What Is MOTRIN®?

You work hard and play hard — each day brings a new goal to achieve. When pain gets in your way, you simply don’t have time to entertain it. At times like these, you may wish to turn to an over-the-counter pain reliever to alleviate your symptoms and get you back to business.

MOTRIN® is classified as an NSAID, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, and contains ibuprofen[i].  Ibuprofen is used to relieve pain and reduce fever. Adult MOTRIN® IB products contain 200 milligrams of ibuprofen and are available as tablets or Liquid Gels (liquid-filled capsules)[ii]. Children's MOTRIN® and Infants' MOTRIN® products are also available.

The ibuprofen in MOTRIN® works to relieves minor aches and pains. It disrupts the production of prostaglandins, which are substances produced in response to injury that contribute to pain and inflammation. MOTRIN® can temporarily reduce fever and relieve minor aches and pains caused by:

  • headache
  • minor pain of arthritis
  • the common cold
  • muscular aches
  • backache
  • toothache
  • menstrual cramps
