Makes you sleepy yes
Not at all!!.it takes the pain away.n no drowsyness.it's like advil!!..but it also depends on the brand.ask for non-drowsy!!
makes me sleepy
Of course. You're taking it for pain-relief so it has to remove some of your ability to sense the world around you. Personally, I wouldn't take it.
no.its non drowsy
i usually dont get drowsy from them, but diff drugs work diff for others!
No it doesn't have that effect on me but Tramadol does.
Never heard of that. It is an anti-inflammatory and to a lesser extent, an antipyretic (fever reducer). The most common side effect is stomach upset. The risk can be reduced by taking it with food.
only if you take too much of it
It doesn't make me drowsy, but if my pain is taken away, I do relax more and thus might get sleepy.
should'nt make you sleepy its an anti inflammatory not a sedative.no codeine in it either
well it affects people in different ways far as making you drowsy, it is a good pain reliever but may i give you a waning from some one with experience don't use it long term for pain it thins your blood and weakens your blood vessels i almost bleed to death with a sinus anurism due to taking ibuprofen
Actually, it keeps me awake.maybe I'm just weird.
i say no it doesnt.
other pain killers like codiene can make you drowsy but i've never had ibuprofen affect me like that.
if you feel that it is affecting you like that then it would be a good idea to consult your GP
this is a drug, I would say most drug you take would make you drowsy.
It affects different people in different ways, if you've been unable to sleep because of a problem, and ibuprofen releaves that problem, then it's only natural that you would probably want to sleep !
I use to feel a bit pleasantly sleepy!
It shouldn't.

Ibuprofen is an NSAID (Non steroidal Anti-Inflamitary Drug). It causes no drowsiness, blocks pain, lowers fever, and IIRC is a mild muscle relaxant as well.

It's also extreemly hard to OD on. The only major sideeffect being gastric reflux if taken on an empty stomach (The gastric reflux can cause an ulcer over time if you're not careful & use too much for too long).
It makes me want to clinton-- like get to the toilet right now!!
Ibeuprofen is an Anti Inflamatory drug and belongs to the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs category all the drugs in this group reduce inflammation caused by the body's own immune system, and are effective pain killers.

Ibuprofen can be used to relieve pain such as muscular aches and pains, rheumatic pain period pains, headache, backache, dental pain and neuralgia. It can also be used reduce feverishness and the symptoms of colds and flu.

Ibuprofen shouldn't make you drowsy (I use if for back pains and has never made me drowsy). It has been linked to damage of both the Kidneys and the Liver if used for a long period of time (especially if used with diuretics or ACE inhibitors)

It can give you a bad stomache ache/ nausea if taken on an empty stomache (definitely not advised!)
not as a rule no,but you shouldn't take on an empty stomach,eat something first
Most anti-inflamatories do. Look for a natural alternative, I did when I had two exploded discs in my spine .. where else.
Believe me, they work every bit as good as chemical garbage, and don'y kill you with side-effects.
