What is ibuprofen ?
Ibuprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) - a term used to refer to a group of drugs that have analgesic (they relieve pain), antipyretic and anti-inflammatory (they fight inflammation) properties. Ibuprofen acts on the source of pain by blocking the production of particles called prostaglandins that cause pain and inflammation in body tissue.
Certain specific forms of ibuprofen such as ibuprofen lysinate dissolve faster in water, therefore, they allow rapid absorption of ibuprofen in the body.

What is migraine?

Migraine is a disease that results in severe headaches, occurring in seizures, for 4 to 72 hours and can be repeated several times a month. It can sometimes be preceded by visual and / or sensory signs called aura (impression of luminosity or flicker of the visual field, illusion that a fly seems to cross the visual field ...).

Migraine or headache?

Misuse of language is often referred to as migraine instead of a simple headache (headache). The following questions can help you identify if you are migraineous. You can fill it alone or with the help of your pharmacist.

1. Your headache evolves in crises of a few hours to 3 days (without treatment).

Between crises, you do not suffer from the head. Yes □ No □

2. You have presented at least 5 crises in your life. Yes □ No □

3. Your headache has at least 2 of the following characteristics: Yes □ No □

· located at one side of the head,

· pulsatile,

· increased by effort (climbing a staircase, running, coughing),

· the painful intensity of the crisis goes from strong to very strong.

4. Your headache is accompanied by at least 1 of the following signs: Yes □ No □

· want to vomit or vomit,

· discomfort to light (photophobia) and / or noise (phonophobia).

If you answered YES:

· to the 4 questions: you are surely migraineous

· to 3 questions: you are probably migraineous

· to 1 or 2 questions: you are probably not migraineous

Discuss these results with your doctor so that he / she can confirm the diagnosis and agree with you the most appropriate treatment.

How to deal with crises?

Some elements such as fatigue, stress, food (chocolates, alcohol ...), sensory factors (noise, flashing light, perfumes, etc.) or physiological factors such as menstruation are likely to trigger migraine attacks.

Knowledge of the triggering factors as well as the warning signs that can precede the crisis makes it possible to start a treatment early (ideally within an hour after its start and while it is still of mild intensity). The earlier the treatment, the more effective and often short-lived (early treatment limits migraine recurrence).

Note on a diary or notebook the timing and duration of your seizures, the intensity of the pain, the possible triggers and the medications used for each attack will help your doctor assess your migraine and its treatment.

A failure on a first crisis does not necessarily mean failure on subsequent crises. The efficacy of 400mg ibuprofen should be evaluated on 2 or 3 seizures. To help you, you can answer the following questions and discuss them with your doctor and pharmacist.

Are you relieved 2 hours after taking? Yes □ No □

Do you have side effects (digestive or other)? Yes □ No □

Do you use a single medication intake? Yes □ No □

Can you resume your usual activities 2 hours after taking? Yes □ No □

When to see your doctor? (this part should perhaps be well separated)

If most headaches are of benign origin, it should not be ignored that they may be the symptom of sometimes severe conditions requiring specialized treatments.

You should consult your doctor in the following cases:

· Early headache crisis.

· Beginning of headache after 50 years

· Triggers headaches through physical exertion, sexual intercourse, coughing.

· Installation of a "headache" headache: sudden onset of a headache from one second to the next.

· Appearance of unusual signs accompanying the headache such as:

o Disorders of balance

o Neck stiffness makes neck movements difficult or impossible

o Double vision, blurred vision

o Difficulty speaking,

o Decreased muscle strength, numbness of the arms and legs

o Body temperature> 38 ° C

o Aggravation of headaches.

o Headache that does not have its usual character

o Continuous headache

WARNING (Contents)
Prolonged treatment or overdosage of NSAIDs may result in serious adverse reactions.
Certain situations must lead to continuation of treatment only after a medical opinion:
  • severe heartburn or black and foul-smelling stools that may indicate irritation or bleeding of the digestive tract;
  • rash without obvious cause;
  • asthma attack ;
  • unusual and intense fatigue, or a sharp and significant decrease in the volume of urine in a person suffering from heart failure , dehydration or diuretic treatment.
The use of NSAIDs is not recommended in children with varicella: it may increase the risk of infectious, exceptional but potentially serious complications.
Precautions are necessary in cases of haemorrhagic risk, especially digestive ( Crohn 's disease , ulcerative colitis ).
NSAIDs have an inhibitory effect on ovulation and are likely to decrease fertility in women. This effect is reversible upon discontinuation of treatment.
Some doctors consider that anti-inflammatories can decrease the effectiveness of intrauterine devices (IUDs) and expose them to an unwanted pregnancy risk. This risk is highly controversial.
The sachets contain sugar (sucrose) in significant quantities.
Conductor: This medication may be responsible, in rare cases, for dizziness or disturbances of vision.
This medication may interact with other medicines, including: Inform your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking a diuretic , an ACE inhibitor , an angiotensin II inhibitor , a beta-blocker, or a medicine containing ciclosporin.
Pregnancy :
Adverse effects to the unborn child have been demonstrated when NSAIDs are used during the last 4 months of pregnancy; the risk exists even with a single intake and even if the pregnancy is over term. The use of this medication is contraindicated during this period.
During the first 5 months, the effect of this medication is poorly understood: only your doctor can evaluate the possible risk of its use in your case.

Ibuprofen passes in very low amounts in breast milk: its use at the recommended doses is possible during breastfeeding.

TIPS (summary)
The 400 mg dosage is intended for use when ibuprofen 200 mg is insufficiently effective. It can nevertheless be used from the outset in the treatment of severe pain.

GLOSSARY (summary)

Abbreviation for non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. Family of anti-inflammatory drugs that are not derived from cortisone (steroids), and the best known of which is aspirin.

Skin reaction (itching, pimples, swelling) or general discomfort occurring after contact with a particular substance, use of a medication, or ingestion of food. The main forms of allergy are eczema, urticaria, asthma, angioedema and allergic shock (anaphylactic shock). Food allergy can also result in digestive disorders.

Reduction in the level of hemoglobin in the blood, which usually results in a decrease in the number of red blood cells. Iron is essential for the synthesis of hemoglobin. Iron deficiency during pregnancy, a vegetarian diet, abundant or repeated haemorrhage (menstruation) is a common cause of anemia. Other causes, more rare, are related to vitamin deficiencies of group B.

Affection healed or always in evolution. The antecedent may be personal or family. The background is the history of a person's health.

antiplatelet agents
Medication that prevents the platelets from clumping and therefore the clots from forming. The oldest platelet antiaggregant is aspirin taken in small doses.
Anti-aggregants should not be confused with anticoagulants with a different mechanism of action.

anti coagulants
Medication that prevents blood from coagulating and therefore prevents clots from forming in the blood vessels.
Anticoagulants are used to treat or prevent phlebitis, pulmonary embolism, certain infarcts. They also prevent the formation of clots in the heart during rhythm disorders such as atrial fibrillation or in the case of an artificial heart valve.
There are two main types of anticoagulants:
  • oral anticoagulants, which block the action of vitamin K (antivitamin K, or AVK) and whose effectiveness is controlled by a blood test: INR (formerly TP);
  • injectable anticoagulants derived from heparin, the efficacy of which can be controlled by the blood assay of anti-Xa activity, Howell's Time (TH) or Cephalin Kaolin Time (TCK) depending on the products used. A regular dosage of blood platelets is necessary throughout the life of a heparin derivative.

Medicine that fights against inflammation. It can be either derived from cortisone (steroidal anti-inflammatory), or not derived from cortisone (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory or NSAID).

Disease characterized by difficulty breathing, often resulting in wheezing. Asthma, permanent or occurring by crisis, is due to a narrowing and inflammation of the bronchi.

beta blockers
Family of drugs used primarily in cardiology. They block the action of adrenaline (and other related hormones) on the heart, vessels and bronchi.

inflammation of the intestine, which can cause ulcers and narrowing. It often becomes chronic and can be accompanied by persistent diarrhea and malnutrition.

Medication allowing increased kidney water removal. Most often, this loss of water follows the loss of salts caused by the drug (salidiuretic).
Diuretics are mainly used in the treatment of high blood pressure, while their mechanism of action in this disease is poorly understood. They are also prescribed in acute or chronic heart failure, edema and other rarer ailments.
These drugs cause loss of sodium and potassium (except for some of them called "potassium-sparing"). Their prolonged administration therefore requires regular blood potassium control, to avoid heart problems that may result from hypokalemia (lack of potassium in the blood). Lack of sodium is another possible but less frequent consequence of the prolonged use of diuretics; it is also detected by a blood test.

A part of the intestine into which food from the stomach penetrates.

skin rash
Appearance of pimples or plaques on the skin. These lesions can be due to a food, a drug, and translate an allergy or a toxic effect. Many viruses can also cause pimple eruptions: rubella, roseola and measles are the most common.

Inflammation of the stomach favored by stress, tobacco, alcohol and certain drugs such as aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs.

Loss of blood from an artery or vein. Hemorrhage can be external, but also internal and go unnoticed.

angiotensin II inhibitor
These drugs are sometimes called sartans, for the names of the molecules belonging to this family end with sartan (losartan, candesartan, etc.).
This family of drugs blocks the action of angiotensin II, a substance that increases blood pressure and tires the heart.
Angiotensin II inhibitors are used to treat high blood pressure.

ACE inhibitor
This family of drugs blocks the action of an enzyme, which converts angiotensin I (naturally inactive substance) to angiotensin II. This last substance increases blood pressure and fatigue the heart.
ACE inhibitors are used to treat high blood pressure, heart failure or myocardial infarction.

heart failure
Inability of the heart to fulfill its function as a pump. The main symptoms of heart failure are fatigue and shortness of breath during an effort.

Hepatic insufficiency
Inability of the liver to perform its function, which is essentially the elimination of some waste, but also the synthesis of many biological substances essential to the body: albumin, cholesterol and coagulation factors (vitamin K, etc.).

renal failure
Inability of the kidneys to eliminate waste or medicinal substances. Advanced renal insufficiency does not necessarily result in a decrease in the amount of urine excreted. Only a blood test and creatinine dosage may reveal this disease.

lupus erythematosus
Skin disease causing redness of the central part of the face. There are two main forms: discoid lupus (only cutaneous) and disseminated lupus (associated with lesions of the deep organs).
