How much ibuprofen is too much for a 15 year old girl?

I m having really painful menstrual cramps right now, so I ve resorted to taking ibuprofen to help relieve the pain a bit. I took two 200mg tablets around 4am this morning, another two at noon, and i was wondering if it would be safe to take two more before bed. It is currently 8pm.

I am 15 and weigh around 130lbs.

400mg every 6 hours or so is not too bad. That's the regular non-prescription dose. A doctor might give you more. Ibuprofen is pretty harmless in the short term for most people, but it's not a good idea to take it day after day, week after week. But your period won't last that long (hopefully).

(Boy, am I glad I'm a guy!)

Read the label.

You should be fine, as long as there are at least 6 hours between doses you're okay.

It will state on the bottle, what is acceptable dosage. Usually maximum 2 pills, 4 times a day.
