Patients can use ibuprofen to alleviate the discomfort caused by rheumatism.
◆ who should not use ibuprofen?
1,Pregnant women and lactating women
Pregnant women and lactating women should not use ibuprofen, because the fetus is in the third week to the end of the third month, when the embryonic organs have just differentiated and formed, and the fetus is in a highly sensitive period. If pregnant women take ibuprofen, it will have a great impact on the fetus. If breast-feeding women use ibuprofen, it is also bad for infants, because ibuprofen can be given to infants from milk. Therefore, pregnant women and lactating women are not suitable to take ibuprofen.
2,Patients with allergic rhinitis, nasal polyps and asthma
Ibuprofen is not suitable for patients with allergic rhinitis, nasal polyps and asthma, because ibuprofen may induce bronchospasm, which will aggravate the patient’s condition.

Patients with renal insufficiency should not use ibuprofen, because ibuprofen is an antipyretic and analgesic drug, which can only be used as antipyretic and analgesic drugs for short-term use. If they take ibuprofen in large quantities for a long time, their renal function will be damaged. Therefore, patients with renal insufficiency should not take ibuprofen.
