On this episode of the Real Life Pharmacology Podcast, I discuss ibuprofen pharmacology.
Ibuprofen can raise the concentrations of lithium and increase the risk for toxicity.
Compared to most other NSAIDs, ibuprofen has a relatively short half-life. This explains why it needs to be dosed more frequently than other agents.
Ibuprofen can contribute to renal insufficiency, GI bleed risk, and CHF exacerbations.
I discuss important drug interactions on the podcast, be sure to check out my latest project which is a 200+ page book on managing drug interactions in primary care.
