Nurofen provides fast, targeted relief, meaning that it can help with pain management no matter where you’re suffering. Its active ingredient is a drug called ibuprofen, which belongs to a class of drugs known as NSAIDS, or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. These drugs help the body decrease pain, reduce fever and lessen inflammation of the muscles.
Nurofen works by inhibiting a substance known as COX-2, which is responsible for pain, swelling and inflammation. Put simply, it blocks the production of this pain-causing enzyme wherever the pain in your body is, bringing fast, effective relief where you need it.
