What is in the medicine?

This product contains ibuprofen which belongs to a group of medicines called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (also known as NSAIDs). Like other NSAIDs, ibuprofen works by changing the body’s chemical response to pain, swelling, and fever resulting in relief of symptoms of inflammation (e.g., swelling, redness) and relief of pain and/or fever.

How much and how often should you use this medicine?

Like other NSAIDs, the lowest effective dose of ibuprofen should be used for the shortest possible time.

These medicines are given orally.
