NSAIDS to my knowledge have no effect on neurotransmitter levels.

Ibuprofen (And probably orher NSAIDs but that was the research was using) effects the receptors preventing neurotransmitters attaching to them. It doesn’t effect the levels but it does effect their ability to function (ie pass on pain message).
