Patient Reviews: How Ibuprofen Has Made a Difference

What is Ibuprofen?

Ibuprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) which is used to treat pain, inflammation and fever. It is available in 400mg and 600mg from our secure online pharmacy.

While Ibuprofen is effective on its own to treat pain and inflammation, there are a number of products, available over-the-counter from pharmacies, which contain Ibuprofen alongside other pain relief medication.

You may find ibuprofen in treatments for colds and flu, painful periods, joint ache (arthritis) and back pain. Moreover, ibuprofen is available in a number of different formulations, including syrups, gels and creams, as well as tablets and capsules.

If you don't have time to visit your pharmacy, you can get Ibuprofen 400mg online from Prescription Doctor following a short online consultation. Simply complete our online questionnaire and our doctor will assess your case and determine whether Ibuprofen is suitable for you.

Orders approved before 3pm on weekdays and dispatched from our UK based pharmacy the same day via a next-day delivery service.

How does Ibuprofen work?

Ibuprofen blocks cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzymes which help the body to synthesise prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are chemicals released in response to pain. When the prostaglandins reach the site of the injury, they cause inflammation.

By blocking the enzyme, the prostaglandins stop being produced and their effects are reduced.

You can order Ibuprofen online from Prescription Doctor. Simply complete our short medical questionnaire to determine if the treatment is right for you.

What health conditions can Ibuprofen treat?

Ibuprofen is commonly used to help a variety of health conditions such as:

  • Period pain
  • Toothache
  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Backache
  • Sports injuries
  • Joint pain
  • Muscle sprains

This is just a few of the conditions Ibuprofen can be used with. If you are suffering from moderate to severe pain due to other issues, then the chances it could be of relevance and use to you too.

Our online doctor can determine if Ibuprofen is suitable for you. All you need to do is answer a few questions about your general health and condition for our doctor to review.

Depending on the severity of your condition, as well as how well you respond to treatment, your dosage may need to be adjusted. Prescription Doctor offers Ibuprofen 400mg and Ibuprofen 600mg through our online prescription service.

How do I take Ibuprofen?

For adults, take one or two tablets with a glass of water every four hours during or shortly after eating. If you experience indigestion after taking Ibuprofen, try taking them with a small glass of milk.

Always follow the doctors prescription and do not exceed the recommended or prescribed dose.

Do not take more than 1,200mg of Ibuprofen in any 24-hour period.

Information on how to take Ibuprofen can be found in the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medicine.

If you are unsure about how to take Ibuprofen, speak to your doctor or ask a pharmacist for advice.

What are the side effects of Ibuprofen?

Like all medication, Ibuprofen can cause side effects, though not everyone experiences them. Being aware of the side effects associated with your medicine is an important part of your treatment.

We encourage you to familiarise yourself with the information detailed in the patient information leaflet before beginning your treatment.

You can view the patient information leaflet for Ibuprofen online.

Commonly reported side effects include:

  • Nausea and sickness
  • Abdominal discomfort
  • Diarrhoea
  • Indigestion

Ibuprofen and other NSAIDs can cause heartburn in some people. In order to combat this, heartburn treatments such as Omeprazole or Lansoprazole can be prescribed by our online doctor.

If you experience any of the following side effects shortly after taking Ibuprofen, seek immediate medical attention:

  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Involuntary eye movement (nystagmus)

This is not an exhaustive list of side effects. Further information regarding the safety of Ibuprofen can be found in the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medicine.

If you experience any side effects, regardless of whether they are listed above or in the patient information leaflet, inform your doctor or speak to a pharmacist for advice. You can also contact the NHS 111 service for advice on how to manage any side effects you experience.

Allergic reaction

Do not take Ibuprofen if you are allergic to Ibuprofen or any other ingredients listed in the accompanying leaflet.

If you experience an allergic reaction to Ibuprofen, stop taking the medicine and seek emergency medical attention by going straight to the A&E department of the nearest hospital. Take any packaging and remaining medicine with you so that doctors know exactly what you have taken.

  • Raised, itchy, red rash (hives)
  • Stomach pain, nausea, vomiting or diarrhoea

Pregnancy and breastfeeding

Do not take Ibuprofen if you are pregnant, think you might be pregnant or breastfeeding. Speak to your doctor for further information.

You should ask a doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking NSAIDs while pregnant or breastfeeding. Your GP would be in the best position to advise you on the right pain medication to take.

Other safety information

Always read the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medicine before you take it.

Do not take Ibuprofen past the expiry date printed on the packaging.

Never throw away medicine via household or water waste. Ask your local pharmacy to dispose of any unwanted or expired medication on your behalf.

Always keep medicine out of the sight and reach from children and pets.

Never share your medication with anyone else, even if they are experiencing the same symptoms as you.

  • You have asthma
  • You have kidney problems
  • You have liver problems
  • You have heart failure
  • You’re pregnant or breastfeeding
  • You’ve ever had any reaction to other NSAIDs

If you are unsure whether Ibuprofen is suitable for you, speak to your doctor.

It’s also important to mention any existing health conditions or other medicines you may already be taking when you go through your free assessment. This is to ensure we can offer you the most suitable drug for your requirements and reduce the risk of it interacting with anything else you’re taking.

Please inform our doctor of all medicine you are currently taking, including those prescribed by your doctor or bought over the counter, as well as health and herbal supplements.

Frequently asked questions

What should I do if I forget to take Ibuprofen when I should?

If you forget to take Ibuprofen when you should, take it as soon as you remember. If it is nearly time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue to take Ibuprofen as you normally would. Do not take more Ibuprofen to make up for the dose you missed.

What should I do if I take more Ibuprofen than I should?

If you accidentally take more Ibuprofen than you should, seek immediate medical attention by contacting your doctor right away or going to the accident and emergency department of the nearest hospital. Take the packaging with you, even if it's empty, so that doctors know exactly what you've taken.

Will Ibuprofen affect my ability to drive or operate machinery?

It is unlikely that Ibuprofen will affect your ability to drive or operate machinery. However, if Ibuprofen is taken with other medication, you may experience dizziness or sleepiness. If you experience any side effects which may impair your concentration, you should avoid driving or operating machinery until you feel well enough to do so.

Can I drink alcohol while taking Ibuprofen?

You should avoid alcohol while taking Ibuprofen. Drinking alcohol may increase your risk of side effects such as nausea or dizziness.

Can you take ibuprofen with other analgesics?

It is generally regarded as safe to take ibuprofen alongside paracetamol and other painkillers.

Always speak to your doctor or pharmacist about taking multiple medicines to ensure it is safe to do so.

Is Ibuprofen addictive?

Ibuprofen is not an addictive substance and it is highly unlikely to become addicted to Ibuprofen. If you are worried you may be developing an addiction to prescription painkillers, however, you should speak to your doctor.

How much ibuprofen can you take in a day?

Adults should not take more than 2400 mg a day.

If you are unsure about the maximum daily dose of your medicine, check the label or read the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medicine.

Is Ibuprofen the same as Brufen?

Brufen is a brand of Ibuprofen. Other brands of Ibuprofen include Nurofen and Calprofen. They all contain the same active ingredient - Ibuprofen - albeit at different amounts. You should speak to your doctor or pharmacist to find the most suitable treatment for you.

Is Ibuprofen stronger than paracetamol?

Unlike paracetamol, which works at the site of pain and doesn't reduce inflammation, Ibuprofen works across the body to reduce inflammation. Studies have proven Ibuprofen to be more effective at treating certain types of pain, such as headaches, than paracetamol.

How long does Ibuprofen take to work?

Ibuprofen starts working between 20 and 30 minutes after it is taken by mouth. Topical administration of Ibuprofen may take up to 2 days to start working.
