Thanks for the query.

All most all the NSAID's (non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs) can cause nausea, gastritis, jaundice etc but only if used in excessive dose and that too for a long time.

Since analgesics are required for a very limited period, in your mother case, you may consider giving her Ibuprofen whenever she is suffering from severe pain. Please get the exact dosage of it, prescribed by her primary treating doctor.

A limited use of Ibuprofen should not cause any problem to your mother.

I hope it helps however; you may revert to me for any further query.

Best of luck
