Description of the drug approved by the manufacturer for the printed edition of 2014.


Has anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, analgesic action.
Non-selective inhibits cyclooxygenase-1 and cyclooxygenase-2. The mechanism of action of ibuprofen is due to inhibition of the synthesis of prostaglandins - mediators of pain, inflammation and hyperthermia. Relieves pain syndrome, incl. joint pain at rest and during movement;reduces the morning stiffness and swelling of the joints, contributes to an increase in the volume of movements.

Absorption is high, absorption decreases slightly when taking the drug after meals.
Cmax in blood plasma when taken on an empty stomach is reached after 45 minutes, when taken after meals - after 1.5-2.5 hours, and in synovial fluid - 2-3 hours, where it creates more concentrations than in blood plasma. Relationship with plasma proteins 90%. Slowly penetrates into the joint cavity, lingers in the synovial tissue.
Biological activity is associated with the S-enantiomer.
After absorption, about 60% of the pharmacologically inactive R-form is slowly transformed into an active S-form. The isozyme CYP2C9 is involved in the metabolism of the drug. Exposed to the systemic and post-systemic metabolism in the liver. It has a two-phase kinetics of elimination with T 1/2 2- 2.5 h.
It is excreted by the kidneys (in an unchanged form not more than 1%) and to a lesser extent with bile.
In elderly people, the pharmacokinetic parameters of ibuprofen do not change.

- inflammatory and degenerative diseases of the musculoskeletal system: rheumatoid, juvenile chronic, psoriatic arthritis, osteoarthritis, gouty arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis (Bechterew's disease).
The drug is intended for symptomatic therapy, reducing pain and inflammation at the time of use, the progression of the disease is not affected;
- pain syndrome: myalgia, arthralgia, ossalgia, arthritis, sciatica, migraine, headache (including menstrual syndrome) and toothache, neuralgia, tendonitis, tendovaginitis, bursitis, post-traumatic and postoperative pain syndrome accompanied by inflammation, with cancer diseases;

- severe hepatic impairment or active liver disease.



- progressive kidney disease, marked renal failure with creatinine clearance less than 30 ml / min, confirmed hyperkalemia.



- Children under 6 years (for effervescent tablets 200 mg),

- Children under 12 years of age (for tablets coated with 400 mg film coating).




During treatment, it is necessary to monitor the picture of peripheral blood and the functional state of the liver and kidneys.

When symptoms of gastropathy appear, careful monitoring including esophagogastroduodenoscopy, a blood test with determination of hemoglobin and hematocrit, and analysis of feces for latent blood are shown.

To prevent the development of NSAIDs, gastropathy is recommended to be combined with preparations of prostaglandins (misoprostol).

If it is necessary to determine 17-ketosteroids, the drug should be discontinued 48 hours before the test.

Patients should refrain from all activities requiring increased attention, rapid mental and motor reaction.
During the period of treatment, ethanol is not recommended.
To reduce the risk of developing adverse events on the part of the digestive tract, a minimum effective dose should be used with the minimum possible short course.


Symptoms: abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, retardation, drowsiness, depression, headache, tinnitus, metabolic acidosis, coma, acute renal failure, lowering of blood pressure, bradycardia, tachycardia, atrial fibrillation, respiratory arrest.

Treatment: gastric lavage (only for 1 hour after intake), activated charcoal, alkaline drink, forced diuresis, symptomatic therapy (correction of acid-base state, blood pressure).


It is not recommended simultaneous administration of ibuprofen with acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) and other NSAIDs.

With simultaneous administration, ibuprofen reduces the anti-inflammatory and antiaggregant effect of ASA (possibly increasing the incidence of acute coronary insufficiency in patients receiving low doses of ASA as an antiplatelet agent after the onset of ibuprofen administration).

When administered with anticoagulant and thrombolytic drugs (alteplase, streptokinase, urokinase), the risk of bleeding increases at the same time.

Simultaneous reception with serotonin reuptake inhibitors (cytatopram, fluoxetine, paroxetine, sertratin) increases the risk of developing serious gastrointestinal bleeding.

Cefamandol, cefaperazone, cefotetan, valproic acid, plikamycin increase the frequency of hypoprothrombinemia.

Cyclosporine and gold preparations increase the effect of ibuprofen on the synthesis of prostaglandins in the kidneys, which is manifested by increased nephrotoxicity.
Ibuprofen increases the plasma concentration of cyclosporine and the likelihood of its hepatotoxic effects. Drugs that block tubular secretion, reduce excretion and increase the plasma concentration of ibuprofen.
Microsomal oxidation inductors (phenytoin, ethanol, barbiturates, rifampicin, phenylbutazone, tricyclic antidepressants) increase the production of hydroxylated active metabolites, increasing the risk of severe hepatotoxic intoxications.

Inhibitors of microsomal oxidation reduce the risk of hepatotoxic action.

Reduces the hypotensive activity of vasodilators (including blockers of slow calcium ropes), ACE inhibitors), natriuretic and diuretic - furosemide and hydrochlorothiazide.

Reduces the effectiveness of uricosuric drugs, increases the effect of indirect anticoagulants, antiplatelet agents, fibrinolytic agents (increased risk of hemorrhagic complications), enhances ulcerogenic effect with bleeding mineralocorticosteroids and glucocorticosteroids, colchicine, estrogens, ethanol.

Strengthens the effect of peroral hypoglycemic drugs (including derivatives of sulfonylureas) and insulin.

Antacids and colestyramine reduce the absorption of ibuprofen.

Increases the concentration in the blood of detoxin, lithium and methotrexate.

Caffeine increases the analgesic effect.

Myelotoxic agents increase the manifestation of hematotoxicity of the drug.


The drug is approved for use as a means of OTC.
