Nurofen Caplets X 24 contains the active ingredient ibuprofen, which belongs to a group of medicines called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
It works by blocking the action of a substance in the body called cyclo-oxygenase. Cyclo-oxygenase is involved in the production of various chemicals in the body, some of which are known as prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are produced in response to injury or certain diseases and would otherwise go on to cause pain, swelling and inflammation. Ibuprofen is therefore used to relieve pain and inflammation.
It is also used for fever (pyrexia), inflammation (anti-inflammatory), mild to moderate pain (especially where inflammation is present).
Adults and children over 12 years of age: Initial dose 2 tablets, then 1-2 tablets every 4-6 hours (maximium 6 per 24 hours).
Children 7 - 12 years of age: 1 tablet every 4-6 hours if necessary. Keep to the recommended dose (maximum 4 per 24 hours).
