Ibuprofen, What is it?
Ibuprofen is a NSAID (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug) - the term used for a whole group of medications that have pain relieving and anti-inflammatory properties. It therefore works at the site of pain by blocking the production of the chemicals that cause pain and inflammation in the tissues of the body (these chemicals are called prostaglandins). Salt formats of ibuprofen such as sodium and lysine are modified versions of the NSAID, ibuprofen. Because they are both more water soluble than ibuprofen acid, they help the painkiller dissolve faster.
What can it be used for?
It is effective for headache, fever, neuralgia and symptoms of cold and flu. It is also especially effective on pains such as dental pain, period pain, rheumatic pain, muscular pain, backache and any pain accompanied by swelling.
Codeine, What is it?
Codeine is an opioid painkiller. It works directly on the site of pain receptors and through the spinal chord (to alter the way pain is perceived). It can be used in combination with ibuprofen or paracetamol for effective pain relief.
What can it be used for?
For the short-term treatment of acute mild to moderate pain.
