Nonsteroidal anti-imflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs, are a class of drugs which provide both analgesic (pain-killing)[1] and antipyretic (fever-reducing) effects, and anti-inflammatory effects[1] in higher doses. They range from mild to strong pain relief.

Commonly used NSAIDs include aspirin,[1] ibuprofen,[1] naproxen,[1] diclofenac, celecoxib,[1] meloxicam, mefenamic acid, and nabumetone.
