Ibuprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory. It's mainly for pain relief, and is put in most over the counter branded medications for headaches, period pains, dental pain and general pain relief (Bufferin, Advil, Eve, Pabron). It's not restricted by Wada and was in the four-drug cocktail vial dropped by a pro rider earlier this year. Will help if your muscles hurt, for road rash after a fall, and other general stuff. Not advisable to use it to mask pain from an injury and then ride, but I usually carry some with me just in case. It's not kind on the stomach either.

Perhaps use it when some of the permanent residents in the local palliative care home are testing your solemnity, causing headaches that prayers cannot dispel. Or use it for the pains in the place that shall not be considered after a holy nighttime visitation from Cardinal Franz.
