Motrin Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Ibuprofen is a medication in the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug NSAID class that is used for treating pain, fever, and inflammation. This includes painful menstrual periods, migraines, and rheumatoid arthritis. It may also be used to close a patent ductus arteriosus in a premature baby. It can be used by mouth or intravenously. It typically begins working within an hour.
Leslie Kernisan published a piece for BETTER HEALTH website mentioning the risks for older adults over the consumption of MOTRIN (Ibuprofen): “Be careful or avoid this common class of painkillers. At the drugstore, the most common alternatives to acetaminophen are ibuprofen (brand names Advil and Motrin) and naproxen (brand names Aleve, Naprosyn, and Anaprox). Both of these are part of a class of drugs known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Many people are familiar with these medications. But in fact, older adults should be very careful before using NSAIDs often or regularly. Unlike acetaminophen, which usually doesn’t become much riskier as people get older, NSAIDs have side-effects that are especially likely to cause harm as people get older. These include an increased risk of bleeding in the stomach, small bowel, or colon. Seniors who take daily aspirin or a blood-thinner are at especially high risk. Problems with the stomach lining, which can cause stomach pain or even peptic ulcer disease. Decreased kidney function. This can be especially problematic for those many older adults who have already experienced a chronic decline in kidney function. Interference with high blood pressure medications. Fluid retention and increased risk of heart failure”
Leslie Lubell Williamson says"This service sucks! Signed up for a phone visit and no one called. Customer service was no help. Trying to get refund."
Chelle Martin says"I use this a lot, and it seems like every time I have to tell the doctor what prescription to write me."
JD Offices says"Don't waste your time or hard earned money. In 8 minutes I wasted $59. The doctor had no real information on my condition (hyperhidrosis) and told me to visit a dermatologists. She read some information from online (basically what I had done already) I asked for a prescription, and if she couldn't do that, why take my appointment. What a complete waste of money."
JR Petti says"Would give them no stars if could. This is a scam, they dont provide any service and even if you dont connect with a doctor they will charge you. Connection attempts keep dropping and no support or dispute process."
