Ibuprofen is a painkiller that is part of the group of drugs known as NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). Ibuprofen not only relieves pain, but also has a fever-reducing and anti-inflammatory effect. Ibuprofen is prescribed for, amongst other things, headaches, migraines, arthrosis (worn joints), muscle pain, menstrual complaints and flu. It is also prescribed to treat joint inflammation, in people suffering from gout, rheumatism or Bechterew’s disease, for example.

Ibuprofen and the benefit of DNA analysis

The rate at which ibuprofen is processed within your body varies from one individual to another. This means that the efficacy and side effects of ibuprofen can be predicted to some extent on the basis of your genes. Preventive DNA analysis can therefore be an important tool in optimising your medication.
