The generic name of the drug is the drug. In the states, they cannot sell a med with an undeclared second med, They have to tell you about all the active ingredients in it.Ibuprofen is an antiinflammatory, and wouldn't have an antibiotic in it.
ibuprofen reduces fevers. That might be why you're asking this question. While reducing the fever or aches, ibuprofen doesn't kill any bacteria.
Antibiotics work by killing bacteria like strep throat, ear infections, and so forth, which does cause a fever to stop after the infection is dead. Always take all of your antibiotic. Many people begin to feel good after taking a few pills, and stop taking the antibiotic. The bacteria is not dead and comes back worse and is harder to kill.
I hope that this helps and good luck.
Just be careful,on this medication as too much ibuprofen can cause ulcers or other GI bleeding. Take as prescribed and do not mix with aspirin, Advere or another NSAID.
Use for a short time. If the ailment or pain does not go away or increases, please see a doctor.
