Brufen Retard Description

Your doctor may prescribe Brufen Retard which contains 800mg of Ibuprofen Sustained Release to decrease the pain and inflammation of arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, or low back pain. This means your body is receiving a steady and continual dose of medication throughout the day to reduce pain and inflammation so you can perform your daily tasks in comfort.

Brufen Retard and other anti-inflammatory pain killers are also beneficial to treat toothaches, headaches, menstrual pain, and sprains or strains. It is not advised to take any NSAID long-term as it can cause irritation to the lining of your gut which is why you should only take Brufen Retard for the time specified by your doctor. A lower dose NSAID may be recommended for your daily arthritis pain.

How Does Brufen Retard Work?

When taken as directed, Brufen Retard blocks the action of a certain enzyme called Cyclooxygenase or COX-1 and -2 that are important for producing prostaglandins and other chemicals in your body as a response to injury. With a reduction of prostaglandins, you experience less swelling, redness, fever, and pain and you are able to rest and heal. Although pain is useful as a warning that something is wrong, once we are aware of any injury or circumstance, we cannot tell our brain that things are okay now. This is why your doctor can help by prescribing an anti inflammatory drug to help decrease the actions of body chemicals and allow you to resume your regular activities.

Conditions Treated by Brufen Retard

Brufen Retard is a non-steroidal anti inflammatory drug (NSAID) believed to be stronger than aspirin for treating soft tissue injuries and dental pain. It also appears that Brufen Retard and other Ibuprofen drugs are better at reducing inflammation and pain that can occur for some women that experience period pain and it’s more cost effective than the meds marketed specifically for that purpose.

Before Brufen Retard is Prescribed

Ask your doctor about any risks with taking Brufen Retard while you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. To determine if Brufen Retard is right for you, tell your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have and any medication you take or use regularly, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements.

Brufen Retard Precautions

Do not give Brufen Retard to children under the age of twelve. Until you know how your body will react to Brufen Retard, you should avoid driving, operating machinery, or performing any task considered unsafe if you are not alert. Taking Brufen Retard with food can lower the risk of stomach irritation. All medications should be stored out of children’s reach and never share them with anyone else.
