Would it be wise to take a diuretic and Ibuprofen

Diuretics are a set of commonly used drugs that are essentially used in order to assist and accelerate the removal of fluids from the body through the process of urination. Most people will today associate diuretics with being over the counter drugs that are commonly available. However, a diuretic could also be a homeopathic remedy or food source that triggers the same response within the human body. Diuretics are widely used to treat a number of medical conditions. One of its foremost purposes is in the treatment of edema, which is a medical condition characterized by the intense accumulation of fluids in the body's tissues. They are also frequently used in the treatment of high blood pressure or other heart related diseases. Diuretics trigger a response within the human body that increases the production of urine, thereby helping simultaneously get rid of excess salts while also reducing blood volume. Another new age use of diuretics is their effectiveness in being used as a weight loss aid because of the fact that they help the body get rid of any excess fluids that could contribute to overall mass. Some of the natural diuretics that are commonly consumed include cranberries and cranberry juice as well as beverages that contain caffeine and apple cider vinegar.

Ibuprofen is a prescription drug that falls into the category of being a non steroidal anti inflammatory drug (NSAID) that is commonly used in the treatment of conditions such as arthritis, fever and primary dysmenorrhea. The lower doses of the medication are available over the counter in most countries and the duration of action for the lower doses will usually be limited to between 4 to 6 hours.

The invention of a diuretic - ibuprophen combination relates to the pharmaceutical composition that is designed to help in relieving pain, cramps, bloating as well as tension that is commonly experienced during menstruation or pre menstruation in a woman's physiological state. If you are using ibuprophen it is best to consult your doctor about the administration. This is because your doctor would know your medical history as well as how your body would react to the chemical composition. You could also deal with this problem using a number of home remedies that are easy to ingest and come with lesser side - effects. For example, adding 2 teaspoons of dried chamomile flowers to a cup of boiling water and allowing it to steep for about 5 minutes before drinking it is known to be especially effective. You could also add some amount of honey for taste.
