I'm confused, Kissa. How does the ibuprofin work to lower fever when you are above normal? Are you saying that it only reduces when your body knows it's above normal, similar to how the pain reliever knows to go to the area of pain due to the 'pain signals' going off?
I believe it means either lower temperature and body aches do to cold or flu, meaning if you have a temp it will lower it, if you have a headach or body ache do to colds etc it will relief it. I think it will relief whatever you are taking it for. But that is really a good pndering question, maybe a pharmacist would be able to asnwer it for all of us!!
