Let's Take Ibuprofen Together is a catchphrase used in a series of memes where an anime character holds out their hand and asks that the viewer takes the headache and pain-relieving medicine Ibuprofen with them. The meme was originally posted to Tumblr in July 2022 using an image of a character from the manga series Benigyokuzui and spread over the following months in memes where the phrase is attributed to characters in similar poses, sharing a comparable style to My Little PogChamp memes.


On July 1st, 2022, now deactivated Tumblr[1] user partyanimalskorea posted a piece of fan art of a character from the hentai series Benigyokuzui holding out her hand and smiling, captioned, "lets take ibuprofen together" (shown below, left). Tumblr user sweetnrr reblogged the post with another photograph of the post nailed to a tree (shown below, center). Another Tumblr user, sug4rc4ne, reblogged it with an edit of the post nailed to a tree resembling one from the Slender Man video game (shown below, right). The post gained over 51,800 notes in two months. The artwork was originally posted to Safebooru[2] in November 2011.
