Is Ibuleve suitable for vegans/vegetarians?
Yes. Ibuleve does not contain any products of animal origin and it has not been tested on animals.
Can Ibuleve Pain Relief Spray be used long-term?
The Ibuleve products you can buy in the healthcare aisle are available to the patient by direct self-selection and should therefore only be used for up to 2 weeks, unless the diagnosis is discussed with the patient’s doctor.
Can Ibuleve be used at the same time as oral painkillers?
In the case of oral painkillers containing aspirin or other NSAIDs* (e.g. ibuprofen, naproxen, diclofenac, piroxicam, celecoxib, and others), taking these while using Ibuleve may increase the risk of side effects occurring.
How much Ibuleve can be used when taking Ibuprofen orally at the same time?
If you would like to take ibuprofen both orally and topically at the same time, consult your pharmacist or GP.
Are there any age limits for using Ibuleve?
Ibuleve is licensed for use by adults and children over 12 years of age. It should not be used by children under 12 years except on the advice of a doctor.

SPRAINS, STRAINS AND MUSCLE PAIN
The causes of sprains and strains
Sprains and strains are injuries to the soft tissues around joints. ‘Strains’ normally refers to damage to muscles while we tend to use ‘sprains’ to describe injuries to ligaments, the bands of flexible connective tissue that connect bones to one another and hold our joints in place.
This damage is often the result of excessive or unusual force being applied to a joint or the muscles around it. As a result, a lot of sprains and strains happen during sporting activities when we subject our joints and muscles to extra stress.
However, even a small slip or sudden unexpected movement can lead to injury, swelling and pain.
The causes of back pain
It’s not surprising that so many people suffer with back pain, either occasionally or chronically. The back has no fewer than 149 joints, each with its own cluster of tendons, ligaments and muscles. Yet we often subject this complex structure to heavy loads and stresses.
Poor posture, careless lifting and many everyday tasks from weeding the garden to carrying heavy shopping can cause painful strains and sprains. Sometimes you simply may not know why back pain has appeared.
In most cases the cause is ‘mechanical’ (that is, not caused by disease), which means the pain will usually get better over time.
RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS PAIN
The causes of rheumatoid arthritis
Unlike osteoarthritis, which is a result of wear and tear on the joints, rheumatoid arthritis is a disease that leads to swelling within the joint. Since there is presently no cure for rheumatoid arthritis, managing pain is an important part of living with the condition.
The causes of Osteoarthritis pain
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis in the UK. It’s a long-term condition that cannot be cured. It usually develops gradually and some people experience pain that becomes steadily worse. This is common in large joints like hips, shoulders and knees, although all joints can be susceptible. Many people suffer from osteoarthritis in the joints of their hands.
In osteoarthritis, the cartilage that protects bones where they meet in joints becomes weaker. As it thins the bone underneath thickens, leading to inflammation in the tissue of the joint lining, causing pain.
Do not spray near flames, burning cigarettes, electric heaters or similar ignition sources.
Suitable for adults, the elderly and children over 12 years old.
Use the spray up to three to four times a day, leaving at least four hours between applications.
- At each application apply 5 to 10 sprays (1 to 2 ml), depending on the extent and severity of your condition. Do not apply more than 40 sprays (8 ml) in any 24 hour period.
- Holding the bottle upright or upside-down, approximately 4 to 6 inches away from the skin, spray over the affected area.
- Every 2 to 3 sprays, gently massage the spray into the skin over and around the painful area.
- Wash hands after use, unless treating them.
- Carry on using the spray in this way for up to two weeks (or longer if recommended by your doctor), until your condition gets better.
If your symptoms worsen or continue for more than two weeks, discuss this with your pharmacist or doctor before continuing treatment.
