Does ibuprofen reduce fever?

Answers (1)

Official Answer by Drugs.com 8 Mar 2016

Yes, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, generics) does reduce fever. Ibuprofen is classified as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) and can be bought over-the-counter (OTC) without a prescription in the 200 mg strength. It can be used in adults and children 6 months of age and older. Follow the directions on the OTC Drug Facts Label to determine your dose, or your child's dose, of ibuprofen for fever.
