involving itch, swelling, inflammation,
redness and perhaps blistering and

possibly involving unexplained nausea

Before using this tube of gel for the first
time, open it as follows:
• Unscrew the cap, turn it upside down
and then use the sharp point of the cap to
pierce the membrane in the neck of the tube.

To use the gel
(for adults, the elderly and children over 12 years old):
• Use the gel up to three times a day,
leaving 4 hours between applications.
• Lightly apply the gel to intact skin over
the painful area.
• Squeeze out a 4 to 10 cm length of gel onto
the affected area, enough to thinly cover it,
then massage gently until absorbed. Do not apply
more than 30 cm of gel in any 24 hour period.
• Wash hands after use, unless treating them.
• Carry on using the gel in this way for up to
two weeks (or longer if recommended by your
doctor), until your condition gets better.
• If your symptoms worsen or continue for more
than two weeks, discuss this with your pharmacist
or doctor before continuing treatment


Do not use Ibuleve Speed Relief Gel:
• if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to ibuprofen
or any of the other ingredients of Ibuleve Speed
Relief Gel listed in Section 6;
• if you are asthmatic, or suffer from rhinitis
(allergic runny nose) or urticaria (hives) and
have ever had a bad reaction to aspirin,
ibuprofen or other NSAIDs in the past;
• if you are pregnant or breast-feeding;
• on broken, damaged, infected or diseased skin;
• if you have severe joint pain of recent onset that
is not related to an injury or period of overuse;
• if you feel ill, have a temperature or any other
symptoms that accompany the pain.
Before applying this product for the first time,
make sure it is suitable for you to use:
Because Ibuleve Speed Relief Gel is delivered
through the skin, directly over the painful area,
there is less risk of the complications that
sometimes occur when ibuprofen (or a similar
anti-inflammatory painkiller) is taken by mouth.
However, in rare cases you may be at risk:
• if you have a stomach ulcer
(also called a peptic or gastric ulcer);
• if you have ever had kidney problems;
• if you have ever had asthma;
• if you have ever had a bad reaction to aspirin
or ibuprofen taken by mouth.
If any of the above apply to you, only use this
product on advice from your doctor or pharmacist.
Take special care when using this product:
• Use it only on the skin.
• Do not use on children under 12 years of
age except on the advice of a doctor.
• Do not apply it to broken or irritated skin.
• Do not use under protective waterproof dressings.
• Do not use more than the recommended dose
• Keep the gel away from the eyes, nose and mouth.
Using other medicines
• Interaction between Ibuleve Speed Relief
Gel and blood pressure lowering drugs and
anticoagulants (medicines that stop blood
clotting) is possible, in theory, although very
unlikely. If you would like more advice about
this, speak to your doctor or pharmacist.
• If you are also taking aspirin or other NSAIDs by
mouth, discuss this beforehand with your doctor
or pharmacist because these may increase the
risk of undesirable effects.
• Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you
are taking or have recently taken any other
medicines including other medicines obtained
without prescription.
