Ibuprofen side effects stop some gout patients using this very popular anti-inflammatory drug.
Most side effects relate to stomach problems.
Now, gel or cream formulations overcome some of these ibuprofen side effects.
Ibuprofen (sometimes called ibuprofin or ibuprophen*) is in the NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs) category.
These act upon the hormones that cause swelling and pain.
You take ibuprofen tablets or liquid orally. Or rub gel or cream into the skin.
I first took ibuprofen for gout before I knew I had it.
I had tablets prescribed in hospital when I was waiting to be tested and diagnosed.
Nurses warned me that it might upset my stomach, but I was fine.
You might need to take tablets or liquid with milk or food to reduce the chance of stomach upset.
Now that gel is available, you can reduce the risk of stomach related ibuprofen side effects. You apply the gel around the area of swelling and gently massage it into the skin. Note that you absorb ibuprofen into the bloodstream, so skin application does not reduce the risk of other ibuprofen side effects (allergy or kidney problems). The good news is you can usually gain relief with a smaller dosage when it is applied to the affected area.

Ibuprofen and indomethacin are common alternative NSAIDs, both of which are common gout pain treatments.
