Question and answer
You sprained your ankle and are told to take ibuprofen to reduce the inflammation. What is the mechanism of action for this drug?
Aspirin is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAIDs), but differs from most other NSAIDS in the mechanism of action. [ Though it, and others in its group called the salicylates, have similar effects (antipyretic, anti-inflammatory, analgesic) to the other NSAIDs and inhibit the same enzyme cyclooxygenase, aspirin (but not the other salicylates) does so in an irreversible manner. Ibuprofen
is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug that blocks the formation of inflammatory agents made by cyclo-oxygenase from arachidonic acid. Ambroxol is secretolytic agent used to treat respiratory diseases associated with thick or excessive mucus. ]
