General Information on Nurofen
Nurofen is a brand name for ibuprofen and is available primarily in Australia, the United Kingdom, Europe, and New Zealand. There are almost 11 Nurofen variants that have analgesic ibuprofen as its primary ingredient. In some forms it contains non-sedating decongestant pseudoephedrine and is used for treatment of menstrual pain, headache, fever, pain or inflammation in certain parts of the body including tooth, back, and even for arthritis and migraine pain. Depending on the strength and other ingredients in combination with ibuprofen, you can buy Nurofen if it has been prescribed or as an over the counter drug.
Side effects of Nurofen
Nurofen side effects are generally minor to moderate in nature. Very rare cases of severe side effects have been reported on administration of Nurofen. Some of the most common and sometimes persistent side effects of Nurofen include headache, vomiting, nausea, anxiety, diarrhea, constipation, drowsiness, dizziness, stomach pain, tiredness, swelling or inflammation, and weakness. You should consult a doctor if you see severe symptoms of Nurofen like severe allergic reactions. The symptoms of allergic reactions and other serious side effects include hives, swelling of the mouth and lips, swelling of the face, eye problems followed by blurred vision, stiff neck, swelling in the legs, blistered skin, swelling in the arms, decrease or increase in the frequency of urination, flu like symptoms, dark urine, irregular heartbeat, sudden weight gain, and yellowing of the skin.
There are certain precautions that you need to take before or after you buy Nurofen. There are certain other precautions that are necessary like it is advised not to take Nurofen if you have had a heart surgery recently as it can lead to life threatening heart conditions. If you are already suffering from stomach problems and diarrhea then administration of Nurofen is not recommended. You should consult your doctor if you have had specific medical conditions in the recent past or are suffering from them. Some of the medical conditions that can get aggravated or worsen due to administration of Nurofen include blood clots, polyps in your nose, asthma, congestive heart failure, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), high blood pressure, and stomach ulcers. You need to take precautionary measure if you have become, in the past 3 months, pregnant, as intake of Nurofen can harm your unborn baby. Consult your doctor prior to breastfeeding.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
