Key facts about Nurofen and asthma:
Nurofen contains ibuprofen, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) that helps to temporarily reduce pain and inflammation.
Unless a doctor has told you to, do not use Nurofen if you have asthma.
If you experience an allergic reaction after taking Nurofen or other anti-inflammatory medicine, stop taking it and see your doctor immediately.
Are there other pain relief options if I have asthma?
If you have asthma, discuss your pain relief options with your doctor. Your doctor may suggest other options for pain relief that are less likely to affect your asthma.
