Nurofen Chewable

Nurofen Chewable contains the active ingredient called ibuprofen which is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory painkiller.

Nurofen Chewable 100mg capsules are used in children from 7 to 12 years for the relief of mild to moderate pain such as sore throat, dental pain, ear ache, headache, minor aches and sprains, and symptoms of cold and flu. Nurofen Chewable also brings down a high temperature (fever).

If symptoms do not improve within a 3 day period, speak to your doctor.

Nurofen Chewable Tablets

Nurofen Chewable Tablets ingredient, 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). Nurofen Chewable Tablets 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 Nurofen Chewable Tablets, your stomach can produce ulcers and promote bleeding.

Nurofen Chewable Capsules

Nurofen Chewable Capsules should not be given to a child if they are or have:

  • Allergic to ibuprofen or any of the other ingredients listed on the patient information leaflet.
  • Ever had a reaction after taking ibuprofen, aspirin or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines.

  • Or have had two or more episodes of a stomach ulcer, perforation or bleeding.
