Nurofen Plus are pain relief tablets that help to ease moderate pains that can’t be managed with painkillers such as paracetamol alone. Ideal for those who are looking for an easy way to manage moderate aches and pains.
Nurofen Plus can be used to ease many different kinds of moderate pains. Some of the most popular reasons why people use this product include:
Nurofen Plus contains the active ingredients ibuprofen and codeine, which work together to ease pain that can’t be managed by other painkillers such as paracetamol, aspirin, or ibuprofen alone. Ibuprofen is a part of a group of medicines known as NSAIDs, which work by changing your body’s response to pain, inflammation, and fever. Codeine is part of a group of medicines called opioid analgesics, which means it works to ease pain and can be used on its own or in combination with other painkillers, such as ibuprofen, to ease difficult to manage pain.
Swallow 1 – 2 Nurofen Plus tablets with water up to 3 times a day. Do not take for more than 3 days, if your pain has not improved after 3 days speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist.

Getting a headache or a migraine is one of the most uncomfortable feelings you can have, and potentially one of the most painful as well. There is a wide range of treatments out there that say that they help clear headaches and migraines but which ones are the most suitable?
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.
Headaches and migraines are a real pain in the neck, or well, a pain in the head, but how do you know if you’re dealing with a migraine or a headache?
Both of them cause a lot of pain in your head, but what is the difference between the two?
If you’re not sure whether the head pain that’s making you feel extra grumpy every Monday morning is a headache or a migraine then you’re in luck, as we’re about to break down what makes the two so different.
