Flurbiprofen is a member of the phenylalkanoic acid derivative family of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) used to treat the inflammation and pain of arthritis. It is also known by the trade name ANSAID and marketed by Pfizer.
Additional recommended knowledge
Flurbiprofen is also used as an active ingredient in some kinds of throat lozenges.
Flurbiprofen was mocked by television satirist Stephen Colbert (for its unlikely name) during an interview with Terry Gross aired on October 9, 2007 on National Public Radio's program "Fresh Air." Colbert had been taking the drug after breaking his wrist earlier that year.
