What are Cuprofen Maximum Strength Tablets?

Cuprofen Maximum Strength Tablets are a powerful, fast-working solution for pain relief. Cuprofen uses the active ingredient ibuprofen. Ibuprofen is part of a group of medicines called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents. These are effective at reducing pain, fever, and inflammation.


How does ibuprofen help with pain relief?

Ibuprofen is classed as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug or NSAID for short. Other NSAIDs include aspirin and naproxen. Ibuprofen relieves pain by blocking what is known as prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are what the body releases after illness and injury and the cause of pain, swelling, or inflammation. The painkilling effects of iburprofen are almost immediate, but the anti-inflammatory effects can take up to several weeks to work. 


When can they be used?

Cuprofen is recommended to be used for a number of different issues, including:

  • Muscular pain
  • Dental pain
  • Period pain
  • Backaches
  • Migraines
  • Headaches
  • Cold
  • Flu
  • Feverishness

Who are Cuprofen Maximum Strength Tablets suitable for?

These tablets are suitable for adults and children aged 12 and over. Do not take these tablets if you are allergic to ibuprofen or any of the other ingredients in the tablets:

  • Lactose
  • Croscarmellose sodium
  • Methylcellulose
  • Magnesium stearate
  • Hypromellose
  • Talc
  • Titanium Dioxide
  • Erythrosine Aluminium Lake
  • Hydroxypropylmethyl Cellulose

You should also not take Cuprofen if you:

  • Have or in the past had a stomach ulcer, perforation, or bleeding
  • Are allergic to aspirin or other painkillers in the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory family
  • Are currently taking more than 75mg aspirin tablets
  • Suffer from liver, kidney, or heart problems
  • Are in the last 3 months of pregnancy

How often should I take these tablets?

You should take one tablet three times a day at the most, and also leave at least four hours between doses. Ideally, they are taken with food.


Are there any side effects?

As with most medicine, there can be side effects to taking Cuprofen. If you get any of these side effects, or a more serious side effect, then talk to your doctor immediately:

  • Nausea
  • Indigestion
  • Diarrhoea
  • Vomiting

You can also record any side effect that you notice using the MHRA Yellow Card Scheme.

Sometimes when you take painkillers you find that although they make your headache, backache, or whatever your aches and pains you’re trying to treat a bit better, they don’t quite do the job.

This is when you might consider picking up another painkiller to try to kick that pain to the curb. But how do you know if this is safe? Can you take more than one painkiller at once?

If you’ve ever looked into your medicine cabinet and asked yourself one of these questions then you’ve come to the right place.
