About this book

Ibuprofen is one of the most successful drugs used worldwide for the treatment of mild to moderate pain and various inflammatory conditions. Over the past 40 years, ibuprofen has been proven to be as safe or even safer and also as effective as the established non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and the coxibs. This well-written book reviews the pharmacology, clinical uses and the various adverse effects of Ibuprofen, the disposition and unique modes of action in relation to clinical effects of the drug as well as various formulations. The use of combinations with other drugs (e.g. paracetamol, codeine, caffeine) are critically assessed and the impact of natural products and Chinese Medicines on the safety of ibuprofen.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book is intended for a broad readership -- anyone interested in the properties, actions, and uses of ibuprofen. This book serves this aim very well … . The book is of great value for anyone who wants to understand the historical development and clinical utility of a very popular nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) … . This is an outstanding historical and factual account of ibuprofen, one of the most widely used analgesic/antipyretic/anti-inflammatory drugs today.” (Thomas L. Pazdernik, Doody’s Book Reviews, May, 2013)
