Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used for pain relief, fever reduction, and against swelling. Ibuprofen has an antiplatelet effect, though relatively mild and somewhat short-lived compared with aspirin or prescription antiplatelet drugs. In general, ibuprofen also acts as a vasoconstrictor. Ibuprofen is a ‘core’ medicine in the World Health Organization’s Model List of Essential Medicines necessary to meet the minimum medical needs of a basic healthcare system.
