What is the Cuprofen?

Cuprofen tablets contain ibuprofen as the active ingredient and are good for treating and managing pain. Ibuprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug having pain-killing and anti-inflammatory properties. 

How does Cuprofen work?

Ibuprofen and other NSAIDs block the cyclo-oxygenase enzyme and are called COX inhibitors. This enzyme is involved in the production of prostaglandins which cause pain, inflammation and fever. The blockage of this enzyme will reverse all these processes. 

Is the Cuprofen suitable for me?

The Cuprofen tablets are suitable for both men and women who are 12 years or above and have the following issues;

  • Symptoms of flu, e.g., cold 
  • Headache and migraine
  • Muscular pain
  • Arthritis (joint pain)
  • Nerve pain
  • Toothache
  • Back pain
  • Fibromyalgia which is characterized by fatigue, pain and sleeping difficulties
  • Signs of inflammation, e.g., redness and swelling

For more indications, consult the patent leaflet.

How many Cuprofen tablets can I use daily?

The recommended dose is 3 tablets, each at least 4 hours apart. Don't exceed the daily limit of 3 tablets unless asked by the doctor to do so.

Can I drink alcohol while taking Cuprofen?

Using both together is highly guarded as their combination has been shown to increase the risk of kidney issues causing symptoms, e.g., swelling of hands, feet, ankles, tiredness, etc.

Which is safer? Paracetamol or ibuprofen?

Both are used for similar purposes. However, their safety profiles show that paracetamol is comparatively safer than ibuprofen.

Can I combine paracetamol with Cuprofen?

There is no issue in doing so. Just take care not to exceed the daily dosage of NSAIDs, as both belong to the same group.

Which drugs should I avoid while using Cuprofen?

The following drugs should not be taken with Cuprofen;

  • Naproxen
  • Aspirin
  • Mefenamic acid
  • Diclofenac
  • Steroids
  • Hypertension drugs etc.

Consult the doctor if you are taking any other drug.

Are ibuprofen and Cuprofen same?

Yes. Both are the same. Cuprofen is the brand name for ibuprofen, although brands with the generic name are also available.
