Ibuleve Maximum Strength Gel 10% is an anti-inflammatory painkiller for the treatment of a backache, rheumatic or muscular pain, sprains, strains, and neuralgia. It can also be used for pain relief in common arthritic conditions.
Ibuleve Maximum Strength Gel 10% is a clear, fragrance-free gel, that contains ibuprofen, which is a proven anti-inflammatory painkiller. It is designed to quickly absorb the ibuprofen into the skin at the point of the pain to provide fast and effective relief. It can be used for backaches, rheumatic and muscular pains, sprains and strains, and common arthritic conditions.
Directions for applying Ibuleve Maximum Strength Gel:
For external use only.
Unscrew the cap, turn it upside-down and use the sharp point inside the cap to pierce the tube membrane.
Lightly apply 2 to 5 cm of gel (50 to 125 mg ibuprofen) over the affected area. Massage gently until absorbed. Wash hands after use, unless treating them.
Repeat as required, up to three times daily, or as instructed by your doctor.
