Re: [RC] ibuprofen in your saddle bags - Marirose Six

I, actually, have rarely taken it myself. I mostly carry it (& just about everything else I carry) to give to other people who are in need. But, I think I will switch to the tylenol since I don't know what others may use regularly.

A word of caution:  ibuprofen thins the blood.  If you take it regularly, it will slow clotting if you are injured and bleeding.  No big deal for a little boo boo.  But if you come off your horse and are seriously injured, especially a head trauma, do NOT take ibuprofen.  Tylenol is a safer alternative.

Ahhhh, YES, I forgot the TP in a baggie! Never leave home without it. :o)
Also, I've always got some ibuprofen.
