May be that ibuprofen (=generic name) gives some relief in CPH, at least in such a high dosage - but it's n o t the drug of the first choice for it !
Daniel should get indometacin (=generic name), which is the ideal treatment for CPH. It's a completely different drug and it aborts the CPH attacks completely, too.
Both ibuprofen and indometacin may cause a severe gastritis or even gastric or duodenal ulcers and should always be taken along with gastroprotective drugs like ranitidine or omeprazol.
Good luck !
