Why is Ibuprofen prescribed?
Ibuprofen is prescribed to lessen pain and inflammation caused by osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. It is also prescribed to reduce fever and to relieve mild to moderate pain caused by painful menstrual periods, headaches, toothaches, muscle pain, back pain, and the common cold.
What does it do?
Ibuprofen is classified as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) and it works by preventing the production of prostaglandins, which are substances that cause pain, fever, and inflammation in the body. Ibuprofen is a widely used drug and also has several uses for other conditions.
How should I take it?
Ibuprofen is available in 600mg tablets intended for oral administration.
It should be taken with a full glass of water. It is recommended to take Ibuprofen with food or milk to prevent stomach problems. Swallow the tablet as a whole and do not crush, chew, break it in half, or tamper the tablet in any way. Take it at the same time every day if you are prescribed to take it on a regular basis.
Take Ibuprofen exactly as your doctor instructed and do not make alterations in the dosage or frequency. Your doctor will make adjustments to your dosage as necessary.
Always consult your doctor before stopping the medication and clarify any concerns you may have when taking Ibuprofen.
What if I missed a dose?
Taking the dose properly at the scheduled time is needed to attain the desired effect of the drug. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose and catch the next dose at the regular time. Do not take two doses just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before using Ibuprofen?
Ibuprofen may increase your risk of having a heart attack or a stroke. Inform your doctor if you have recently had a heart attack or if you or anyone in your family has or ever had heart disease, a heart attack, a stroke, high blood pressure, blood clots, high cholesterol levels, or diabetes.
Tell your doctor if you have or have had liver disease, kidney disease, asthma, edema, or a connective tissue disease (Lupus, Marfan syndrome, or Sjogren’s syndrome).
Inform your doctor if you have stomach or intestinal ulcers. Ibuprofen may suddenly cause bleeding in your stomach or intestines during treatment which can be fatal.
Tell your doctor if you will undergo heart surgery such as coronary artery bypass graft. You should not take Ibuprofen just before or after the surgery.
Inform your doctor if you are allergic to Ibuprofen, aspirin, any other NSAIDs, or any other medications. Inform your doctor as well if you had an asthma attack or a severe allergic reaction to aspirin or an NSAID before.
