Mcc04840Motrin 50 mg Chewable Tab
Drug Name: IBUPROFEN CHEWABLE - ORAL
Other Brand Names: Advil, Children's Advil, Motrin
Uses: Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), which relieves pain and swelling (inflammation). It is used to treat headaches, muscle aches, backaches, dental pain, menstrual cramps, arthritis, or athletic injuries. This medication is also used to reduce fever and to relieve minor aches and pain due to the common cold or flu. This drug works by blocking the enzyme in your body that makes prostaglandins. Decreasing prostaglandins helps to reduce pain, swelling, and fever. This product is used primarily in children. Do not give this to a child younger than 2 years of age unless directed to do so by the doctor.
