Ibuprofen Rhabdomyolysis Reviews

Wed, 13 Apr 2011

I started taking Advil the last two days. I was shocked when I gained6 pounds in two days and had hardly time to eat due to a major activity which required lots of energy. I also felt stomach boating andswelling in the ankles. I would describe this as water retention. During these two days I took 8 liquid tablets daily (200 mg.) My weight very seldom fluctuates so drastically and I attribute this to the Advil tablets.
