take may counteract the heart protecting power of aspirin. What’s more, so much ibuprofen can create a vicious headache cycle. Please discuss this with a headache specialist.

My ears have been ringing for a long time; the ringing started after my taking two 800 mg prescription Motrin within 36 hours.

Does any body else have knowledge about ear ringing from taking MOTRIN? I KNOW that aspirin can cause ringing, and I have been on baby aspirin since 2004. But, the ringing did not start until I took the 2 MOTRIN (1600 mg total) within 1-1/2 days.

Thanks for any information.
