Nurofen for Children Suspension Liquid Strawberry 100ml is an over-the-counter medication that is designed to help reduce pain and fever in children. It contains the active ingredient ibuprofen, which is a type of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that works by reducing inflammation and blocking the production of certain chemicals in the body that cause pain and fever.
This suspension liquid is typically given orally to children aged between 3 months to 12 years, and it is available in a variety of flavors, including strawberry. The recommended dosage will depend on the child's weight and age, and it is important to always follow the dosage instructions carefully and not exceed the recommended amount.
It is important to note that while ibuprofen can be an effective pain reliever and fever reducer for children, it may cause side effects in some cases. Common side effects may include upset stomach, nausea, and dizziness. In rare cases, it may also cause more serious side effects, such as allergic reactions or liver damage. It is always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional before giving any medication to a child, especially if they have any underlying health conditions or are taking other medications.
