Ibuprofen Non-Prescription

Ibuprofen is an NSAID used to treat fever and minor aches and pains. It works by reducing inflammation. Ibuprofen is a generic medication, and is available both over-the-counter and by prescription depending on the strength. Over-the-counter brands include Advil and Motrin IB. Prescription Motrin had the same active ingredient, but has been discontinued. Ibuprofen should be used only when needed as it may increase risk of stroke or heart attack and long term use can cause stomach bleeding and ulcers. The lowest GoodRx price for the most common version of ibuprofen non-prescription is around $1.74, 67% off the average retail price of $5.37. Compare NSAIDs.
