Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, etc.) Dosage Table

Capture

  • AGE LIMIT: Don’t use under 6 months of age unless directed by child’s doctor. (Reason: safety not established and doesn’t have FDA approval). Avoid multi-ingredient products in children under 6 years of age (FDA recommendations 1/2008).
  • DOSAGE: Determine by finding child’s weight in the top row of the dosage table.
  • MEASURING the DOSAGE: Syringes and droppers are more accurate than teaspoons. If possible, use the syringe or dropper that comes with the medication. If you use a teaspoon, it should be a measuring spoon. Regular spoons are not reliable. Also, remember that 1 level teaspoon equals 5 ml and that ½ teaspoon equals 2.5 ml.
  • IBUPROFEN DROPS: Ibuprofen infant drops come with a measuring syringe
  • BRAND NAMES: Motrin, Advil, generic ibuprofen
  • ADULT DOSAGE: 400 mg
  • FREQUENCY: Repeat every 6-8 hours as needed
