Ibuprofen for fracture pain

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Children with fractured arms and their parents were more satisfied with ibuprofen than acetaminophen-codeine combinations for pain management, according to a study in the Annals of Emergency Medicine. Researchers led by Amy Drendel of the Medical College of Wisconsin found fewer children who took 10 mg/kg of ibuprofen needed to take a stronger "rescue medication" (20.3 percent) than those who took 1 mg/kg of acetaminophen with codeine (31 percent). However, researchers note the difference is not statistically significant. They also found children who took ibuprofen functioned better and suffered fewer side effects than those who took acetaminophen with codeine
