Back when I was tap dancing with a Dance Company, we were lucky enough to
have a company doctor who travelled with us, and pointed out on several
occasions that if you need more mg. of ibuprofen, you can simply double or
triple the dosage of the OTC and save the trouble of getting a prescription.
I'm hoping to get my hands of some of that wonderful Ibuprofen gel next time
I'm in Canada.
Although I guess I've been warned about slathering it in my eyes to try to
cure my myopia -- that was really funny.
