Option: 4


Answers (1)


Correct answer: (3) Ibuprofen

Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that is commonly used to reduce fever and relief pain. It works by blocking the production of prostaglandins, which are chemicals that cause inflammation, pain, and fever.

Incorrect options:

1) Aspirin: Aspirin is also an NSAID that can reduce fever and relieve pain, but it is not commonly used for this purpose anymore due to its potential side effects, such as stomach bleeding and Reyes syndrome in children.

2) Insulin: Insulin is a hormone that regulates blood sugar levels and is used to treat diabetes, not fever or pain relief.

4) Diazepam: Diazepam is a benzodiazepine drug that is used to treat anxiety, seizures, and muscle spasms, not fever or pain relief.
