| Unfortunately ketoprofen, which is very effective, is only OTC | (non-prescription) in Europe in Finland, France, Ireland, The Netherlands | and Portugal. Also more effective is Diclofenac which is OTC in Germany, | Italy, Netherlands, Spain and Sweden, but in both cases you have to take | at least twice the recommended non-prescription dose. And naproxen, more | effective than ibuprofen in equivalent doses, which is OTC in all EU | countries except Denmark and Finland. There is no scientific reason for | the differences in availability. It just depends on local prejudices. | | Jerry | London & Paris
