Buy Nurofen Plus Tablets (32 tablets )

What is Nurofen Plus?

Nurofen Plus is a painkiller that contains both ibuprofen and codeine to offer fast acting relief from mild to moderate pain when simple pain relievers such as aspirin, paracetamol or ibuprofen alone is not sufficient.

Nurofen Plus is suitable for use in children and adults over the age of 12 years to get on top of pain caused by headaches, period pain, toothache and much more.

These tablets can be used for up to 3 days. If after 3 days you can not manage your pain without the use of Nurofen Plus you should speak to a pharmacist or doctor for further advice.

 

What is Nurofen Plus used for?

Nurofen Plus combines both ibuprofen and codeine to provide pain relief as well as reducing inflammation and fevers in children and adults over 12 years old.

Nurofen Plus can be used to treat mild to moderate pain caused by the following:

  • Migraine and headaches
  • Nerve pain
  • Period pain
  • Toothache
  • Back pain
  • Rheumatic pain
  • Muscular pain

 

How does Nurofen Plus work?

Because Nurofen Plus contains both ibuprofen and codeine it works in separate ways to combat pain.

Ibuprofen on its own is a pain killer and is a medication known as an Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug (NSAID). Pain and inflammation are caused by the body producing a chemical called prostaglandin as a result of infection or injury. NSAIDs work by blocking the production of prostaglandins, which reduces the pain sensation and any associated swelling.

Codeine belongs to a group of medicines called opioid analgesics which works directly on the central nervous system to block pain signals reaching the brain.

 

How long does Nurofen Plus take to work?

You should start to notice the pain relieving effects of Nurofen Plus within 30 to 60 minutes of taking the tablets. The effects should continue to provide you with comfort for between 4-6 hours.

 

How much codeine is in Nurofen Plus?

Each Nurofen Plus tablet contains 12.8mg of codeine and 200mg of ibuprofen.

Nurofen Plus and alcohol

It is not recommended to drink alcohol at the same time as taking Nurofen Plus, this is because it significantly increases your chances of being affected by side effects, most commonly making people feel more drowsy.

 

Can you take Nurofen Plus with paracetamol?

Nurofen Plus can be taken at the same time as paracetamol to give extra relief from pain. It is advisable to stagger the doses of Nurofen Plus and Paracetamol to ease pain more consistently throughout the day.
