The World Health Organisation has warned against the usage of popular drug Ibuprofen without consulting a doctor.
WHO spokesman, Christian Lindmeier, issued the warning at a news conference in Geneva on Tuesday.
Lindmeier said the agency has no recent studies that link the anti-inflammatory drug with increased mortality rates.
He said that WHO recommends paracetamol, not Ibuprofen in self-medication.
