Questions - Brufen Tablet

Brufen belongs to a group of medications called anti-inflammatory painkillers. The active ingredient in Brufen is Ibuprofen. According to FDA, Ibuprofen has a pregnancy category C rating. It indicates that animal reproduction studies have revealed an adverse effect on the fetus and there are no well-controlled studies in humans, but potential benefits may warrant usage of the drug in pregnant women despite potential risks.

During the first and second trimester of pregnant women, Ibuprofen should not be used unless clearly prescribed. If Ibuprofen is used by a woman trying to conceive, or while the first or second trimester of gestation, the dose should be kept as low and duration of therapy as short as possible. During the third trimester of pregnancy, use of Ibuprofen may expose the fetus to cardiopulmonary toxicity and renal dysfunction, which may proceed to renal failure with oligohydramnios.

Hence, Ibuprofen is contraindicated during the third trimester of pregnancy. Women taking Brufen are advised to notify their gynecologist if they become pregnant or intend to become pregnant during therapy or are breastfeeding an infant.
