    How should you take ibuprofen?


    Use ibuprofen exactly as directed on the label, or as prescribed by your doctor. Do not use in larger amounts or for longer than recommended. Use the lowest dose that is effective in treating your condition.

    Do not take more than your recommended dose. An ibuprofen overdose can damage your stomach or intestines. The maximum amount of ibuprofen for adults is 800 milligrams per dose or 3200 mg per day (4 maximum doses). Use only the smallest amount needed to get relief from your pain, swelling, or fever.

    A child’s dose of ibuprofen is based on the age and weight of the child. Carefully follow the dosing instructions provided with your child’s medicine for the age and weight of your child. Ask a doctor or pharmacist if you have questions.

    Take ibuprofen with food or milk to lessen stomach upset.

    Shake the oral suspension (liquid) well just before you measure a dose. Measure liquid medicine with the dosing syringe provided, or with a special dose-measuring spoon or medicine cup. If you do not have a dose-measuring device, ask your pharmacist for one.

    The ibuprofen chewable tablet must be chewed before you swallow it.

    If you use this medicine long-term, you may need frequent medical tests.

    Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Do not allow the liquid medicine to freeze.
