Ibuprin
Ibuprofen - Oral


Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), which relieves pain and swelling (inflammation). It is used to treat headaches, muscle aches, backaches, dental pain, menstrual cramps, arthritis, or athletic injuries. Ibuprin is also used to reduce fever and to relieve minor aches and pain due to the common cold or flu. Ibuprin works by blocking the enzyme in your body that makes prostaglandins. Decreasing prostaglandins helps to reduce pain, swelling, and fever.

  • Use a sunscreen and wear protective clothing when outdoors.

  • Ibuprin should be used only when clearly needed during the first 6 months of pregnancy.
  • It is not recommended for use during the last 3 months of pregnancy due to the potential for fetal harm and interference with normal labor/delivery.
  • Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor.
  • Ibuprin passes into breast milk.
  • While there have been no reports of harm to nursing infants, consult your doctor before breast-feeding.

Missed Dose
  • If you are prescribed Ibuprin on a regular schedule (not just as needed ) and you miss a dose, use it as soon as you remember.
  • If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose and resume your usual dosing schedule.
  • Do not double the dose to catch up.

Drug Interactions
  • Before using Ibuprin, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all prescription and nonprescription products you may use, especially of: alendronate, other medications for arthritis (e.g., aspirin, methotrexate), blood thinners (e.g., warfarin), corticosteroids (e.g., prednisone), cyclosporine, high blood pressure drugs (including ACE inhibitors such as captopril, angiotensin II receptor antagonists such as losartan, and beta-blockers such as metoprolol), lithium, other NSAIDs (e.g., naproxen, celecoxib), water pills (diuretics such as furosemide, hydrochlorothiazide, triamterene).
  • Check all prescription and nonprescription medicine labels carefully since many contain pain relievers/fever reducers (NSAIDs such as aspirin or naproxen) which are similar to Ibuprin.
  • If you are also taking aspirin, as prescribed by your doctor for reasons such as heart attack or stroke prevention (usually these dosages are 81-325 mg per day), continue to take the aspirin and consult your doctor or pharmacist before taking ibuprofen.
  • Do not start or stop any medicine without doctor or pharmacist approval.
