Ibuprofen molecule

Ibuprofen — a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID)

The principal mechanism of action of ibuprofen and other NSAIDs is inhibition of prostaglandin biosynthesis.1

Prostaglandins are naturally occurring fatty acid derivatives that are widely distributed in the tissues. They are believed to be a common factor in the production of pain, fever, and inflammation.1

NSAIDs decrease prostaglandin biosynthesis by inhibiting cyclooxygenase.1
