I have Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and use a CPAP* machine and face mask to maintain my breathing during sleep. A few days ago I had problems with my mask causing excessive pressure on my top lip. During the day I had taken Ibuprofen for a headache so I checked the ingredients. Do Not Take if you are allergic to asprin was printed on the back of the box. Needless to say, I hadn’t read the instructions before taking just one of the capsules. The reaction was not as bad as taking an asprin but it was enough to make my lip swell and make my night’s sleep less restfull.
