Q: Can taking Ibuprofen alone (not mixing it with BP meds) also be bad for blood pressure?
A: Ibuprofen is in a class of drugs known as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory. This type of drug can elevate blood pressure. Used intermittently for the occasional headache or muscle aches and pain, blood pressure elevation is not usually a problem. Daily use of Ibuprofen could cause problems.
