What are Flarin 200mg Soft Capsules?

Flarin 200mg soft capsules are a pain relief medication that can also help to ease inflammation and reduce high temperatures. These easy-to-swallow capsules contain 200mg of ibuprofen. If you need pain relief that will get to work quickly, Flarin could be the perfect choice for you.


Is Flarin suitable for joint pain?

Flarin capsules are ideal for those who suffer from sore, swollen joints, as they work as an anti-inflammatory as well as a pain relief medicine. By easing swelling, it can help to ease stiffness in your painful joints and make movement easier in conditions like non-serious arthritic conditions.


What other kinds of pain can I use this product for?

Although Flarin is ideal for easing joint pain, it can also be used to soothe other types of aches and pains all over the body, including:

  • Back pain
  • Rheumatic pain
  • Muscular pain
  • Neuralgia
  • Migraines
  • Headaches
  • Dental pain
  • Period pain
  • Fever
  • Cold and flu symptoms


How does the Ibuprofen in Flarin capsules help to ease pain?

Each Flarin capsule contains 200mg of the active ingredient ibuprofen, which is a popular painkiller. Ibuprofen is an NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug), which means it works by changing how your body reacts to pain and inflammation. This means that Flarin capsules can ease pain and swelling and can also help to bring down a high temperature.


Can I take this medication if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?

If you’re within the first 6 months of pregnancy or are breastfeeding you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist before taking this product. Flarin capsules are not suitable for use during the last 3 months of pregnancy.

I use this product for a painful knee as it seems to be better at reducing pain and is less damaging on the stomach than other ibuprofen brands.

Advice & Guides

Can I take two painkillers at once?

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.
