Next:

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)

Class Summary

NSAIDs have analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antipyretic activities. Their mechanism of action is not known, but they may inhibit cyclo-oxygenase activity and prostaglandin synthesis. Other mechanisms may exist as well, such as inhibition of leukotriene synthesis, lysosomal enzyme release, lipoxygenase activity, neutrophil aggregation, and various cell membrane functions.

Ibuprofen (Motrin, Ibuprin)

DOC for patients with mild to moderate pain. Ibuprofen inhibits inflammatory reactions and pain by decreasing prostaglandin synthesis.

Naproxen (Naprosyn, Anaprox, Aleve, Naprelan)

Used for the relief of mild to moderate pain. Inhibits inflammatory reactions and pain by decreasing the activity of cyclo-oxygenase, which results in decreased prostaglandin synthesis.

Ketoprofen (Actron, Orudis, Oruvail)

Used for the relief of mild to moderate pain and inflammation. Small dosages are initially indicated in small and elderly patients and in persons with renal or liver disease. Doses >75 mg do not increase the therapeutic effects. Administer high doses with caution and closely observe the patient for his/her response.
