Quick reminder that administration of NSAIDs (including Ibuprofen and ASA) to patients with a history of asthma requires a previous history of NSAID use without complication. A subset of asthmatic patients mount NSAID-induced bronchoconstriction, that can be life-threatening. Therefore, remember to ask your patients about prior use (and document this use in your ACR) when considering administration of these medications.
