When it comes to relieving pain, people instantly think of three things: paracetamol, aspirin and ibuprofen. Ibuprofen, the active ingredient in Nurofen, is known to be particularly effective for most types of body pain.

Millions of users worldwide can attest to the effectiveness of Nurofen in providing fast and thorough relief from every kind of painful condition. The ibuprofen content of Nurofen is considered the one key element in its success. But while Nurofen is the brand name of this powerful drug, some Nurofen products don't contain purely ibuprofen. Nurofen Cold & Flu, for example, contains pseudoephedrine, a decongestant that does not cause drowsiness, unlike many other cold medications in the market.

Nurofen is made and developed by Boots Healthcare, a UK drug company that was recently acquired by Reckitt Beckinser, a corporation also based in the UK. Reckitt Benckiser is a major multinational manufacturer of cleaning products, and a recognized player among the FTSE 100 Index of companies traded on the London Stock Exchange. When this company bought the over-the-counter (OTC) drug manufacturing business of the Boots Group, it purchased three internationally known brands: Clearasil anti-acne treatments, Strepsils sore throat lozenges, and Nurofen analgesics.

Ibuprofen is the secret to Nurofen's success. This drug is a non-selective NSAID, or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. It is usually prescribed for persistent discomforts, such as rheumatoid arthritis, migraines, sunburn, fever and dysmennorhea. Non-selective NSAIDs are known for potentially causing gastrointestinal adverse drug reactions (ADRs) when administered in large doses, which is why they are not prescribed to people with ulcers or are susceptible to ulcers. But among non-selective NSAIDs, ibuprofen is considered to be the safest, as it stands the lowest chance of producing negative side effects. OTC ibuprofen preparations are typically low-dosage and safe for general use. This drug was also developed by Boots Healthcare.

While ibuprofen is more or less universal and will cure most minor aches and pains, different kinds of pains and physiological makeups will require different dosages. Children for example will require significantly lower dosages. Children are highly sensitive to new chemicals, especially infants, but with proper administration they too may benefit from the pain-relieving properties of ibuprofen. Nurofen for Children comes in syrup form, with an easy-dosing syringe that will make measuring dosages more efficient.

Anyone who has ever experienced trying to make a one-year-old take his or her medicine in syrup form, however, would know how difficult it could be, especially if it doesn't taste good at all. Adults already have trouble swallowing bitter medicine - how much harder would it be for a baby? Knowing this, the manufacturers of the syrup form of Nurofen enriched it with a delicious strawberry flavor, which makes the taste far less unpleasant for your baby, and makes the task of relieving your baby's pain much easier for you!

Nurofen for Children could cure a wide variety of childhood ailments, such as sore throats, earaches, headaches, colds, and even teething pains. Like other forms of Nurofen, the syrup could also be bought over the counter - however, before administering any drug to an infant or toddler, it is always best to seek the doctor's advice first.

Adults may best know Nurofen in its capsule or tablet forms. But it is also available in gel form for fast relief of sprains, scrapes and other soft tissue injuries. The anti-inflammatory properties of its 5% w/w ibuprofen content allows it to become an effective topical medicine as well. This external medication is applied like any ointment, directly on afflicted areas. Pain instantly stops being an issue, as contact with the gel does not cause additional stinging or discomfort. It is also non-greasy, odorless, and it does not leave a stain on the skin.

Migraine is actually a different sort of pain altogether, and as such requires special attention. The New Zealand Migraine Sufferers Support Group reports that at least 350,000 New Zealanders suffer from migraine pain. This calls for medicine specifically formulated to get rid of migraine, fast! When it comes to migraine cures, few know of any OTC drug that is more effective than ibuprofen. However, Nurofen Migraine Pain takes the cure one step further and presents ibuprofen lysine, which helps the caplet dissolve more quickly than regular ibuprofen capsules.

When it comes to relieving pain, Nurofen knows the worth of speedy effectiveness.
