Nurofen Plus is for the short term treatment of acute, moderate pain (such as rheumatic and muscular pain, backache, migraine, headache, neuralgia, period pain and dental pain) which is not considered to be relieved by other analgesics such as paracetamol, ibuprofen or aspirin alone.

How to use

Adults, the elderly and children over 12 years of age:

One or two tablets every four to six hours.

Children aged 12-18 years:

One or two tablets every four to six hours.

Children under 12 years:

Nurofen Plus (which contains Codeine) should not be used in children below the age of 12 years because of the risk of opioid toxicity due to the variable and unpredictable metabolism of codeine to morphine.


No special dosage modifications are required for elderly patients, unless renal or hepatic function is impaired, in which case dosage should be assessed individually.

Do not take more than 6 tablets in 24 hours.

Leave at least four hours between doses and do not take more than 1200mg in any 24 hour period.

The duration of treatment should be limited to 3 days and if no effective pain relief is achieved the patients/carers should be advised to seek the views of a physician.

For short term use only. Codeine should be used at the lowest effective dose for the shortest period of time necessary to relieve symptoms. The patient should consult a doctor if symptoms persist or worsen, or if the product is required for more than 3 days.
