Ibuprofen is a medication in the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) class that is used for treating painfever, and inflammation.


Common side effects include heartburn and a rash. Compared to other NSAIDs it may have fewer side effects such as gastrointestinal bleeding.It increases the risk of heart failurekidney failure, and liver failure. At low doses, it does not appear to increase the risk of myocardial infarction; however, at higher doses it may. Ibuprofen can also result in worsened asthma. While it is unclear if it is safe in early pregnancy. It appears to be harmful in later pregnancy and therefore is not recommended.
