Ibuprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) which is used to treat pain, inflammation and fever.
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 can 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.
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 buy Ibuprofen online from Prescription Doctor. Simply complete our short medical questionnaire to determine if the treatment is right for you.
Ibuprofen is commonly used to help a variety of health conditions such as:

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

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

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.

If you’re unsure whether Ibuprofen is a suitable drug for you or not, you can ask one of our experts at Prescription Doctor. Contact one of our team – they will be happy to help you.
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.
Read all the patient information leaflet carefully before you start taking this medicine.
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.
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.
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.
You should avoid alcohol while taking Ibuprofen. Drinking alcohol may increase your risk of side effects such as nausea or dizziness.
It is generally regarded as safe to take ibuprofen alongside paracetamol and codeine painkillers.
Always speak to your doctor or pharmacist about taking multiple medicines to ensure it is safe to do so.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
While Ibuprofen can be purchased over-the-counter, Prescription Doctor can provide a stronger dose for those suffering moderate to severe pain.
