I just wanted to have a global view about people experiencing IBD symptoms that might be linked to ibuprofen side effects. I am asking this because I used to take ibuprofen in the past and right before my very first burst, basically mucus with stool and headaches.
Ibuprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID)
NSAIDs can cause damage to the gastroduodenal mucosa via several mechanisms, including the topical irritant effect of these drugs on the epithelium, impairment of the barrier properties of the mucosa, suppression of gastric prostaglandin synthesis, reduction of gastric mucosal blood flow and interference with the repair of superficial injury.
Thanks for your feedbacks.
