800mg ibuprofen every 6 hrs for extreme and chronic pain (skeletal, muscular) seems to cause weak urine stream. Is it just me?
If your urine is less than usual, you should get the kidney function checked. If the amount is the same just the stream is weak, it's rare. Do you also feel muscle weakness somewhere else?
Adverse reactions of ibuprofen:

1. 16% of long-term drug users may have gastrointestinal adverse reactions, including dyspepsia, gastric burning, stomachache, nausea, and vomiting. Generally, it is not necessary to stop taking drugs and continue taking tolerable. Less than 1% of the patients had gastric ulcer and gastrointestinal bleeding.
2. 1%-3% of patients may have adverse neurological reactions such as headache, sleepiness, vertigo and tinnitus.
3. Rare adverse reactions include lower limb edema, renal insufficiency, rash, bronchial asthma, abnormal liver function, leukopenia, etc.
It is recommended that you use other drugs of the same type instead or consult a professional doctor to change the dosage.
