Benefits of Motrin
If you have mild to moderate pain, you may benefit from Motrin® (ibuprofen). Specifically, this medication is most often used for:
- Reducing pain related to bone, muscle, or tendon injury or inflammation
- Reducing fever
- Alleviating pain and joint swelling associated with different forms of arthritis and other conditions.
As a type of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), Motrin works to relieve pain and inflammation by blocking the effects of certain hormones in the body (prostaglandins).
Motrin may be used alone or combined with other medications in several common cold, flu, and sinus products. These can be used to help relieve common cold symptoms, flu symptoms, or sinus problems, such as fever, aches, and pains.
