Yes, you read it right. Pain is a dreadful and the most annoying thing that a human can experience. Let’s think about it, the headache that we experience after hours of spending time in front of a computer for work, having an annoying neighbor who does not forget to make loud noises every day, our favorite ice cream giving us toothache, and sure there are a lot more things that cause pain in our body.
Now with growing technology, everything has some solution, and here comes ‘THE MIRACLE’ that has been saving many people from pain. Breaking the suspense this post is all about the famous painkilling drug “IBUPROFEN“.
It is always good to know about the medicine that we take in and do not forget taken medicine without a professional prescription is a very bad practice.
So getting into the topic the pain killer IBUPROFEN is a Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug (NSAID). It can be used to treat inflammation, pain, arthritis, and god bless it can also be used to treat toothache one of the most annoying pain a person can experience.
HOW DOES IT WORK:
The prime duty of the medicine is to inhibit the production of ‘prostaglandins‘(the main culprit for our pain) which is being produced by the arachidonicacid (the source culprit) and cyclooxygenase (COX) (the silent villain).
Also, ibuprofen acts on the hypothalamus (one that maintains our inner body stable) in our brain causing vasodilation(widening the blood vessels). So by vasodilation, the blood vessels are brought closer to the surface of the skin thereby cooling down your blood and thus reducing fever.
Cox sometimes produces an enzyme called THROMBOXANE which makes the platelets in our blood vessel sticky. So, they come together and guess what they are capable of forming a blood clot. So here our miracle medicine does its job, ibuprofen by inhibiting cox reduces the risk of ‘blood clot’. Thus ultimately saving us from all your nightmares.
OUR ROLE TO WORK IT OUR:
Always remember to drink a lot of water and flush out the toxins from your body.
All medicine has one or two side effects. Our body is unique in its own way so don’t forget to think about the side effects. One such side-effect of ibuprofen is that it may cause damage to your gut lining thus injuring any fetus that may be present.
I would suggest people going in for natural methods for pain reduction, but what one goes through cannot be imagined or explained by others. So go for all the options possible and pick the one that suits you the best.
