Medicine- good or bad?

I've always taken about 2-3 ibuprofen before my runs and then a couple during my runs. I do this to prevent any pain I might feel. Good or bad idea? I know I'm covering up a problem that I have with my legs, but aren't legs always supposed to hurt during 5-12 hour runs? Mark said that if I'm drinking enough water, taking enough salt, and eating the right foods then my legs shouldn't hurt and medicine isn't necessary. Chris doesn't take it anymore and said he read some article about it that he can't find. :)

Any thoughts?
