I would stay away from any NSAID if you have UC. Isn't there another option? I fell about four years ago and fractured my lumbar spine. This happened at a campground in the middle of the night.....long story....but the guard at the gate gave my husband Ibupropen for me to take until the morning. I should have gone straight to the ER but didn't realize my back was fractured. We had our two grandkids with us too. Well, shortly thereafter I suffered a very bad UC flare. When I went to the GI doctor he said that the NSAID probably caused the flare or contributed to it.
