Galpharm Migraine Relief Capsules

Galpharm Migraine Relief Capsules provide migraine and headache as well as rheumatic and muscular pain, backache, neuralgia, dental pain, period pain, fever and the symptoms of cold and flu.

Galpharm Migraine Relief Capsules contain the active ingredient ibuprofen, an non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that works by changing how the body responds to pain, swelling and high temperature. 
Galpharm Migraine Relief Capsules are intended for short-term use only. Always use them for the shortest time possible and take the lowest dose that relieves your symptoms.

Adults, the elderly and children over 12 years:
  • Take 1 to 2 capsules, up to 3 times a day, as required.
  • Swallow capsules with a glass of water, preferably with or after food.
  • Do not take more often than every 4hours.
  • Do not exceed 6 capsules in 24 hours.
Do not take Galpharm Migraine Relief Capsules for longer than 10 days unless your doctor tells you to.
  • Active Ingredient: Ibuprofen 200mg.
  • Other Ingredients: Maize Starch, Methylcellulose, Magnesium Stearate, Gelatin, Erythrosine (E127), Titanium Dioxide (E171), Black Iron Oxide (E172), Shellac and Propylene Glycol.
  • Galpharm Migraine Relief Capsules contain sucrose. If you have been told by your doctor that you have an intolerance to some sugars, contact your doctor before taking this medicine.
  • Ibuprofen belongs to a group of medicines which may impair fertility in women. This effect is reversible on stopping the medicine. It is unlikely that ibuprofen, used occasionally, will affect your chances of becoming pregnant, however, tell your doctor before taking this medicine if you have problems becoming pregnant.
Do not take Galpharm Migraine Relief Capsules if you:
  • Have or have ever had a stomach ulcer, perforation or bleeding of the stomach.
  • Are allergic to ibuprofen, any of the other ingredients or to aspirin, or other painkillers.
  • Have kidney or heart failure or severe liver failure.
  • Are taking other NSAID painkillers, or aspirin with a daily dose above 75mg.
  • Are in the last 3 months of pregnancy.
  • Are under 12 years old.
Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking Galpharm Migraine Relief Capsules if you:
  • Are elderly because you are at higher risk of serious side effects, particularly stomach problems.
  • Have or have suffered from asthma, diabetes, high cholesterol or have allergies.
  • Have liver or kidney problems.
  • Have stomach or bowel disorders including Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis.
  • Are in the first 6 months of pregnancy or are breastfeeding.
  • Have Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) - a condition of the immune system causing joint pain, skin changes and other organ disorders.
  • Have, have previously had or at risk of heart problems, high blood pressure or stroke. Medicines such as Galpharm Migraine Relief Capsules may be associated with a small increased risk of heart attack or stroke. Any risk is more likely with high doses and prolonged treatment. Do not exceed the recommended dose. If you have heart problems, previously had a stroke or think that you might be at risk of these conditions (e.g. high blood pressure, diabetes or cholesterol or are a smoker), you should discuss your treatment with your doctor or pharmacist.
