Treats wide range of pain areas
Gentle on the stomach
Several years ago, I found that paracetamol (panadol) wasn't working very well for me, so I tried Nurofen instead. It seems to work much better for headaches, tooth aches, period pain, inflammation, etc. If you have really strong pain, Nurofen Plus is probably the better option as it has added codeine. But for regular pain, Nurofen works quickly and does the job. I have always used the caplets, and they are small and easy to swallow without a nasty aftertaste. They are suitable for breastfeeding mothers and those with asthma. I have never had an upset stomach from taking Nurofen, or any other side effects.
Easy to swallow, works fairly fast, effective on pain
I once had my feet swell up after spending hours in water and detergent the day before. The Dr told me to take Nurofen and it worked. Luckily as I was in a wedding the next day and could not fit into the bridesmaid shoes! I know it was the Nurofen as they swelled up again and I repeated the Nurofen and they settled back down (Dr was stumped as it why they were sore and swolled). I also use it if I have a sore throat or when I have had tonsilitis as I find it helps to settle the swelling.
I tend to use Nurofen if I am dealing with inflammation. I find it very effective.
Not enough if you have really strong pain.
I like that you can buy Nurofen pain relief tablets in a variety of forms as the liquid capsules I have found to be a far easier form to take. I always have trouble trying to swallow the tablets. You can buy the tablets in bulk packets which makes them much more affordable. Good with pains such as headaches.
Readily available form of pain relief. You can always find Nurofen at supermarkets or chemists. Does a good job with a variety of different forms of pain.
These tablets can be expensive but you will often find them on special at chemists from time to time.

There was once that I went for a seminar on pain relief, and we were given a pack of Nurofen to sample. It so happened that I had quite a bad headache sometime after the seminar, which gave me a chance to try it. The headache went away in about 3 hours, which was pretty quick in my opinion. Be mindful to always take it with food because it can irritate the tummy. The pharmacist normally recommends a maximum of 6 tablets a day, and I tend to stick to that, although I know that one can actually take up to 12 tablets daily. Use Nurofen in moderati...on. Nurofen is the original brand, so if you are happy to go for generics which are cheaper, you could consider other brands available. Awesome relief from headaches, inflammatory pain conditions such as muscular/back pain and period pain, easy to swallow Can cause stomach upset especially if taken on an empty stomach, silghtly more expensive than other generics of ibuprofen
Ibuprofen is great stuff. I find it particularly effective for stress headaches and migraines. I get worried when people seem to take nurofen daily - it's not good to be reliant on any drug, and ibuprofen (as I've said) has side effects. Don't forget that there are other (cheaper) brands!
Fast an effective for most headaches, and muscular pain. Sweet coating makes the normal tablets easy to swallow. They are available just about everywhere
More expensive than other ibuprofen tablets, yet others are just as effective. People seem to be afraid of anything that is not Nurofen. Be careful not to take these too regularly or on an empty stomach as you can get stomach ulcers and other problems.
