Byrofen (Ibuprofen) is a non steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), which exerts an inhibitory effect on                  prostaglandins synthesis by inhibiting the activity of cyclo-oxygenase. Ibuprofen is absorbed from the gastro-intestinal tract and its peak plasma concentrations occur within 1 - 2 hours. Ibuprofen is rapidly excreted in the urine mainly as metabolites and their conjugates. Ibuprofen is well tolerated and is therefore suitable for long term therapy.

- Treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis and soft tissue injuries such as sprain and strain.
