Brufen relieves pain and reduces inflammation (swelling, redness or soreness) that may occur:
• in different types of arthritis including rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and juvenile rheumatoid arthritis
• in muscle and bone injuries such as sprains, strains, low back pain (lumbago), rheumatism, and tendonitis, such as tennis elbow
• from swelling and pain after setting broken or dislocated bones
• menstrual cramps (period pain)
• following surgery
• due to dental pain
Brufen also relieves fever (high temperature).
Although Brufen can relieve the symptoms of pain and inflammation, it will not cure your condition.
Brufen belongs to a group of medicines called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs ( or NSAIDs).
Your doctor may have prescribed Brufen for another reason. Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why Brufen has been prescribed for you.
This medicine is available only with a doctor's prescription.
Brufen is not addictive.
