I got a problem with a plot of a function. The function 'pressure' should
decrease monotonically with r. The Plot function is giving a non-monotonic
plot at big r, this is a problem with the resolution of the plot or with the
function? How can I check that?

  \(ro = 10\^3;\)\[IndentingNewLine]
  \(pressure =
      p[r] /. \(DSolve[{D[p[r], r] ==
                1\/\(\(r\^2\) \((1 + r)\)\^3\) -
                  Log[1 + r]\/\(\(r\^3\) \((1 + r)\)\^2\),
              p[ro] == 10\^\(-7\)}, p[r],
  Plot[pressure, {r, ro, 10\^4}, PlotRange -> All]\)
