Ibuprofen belongs to a group of medicines called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory painkillers (NSAIDs).
The ibuprofen in Calprofen is used as an analgesic for relief of mild to moderate pain due to sore throat, teething pain, toothache, headache, minor aches and pains, symptoms of cold and flu. Calprofen also brings down a high temperature including post-immunisation fever.
This Calprofen product is intended for use in children aged 2 months to 12 years.
Calprofen Sachets should not be given to a child if:
- They have ever had a bad reaction after taking Ibuprofen, any of the ingredients listed in the patient information leaflet, aspirin or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory painkiller.
- He/she weighs less than 5 kg.
- They are taking any other anti-inflammatory painkillers or aspirin with a daily dose above 75 mg.
- She/he has a stomach ulcer, perforation or bleeding.
- They have severe kidney, heart or liver failure.
- Before or after heart surgery.
If any of the above apply, get advice from a doctor or pharmacist without using Calprofen Sachets.
Calprofen Ibuprofen belongs to a group of medicines called NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs).
To help with inflammation and healing, the body release chemicals known as Prostaglandins. When these chemicals are released, as well as the benefits, they also cause some negative side effects such as pain and fever.
These Prostaglandins are produced by an enzyme called cyclooxygenase (COX). Calprofen Ibuprofen and other NSAIDs work to reduce the amount of COX-1 and COX-2 that are produced and as a consequence any ongoing inflammation, pain or fever is reduced.
Whilst the COX-2 enzyme is the one that creates prostaglandins that cause pain and fever, the COX-1 enzyme helps protect the stomach lining from any damaging effects of acid. This is why when sometimes taking NSAIDs or Calprofen Ibuprofen, your stomach can produce ulcers and promote bleeding.
Calprofen Ibuprofen Suspension
Calprofen Ibuprofen Suspension may hide the signs of infections such as fever and pain. It is therefore possible that this medicine may delay appropriate treatment of infection, which may lead to an increased risk of complications. This has been observed in pneumonia caused by bacteria and bacterial skin infection related to chickenpox.
If your child takes Calprofen Ibuprofen Suspension while they have an infection and their symptoms of the infection persist or worsen, consult a doctor without delay. If you’re not sure about any of the medicines your child is taking, show the bottle or pack to your pharmacist. If any of these points apply, talk to a doctor or pharmacist.
Calprofen And Calpol
You shouldn’t give your child Calprofen and Calpol at the same time because they each contain Ibuprofen and Paracetamol, unless advised to by a healthcare professional. Calprofen and Calpol shouldn’t constantly be switched either, unless also advised by a healthcare professional.
If both Calprofen and Calpol have been tried at separate times and your child doesn’t seem to be responding to either, call a GP or NHS 111.
