Brufen Plus is a powerful combination of 30mg of codeine phosphate and 400mg of ibuprofen. Doctors prescribe this ibuprofen/codeine medication to stop moderate to severe pain while reducing fevers and inflammation. This medication is an alternative to codeine/paracetamol medicines such as cocodamol.
Codeine and ibuprofen are among the most commonly used painkillers in the world, but they are not without risk. You should only use your medication as prescribed by the doctor.
Ibuprofen is a well known and trusted painkiller and NSAID (anti-inflammatory) which is available OTC in 200mg tablets (in UK) and in 400mg tablets in most countries in the EU. Brufen Plus adds the tried and tested painkilling ability of codeine, and it is often prescribed when ibuprofen by itself has not worked. Prescription strength NSAIDs like ibuprofen are often prescribed for a range of chronic conditions and inflammatory diseases including various forms of arthritis as well as some acute pain conditions such as gout and dental surgery.
NSAID is the common name for nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicines. These are a group of drugs that act both to fight pain and reduce fever, and many of the well-known remedies widely bought over the counter and in supermarkets fall into this group, such as aspirin and ibuprofen.
OTC NSAIDs are used to treat a wide range of medical conditions including headaches, painful periods, toothache, sprains and strains, and the common cold.
Brufen Plus is contraindicated in patients with a history of life-threatening circulatory problems, bleeding in the stomach or intestines, or any bleeding or blood-clotting disorder. Long term use increases the risk of heart attack or stroke. You should avoid drinking alcohol or taking other NSAIDs while taking Brufen Plus.
The addition of codeine greatly enhances the painkilling ability of ibuprofen. Codeine is one of the world’s oldest and most effective pain medications. For further information about codeine precautions, side-effects, and contraindications, visit the codeine page.
Brufen Plus contains the opiate, CODEINE PHOSPHATE. Codeine is converted to morphine by the liver. Accordingly it can be addictive if taken for prolonged periods. Codeine can be fatal in case of overdose. ONLY TAKE THIS MEDICATION AS PRESCRIBED BY THE DOCTOR.
