  • take more or for a longer time than directed

Heart attack and stroke warning

NSAIDs, except aspirin, increase the risk of heart attack, heart failure, and stroke. These can be fatal. The risk is higher if you use more than directed or for longer than directed.

Do not use
  • if you have ever had an allergic reaction to any other pain reliever/fever reducer
  • unless you have time for a full night's sleep
  • in children under 12 years of age
  • right before or after heart surgery
  • with any other product containing diphenhydramine, even one used on skin
  • if you have sleeplessness without pain

Ask a doctor before use if

Ask a doctor or pharmacist before use if you are
  • taking sedatives or tranquilizers, or any other sleep-aid
  • under a doctor's care for any continuing medical illness
  • taking any other antihistamines
  • taking aspirin for heart attack or stroke, because ibuprofen may decrease this benefit of aspirin
  • taking any other drug

When using this product
  • drowsiness will occur

Stop use and ask a doctor if

    • weakness in one part or side of body
    • slurred speech
    • leg swelling
  • pain gets worse or lasts more than 10 days

  • redness or swelling is present in the painful area
  • any new symptoms appear

If pregnant or breast-feeding, ask a health professional before use. It is especially important not to use ibuprofen during the last 3 months of pregnancy unless definitely directed to do so by a doctor because it may cause problems in the unborn child or complications during delivery.
