Ingredients of Nurofen Plus

Nurofen Plus is a combination of two active ingredients, Ibuprofen and Codeine Phosphate. Ibuprofen serves as an anti-inflammatory drug, while Codeine Phosphate is an opioid for pain relief. This blend is meticulously formulated to manage various pains including rheumatic, muscular, migraines, period cramps, dental, backache, fever and symptoms of cold and flu. For additional information on the ingredients, visit Nurofen’s official website.


Understanding Nurofen Plus and Codeine

Nurofen does contain Codeine, which acts by blocking pain signals from traveling along nerves to the brain. Codeine, though effective, can be addictive and should be used responsibly. It is unsuitable for children below 12 years old and certain individuals, hence always check with your doctor first.


Dosage Guidelines for Nurofen Plus

To use Nurofen Plus safely, always follow the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration necessary. Typically, adults should take one or two tablets with water, up to three times a day, with a minimum of four hours between doses. Ensure not to exceed six tablets in 24 hours, and the duration of use should not exceed three days unless specified by your doctor.

For a detailed understanding of ‘How many Nurofen Plus tablets you can take in a day?’ refer to the patient information leaflet or consult your doctor or pharmacist.
