I am pretty religious about making sure to have things in my stomach before taking ibuprofen. But you can still cause problems if you are taking too much.

However, after going to the doctor today, that did NOT end up being my problem. I'm pregnant and it might be ectopic and, well, now I'm just a ball of panic. I hope it's not ectopic. We've been trying. I'm having all the feelings right now.
