In this segment we discuss the ceiling effect of NSAIDs, the max dose at which pain relief is obtained. Higher doses and longer courses can lead to adverse effects without more pain control. The generally accepted ceiling dose for pain control is 600 mg for ibuprofen and 10 mg for ketorolac (IV/IM/PO). There may be more anti-inflammatory effect with higher doses in conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis.
