Ibuprofen is also over-the-counter in the U.S. (generally 200 mg.) and
available in multiple brands, but only by Rx for higher dosages, e.g. 600 and
800 mg.

I personally prefer ketoprofen; it's stronger, so that the OTC was only
12.5 mg. but apparently no longer available...and I also think that it's more
effective. What I always have on hand is 75 mg. (by Rx only) capsules.
Apparently it is available in the U.K. as "Ketoflam" and "Oruvail."

Ibuprofen is a prescription-only medicine in Germany. I understand that a
trip
to the chemist is de rigueur for many German dancers in St Andrews,
because in
Britain you can get it over the counter.

I actually got some ibuprofen pills on prescription last year for my knee
(which is better now, thank you very much, mostly through waiting and
light
exercise) and they worked very well – I didn't dance while I was taking
them,
though, since I didn't want to risk making the knee worse while I wasn't
feeling any pain. I still have some left in case I need them desperately.
