Brufen 400 mg containing Ibuprofen (active ingredient) is an NSAID or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. This pain relief medication reduces hormones in the body that cause inflammation and pain in the body. Ibuprofen is primarily used for relief from pain or inflammation induced by conditions such as arthritis, headache, toothache, back pain, menstrual cramps, or minor injury.
Before taking Brufen 400 mg pain relief medication, make sure to discuss all the points and precautions mentioned above. Ask your doctor if it is safe to use Ibuprofen on top of some other conditions which you may be suffering from such as asthma, polyps in your nose, seizures, bleeding or blood clotting disorder among several others.
You must not use Ibuprofen if you are allergic to it, to sulfa drugs, or other NSAIDs. Consult your doctor before taking an antidepressant medication like fluoxetine, escitalopram, citalopram, fluvoxamine, or others. These medications when taken with NSAIDs may cause easy bruising and bleeding. Other drugs which can interact with Brufen 400 mg are warfarin, lithium, methotrexate, diuretics, steroids, aspirin or other NSAIDs (celecoxib, ketoprofen, Diclofenac, naproxen, or others), or heart or blood pressure medications (benazepril, enalapril, lisinopril, quinapril, or others). These are not the only drugs which can interact with Ibuprofen. Inform your doctor about all drugs which you may be using. Never start a new medication without proper medical advice.
Some common and non-serious side effects of Ibuprofen (Motrin, Ibugesic) are nausea, heartburn, headache, upset stomach drowsiness, or dizziness. If any of these effects persist for a longer period or deteriorate, get medical help right away.
Most people don’t get serious side effects due to Ibuprofen but stop using this medication and get emergency medical attention if you experience any of these serious side effects: chest pain; weakness; shortness of breath; slurred speech; problems with vision or balance; black, bloody, or tarry stools; bloody cough or vomit that looks like coffee grounds; stiff neck; unusual weight gain; mood or behavior changes; less urination; or lethargy.
The side effects listed above are not the only ones to occur due to Ibuprofen usage. There may be others.
Your doctor will decide your Brufen dosage after examining you thoroughly. Dosage may depend on several factors like age, the seriousness of the conditions, other conditions, and allergies among several others. Avoid other medicines which contain NSAIDs while taking Ibuprofen, especially if you are taking aspirin to prevent heart attack or stroke. Ibuprofen may interact greatly to reduce the effectiveness of aspirin. If both the medicines are necessary for you, it is recommended that you take Ibuprofen at least 8 hours before or 30 minutes after taking aspirin. Also avoid alcohol while taking this medication as alcohol can lead to stomach bleeding. As Brufen is taken on a need to need basis, you are not likely to miss a dose. However, if you are on a dosing schedule and miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember it. But do not take the missed dose if the time to take the next dose is near. Instead, skip the missed dose and follow the original schedule.
