Ibuprofen is available in several formulations. There is prescription strength ibuprofen, children’s strength ibuprofen, and a general over-the-counter strength for adult use. It is available as both ibuprofen pills (tablets, specifically) and as an oral suspension. Tablet dosage strength is 400, 600, and 800mg, with quantities varying according to availability. The oral suspension is available in either 118ml or 473ml bottles. Dosage strength for this product is 100mg/5ml. Both forms of the medication are taken orally. Take the tablets with plenty of water. When taking the oral suspension, use a precise measuring device. The amount to take depends on the condition being treated, the age of the patient, and the strength of the product. Consult with your doctor or pharmacist for guidance. Do not use ibuprofen pills or the oral suspension for purposes other than indicated on the label or on your prescription.

Yes, of course! Our card is not insurance, we simply provide discounts on prescriptions. Because pricing is an ongoing negotiation, please bring both your insurance card and searchRx coupon to your pharmacist to see which provides a more cost-effective option for you.
