ibuprofen is one of the best way to treat Sciatica. Normally one should take (for 200mg) 2 in the morning, 2 after lunch, 1 at meal times and 1 before you go to bed. Make sure you eat before the tablets to avoid stomach upset. The reason for the above dosage is that a person tends to be vertical and be more active in during the day thus 2 tablets to help. Once at home in the evening 1 tablet should be fine with intervals of lying down on your back. Ibuprofen helps with the inflamation which is what is exacerbating the sciatica, so taking the tablets regularly dumbs down the inflamation allowing for your body to heal.
