Ibuprofen may cause headache and dizziness. If you feel dizzy, do not drive or take part in any activity in which you need to be alert.

If you develop swelling of the eyes or mouth, rashes or have difficulty breathing, you may be allergic to Ibuprofen. Stop the medicine and see the doctor quickly if this happens.

Alert your doctor if any of the following symptoms are severe or refuse to go away:

- stomach pain
- diarrhoea
- unusual tiredness
- dizziness

Some side effects may be serious and need immediate attention. These are usually more of a concern with long-term use and are usually not a problem with short-term or occasional use. Alert your doctor quickly if you experience any of these side effects:

- problems with your eyesight such as blurred vision
- hearing problems such as a ringing or buzzing sound in the ears
- chest pain
- breathlessness
- black and sticky bowel movements
