Ibuleve Maximum Strength Gel is an over-the-counter topical medicated gel that can be applied to relieve pain. Ibuleve Maximum Strength Gel contains ibuprofen, a topical non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug that will reduce inflammation and the associated pain. Ibuleve Maximum Strength Gel reduces inflammation in your body by blocking cyclooxygenase, which in turn stops the production of inflammation-causing chemicals called prostaglandins.
Ibuleve Maximum Strength Gel treats a wide variety of pain, including muscle pain, backaches, strains, sprains, arthritis and neuralgia. Although the conditions that can be treated with this gel differ from each other, they all cause inflammation, which is why you are experiencing pain.
Ibuleve Maximum Strength Gel may cause side effects, such as a mild skin rash, itchiness or irritation. If you encounter serious side effects, including heartburn, indigestion, stomach pain, abdomen swelling, decreased urination, and weight loss, loss of appetite, or an allergic reaction, these serious side effects should be brought to a doctor’s attention right away.
