According to the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), the agency was reportedly informed that Spanish drug manufacturer, Tris Pharma, voluntary recalled one lot of Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension due to potentially high concentrations of the drug.
Ibuprofen Oral Suspension is a Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug (NSAID) typically used to treat fever or pain. It is also used to relieve discomfort from teething and ear infections. It is generally safe when taken as directed by physician. However, excessive doses of Ibuprofen can be very dangerous, especially in infants who may be more susceptible to higher potency of the drug which can cause renal injury.
Details of additional Ibuprofen oral suspension being recalled are:
