Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), which relieves pain and swelling (inflammation). It is used to treat headaches, muscle aches, backaches, dental pain, menstrual cramps, arthritis, or athletic injuries. A-G Profen is also used to reduce fever and to relieve minor aches and pain due to the common cold or flu. A-G Profen works by blocking the enzyme in your body that makes prostaglandins.
