    Abstract

    In this short communication we wanted to find out what is the analgesic effect of single dose oral Ibuprofen for adults with postoperative pain? Ibuprofen at 200mg and 400mg are effective in producing at least 50% pain relief in patients with moderate to severe postoperative pain (at least 30mm on a VAS). They are safe to use without common adverse effects. The use of Ibuprofen 200mg or 400mg should be considered as standard practice or protocol for pain relief in post-operative settings. Clinicians should consider a range of factors before prescribing or administering Ibuprofen for acute post-operative pain, including but not limited to, the duration of pain relief with Ibuprofen of different doses, Ibuprofen formulation, cost and patient preference.

    Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

    These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

    Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
