Can you tell me why I cant take ibuprofen tablets if I have high blood pressure? I do take tablets for it.
The answer is that ibuprofen (an anti-inflammatory medication) has an effect on your blood pressure similar to salt. We all know that salt has the effect of slightly raising the blood pressure and ibuprofen has a similar effect. If it's important that you take an anti-inflammatory you could ask your pharmacist or GP if you could take it for a short time.
