Thanks for your query.

NSAIDs are considered to be used with precaution in Cerebral or any system bleeds or ischemic attacks.

Yes, Ibuprofen is safe compared to other NSAIDs like Aspirin.

The action of Ibuprofen on platelets is less when compared to aspirin, hence there is no risk of re-bleed with Ibuprofen.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
