This treatment is colourless, sugarless and comes in a tasty strawberry flavour, so your child can easily accept it.

Caution before giving Ibuprofen 100mg Suspension for Children:

Do not give to babies or children who:

  • Have had stomach ulcers or other serious stomach disorders
  • Suffer a worsening of asthma, runny noses or hives due to aspirin or other similar medicines

Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before giving Ibuprofen suspension to your child if they/you:

  • Have asthma or have suffered from asthma
  • Have kidney, heart or liver problems
  • Is allergic to aspirin
  • Has inherited problems coping with fructose/fruit sugar (hereditary fructose intolerance). This is because the body can make some fructose from the ingredient maltitol
  • Still has, after immunisation, a high temperature which you think might require a third dose of the medicine


Also talk to your doctor before use if your child is taking any other medicines or treatment, particularly:

  • Other pain relievers or other NSAIDs such as ibuprofen or aspirin
  • Medicines for high blood pressure and water tablets (diuretics)
  • Medicines for thinning the blood (anti-coagulants)
  • Corticosteroids
  • Methotrexate
  • Lithium (used to treat depression)


What to do if you give too much?

Problems in overdose are rare, but if you accidentally give more than the recommended dose contact your doctor straight away.

Although side effects are uncommon, your child may get one of the known side effects of NSAIDs. If they do or if you have any concerns, stop giving this medicine to your child talk to your doctor as soon as possible.

  • The most common side effects are a mild laxative effect, stomach discomfort
  • Rare side effects are nausea, stomach pain, rash, itching, or worsening of asthma, unexplained wheezing or shortness of breath
