Motrin and Miscarriage

Beware!  If you are pregnant, or trying to become pregnant, avoid NSAIDS (Motrin, Aleve, ibuprofen, naproxen, and I'd even add aspirin unless you're taking it for other issues). According to this study published in the Journal of the Canadian Medical Association

"Gestational exposure to any type or dosage of nonaspirin NSAIDs may increase the risk of spontaneous abortion. These drugs should be used with caution during pregnancy."

This means that a link has been established between women who take these sorts of pain medications in early pregnancy and subsequent miscarriage. 

Be safe, and avoid them!
