Mechanism Of Action The exact mechanism of action of ibuprofen is unknown. However, ibuprofen is considered an NSAID and thus it is a non-selective inhibitor of cyclooxygenase, which is an enzyme involved in prostaglandin (mediators of pain and fever) and thromboxane (stimulators of blood clotting) synthesis via the arachidonic acid pathway.
Description of the Drug: Ibuprofen is an NSAID and non-selective COX inhibitor used to treat mild-moderate pain, fever, and inflammation.
