Ibuprofen

Ibuprofen is an NSAID used to treat fever and pain from arthritis, menstrual cramps, and muscular aches. It works by reducing inflammation. Ibuprofen is a generic medication, and is available both over-the-counter and by prescription depending on the strength. Prescription Motrin had the same active ingredient, but has been discontinued. Over-the-counter brands include Advil and Motrin IB. 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. Compare NSAIDs.

10 Medications You Shouldn’t Mix With Alcohol

Dr. Sharon Orrange - April 04, 2017

“Can I have a drink while I’m taking my medication?” This is a question that primary care doctors are frequently asked, rightly so.

How Do I Say That? The Art and Science of Naming Drugs

Tori Marsh - March 30, 2017

Working with prescription drugs every day, I constantly find myself pausing over their obscure names that are oftentimes impossible to pronounce. Xeljanz? Idarucizumab? Tecfidera? How did these crazy names come to be, and who can we blame? I was interested, so I went down the rabbit hole…

Drugs have (at least) three names.

Right when a drug is developed, the naming process begins, starting with the chemical name. See More

Is It Safe to Take Tylenol (Acetaminophen) with Advil or Motrin (Ibuprofen)?

Dr. Sharon Orrange - July 21, 2015

Yes, you can take them together, and they even work better in combination than separately. Several large studies have shown that ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) and acetaminophen (Tylenol) together work well to relieve pain, with few side effects. In fact, for many things like dental pain, they work better than many of the opioid-containing pain meds (like Vicodin or Norco).

Why is the combination safe?
Acetaminophen is cleared by the liver, while ibuprofen is cleared by the kidneys. See More

5 Common Medications That Can Kill

Dr. Sharon Orrange - July 13, 2015

You probably already know that many prescriptions have side effects. Most are mild—annoying issues like nausea or sleepiness that are inconvenient at worst. Others, however, can be deadly.

A very small number of medications are responsible for the majority of adverse side effects and hospitalizations from harmful drug reactions. How bad are these drugs? Between 2007 to 2009, almost 100,000 patients older than 65 had emergency hospitalizations for dangerous drug reactions, and almost 20,000 people die from prescription drug overdoses annually. See More
