Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Ten patients with acute gouty arthritis were treated with daily doses of 2,400 mg of ibuprofen. All patients had rapid improvement and complete resolution within 72 hours; no adverse reactions were reported. Ibuprofen therapy may be an effective alternative in the treatment of acute gouty arthritis.
