Your medicine is for effective relief from: rheumatic and muscular pain, backache, headache, dental pain, migraine,

neuralgia, period pain, feverishness and the symptoms of colds and flu.



For oral administration and short term use only.

Dosage: Adults, the elderly and young persons over 12 years: The minimum effective dose should be used for the shortest time necessary to relieve symptoms. 1 or 2 capsules every 4-6 hours, as required. The capsules should be taken with water. Take only as much as you need and leave at least 4 hours between each dose. Do not take more than 6 capsules in any 24 hour period.

ticlopidine), some medicines that reduce high blood pressure (ACE-inhibitors such as captopril, beta-blockers such as atenolol, or angiotensin-II receptor antagonists such as losartan), and other medicines, as these may affect or be

affected by treatment with ibuprofen

• taking other medicines such as corticosteroids, anti platelet agents, cardiac glycosides, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, lithium, methotrexate, ciclosporin, mifepristone, tacrolimus, zidovudine, or quinolone antibiotics.
