Can I take Nurofen if I have asthma?

If you suffer from asthma, and have ever experienced an allergic reaction such as a rash or swelling of your tongue, throat or lips or difficulty breathing after taking NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), like ibuprofen or aspirin, please do not take Nurofen.

If you have never taken NSAIDs before, please speak to your doctor before using Nurofen. A very small minority of people may suffer worsening of their asthma.


Do not use if you have a stomach ulcer.

Always read the label. Use only as directed. Incorrect use could be harmful.
If symptoms persist see your healthcare professional.
