Ahhhh see I am in absolute horror at the 400mg Ibuprofen tablets. It is such nasty stuff, particularly if OD’ed on, and people have been using 200mg tablets for years and years I just see it as a disaster waiting to happen as majority of people used to popping 2 tablets as usual and as paracetamol. We ended up wiht a packet and I’ve written all over the box 1 TABLET ONLY.
I used to have have TERRIBLE hayfever (lie in bed in the dark with a cold cloth over my face every afternoon for weeks). My sister sent me the really strong ones from the UK when I first got here and then I went to the pharmacy and got given some homeopathic stuff called Rhinallergy. The first year I was popping them all day long for months and it didn’t provide a cure but it became bearable. Second year a greatly reduced amount of tablets, for a shorter period, ditto third year after that it was only the odd one on bad days. These days I honestly barely need to have one - maybe a couple of days at most. I’m sure it helps that I live here now rather than in the Aude with all that wind blowing the pollen around but still!
