Motrin Pills

A healthcare provider may recommend Motrin® (ibuprofen) to treat mild to moderate pain, stiffness, fever, and inflammation. There are several forms and strengths of this medication available. It is sold in prescription and nonprescription strengths, and is available in the form of an oral suspension (liquid), caplets, and tablets (pills). Motrin works by blocking the effects of certain hormones in the body that cause pain and inflammation.
To help reduce the risk of developing serious side effects, it is important to take the lowest effective dose for the least amount of time in order to treat your condition.
