Ibuprofen should definitely not be taken by anybody who has problems with the kidney to begin with. Ibuprofen can further damage the kidney. For people who have high blood pressure Ibuprofen can cause the blood pressure to go up even more, it also shouldn't be taken by anybody who has any history of stomach ulcers or gastric bleeding because Ibuprofen irritates the stomach and can cause that to become worse and  finally people who have asthma sometimes can develop an allergic reaction to Ibuprofen, not everyone does but that's a possible side effect of the drug.
