Ibuprofen is one of the most popular pain killers available on the market. It's a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), so it's good for treating the symptoms of arthritis, such as swelling, aches, inflammation and irritation in tissues and joints. If you've got rheumatoid, juvenile or osteoarthritis, remember that drugs containing ibuprofen like Motrin or Advil won't cure your condition--they'll help you manage its symptoms, but only as long as you keep taking them.
