Ibuprofen for Kids

Ibuprofen for Kids

Liquid Ibuprofen for Children

Ibuprofen is a pain relief medicine that can be used to soothe your little one when they’re dealing with the everyday aches and pains that make us all uncomfortable.

It’s perfect for easing headaches, earaches, toothaches, and much more, helping your little one to feel better fast.

Ibuprofen is an NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory), which means that it won’t just ease your child’s pain, but it can help to reduce inflammation and bring down high temperatures too.

This makes it perfect for kids who need help managing symptoms of cold and flu, or for managing pain and inflammation caused by sprains or strains, ideal for kids who get bumped and bruised while playing.

Ibuprofen is available under its generic name or in popular brands like Nurofen and Calprofen, which is made by the same manufacturers as the popular pain relief medication, Calpol.

What is the Dosage of Ibuprofen for Kids?

 

The maximum dosage of ibuprofen that you can safely give to your child will differ depending on your child’s age and, with younger children, their weight.

 

If you’re using liquid ibuprofen with 100mg in 5ml of liquid to treat pain and fever in your little one, you should usually use the following doses:

 

  • Children aged 3 – 6 months who weigh over 5kg or 11lbs: 2.5ml of liquid ibuprofen three times a day. Do not use for more than 24 hours.
  • Children aged 6 – 12 months: 2.5ml up to three times a day. Do not use for more than 3 days.
  • Children aged 1 – 2 years: 2.5ml three or four times a day. Do not use for more than 3 days.
  • Children aged 3 – 7 years: 5ml three or four times a day. Do not use for more than 3 days.
  • Children aged 8 – 12 years: 10ml three or four times a day. Do not use for more than 3 days.

 

Each ibuprofen product can contain different amounts of ibuprofen, so be sure to read the patient information leaflet contained with your product to make sure you’re giving your child the right dose.

 

If you’re ever unsure about whether you should give your child ibuprofen or how much you should give, speak to your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
