What is Nuromol?
Nuromol is a painkiller that combines two popular everyday pain relief medications - ibuprofen and paracetamol - to ease your pain, fever, and inflammation. If you’re suffering with mild to moderate pain and find that one painkiller isn’t enough to control it, Nuromol could be the perfect solution.
What is the recommended dosage?
Always take Nuromol exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor / Chemist4U pharmacist has told you. This medicine is for short term use only. Do not take Nuromol for more than 3 days; if your symptoms still persist, speak to your doctor or Chemist4U pharmacist for advice.
Before you decide to take this product, try a pain relief medication that contains a single active ingredient (either ibuprofen or paracetamol) first. If you’re still in pain, then take Nuromol the following day. Take 1 tablet with water and food up to 3 times per day, leaving at least 6 hours between doses. Take a maximum of 2 tablets 3 times a day, but only if your pain hasn’t been relieved by 1 dose. Do not take more than 6 tablets within a 24 hour period.
How does Nuromol relieve pain?
Nuromol contains two active ingredients that work together to ease your pain. The first is 500mg of paracetamol, an everyday painkiller that can also help to bring down a fever or high temperature. The second is 200mg of ibuprofen, another popular painkiller that’s part of a group of medications called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It works by altering how your body responds to pain, while reducing swelling and inflammation.
Is Nuromol suitable for children?
Nuromol is only suitable for adults aged 18 years and over. If you’re looking for pain relief for your baby or child, you should speak to your doctor or Chemist4U pharmacist for advice on an alternative treatment option.
Is Nuromol suitable for pregnant and breastfeeding women?
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, think you may be pregnant or are planning to have a baby, you must ask your doctor or Chemist4U pharmacist for advice before taking any new medicine. If you’re breastfeeding or in the first 6 months of pregnancy, you must ask your doctor or Chemist4U pharmacist for advice before taking this medicine. Do not take this medicine if you're in the last 3 months of pregnancy.
Can Nuromol be taken with food and drink?
Nuromol should be taken with food and drink to reduce the likelihood of you developing any side effects. This product contains ibuprofen and if taken without food, it may irritate your stomach. Take these tablets with things such as biscuits, a sandwich, or a glass of milk.
