Lexofen (Ibuprofen) 100mg/5mL Oral Suspension provides relief from pain, fever and inflammation in children aged from 3 months to 12 years.

Each 5mL of Lexofen oral suspension contains 100mg of ibuprofen. A nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) known for its effectiveness in relieving pain and reducing inflammation and fever. Ibuprofen works by inhibiting the production of prostaglandins (substances in the body that contribute to inflammation and pain sensation). It is effective in treating mild to moderate pain such as headaches, toothaches, ear ache and muscular pain. It is also very effective in reducing fever.

This formulation allows for more precise dosing adjustments, which is crucial in managing pain and fever in children based on their weight and age. It is important to follow the dosage instructions provided by healthcare professionals or as indicated on the packaging to ensure safe and effective use. It is recommended that doses are given every six to eight hours, leaving at least four hours between them. If symptoms persist or worsen, you should consult your doctor.

In addition to its effectiveness, the oral suspension form of Lexofen is orange-flavoured. This makes it pleasant to taste, easier to swallow and suitable for children.

Like all medications, Lexofen oral suspension may have potential side effects, although they are generally mild and transient. These can include gastrointestinal discomfort (such as stomach upset or nausea) and, less commonly, allergic reactions. Patients should consult their healthcare professional if they experience any unexpected symptoms or adverse effects while taking this medication.

In summary, Lexofen (Ibuprofen) 100mg/5mL Oral Suspension is a convenient and effective option for managing pain, inflammation, and fever in children. Its formulation ensures accurate dosing and ease of administration, providing relief for a variety of pain-related conditions.
