Description of the drug approved by the manufacturer for the printed edition of 2015.


It has antipyretic, analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect.
Antipyretic effect due to the blocking of COX-1 and COX-2 in the cascade of arachidonic acid CNS, which leads to a decrease in the synthesis of prostaglandins, a decrease in their concentration in the cerebrospinal fluid and a decrease in the excitation of the center of thermoregulation.
The effect of lowering the fever temperature begins 30 minutes after taking the drug, its maximum effect is manifested after 3 hours.
The leading mechanism of analgesic action is a decrease in the production of prostaglandins of classes E, F and I, biogenic amines, which leads to the prevention of hyperalgesia at the level of sensitivity change nociceptors.
Analgesic effect is most pronounced for inflammatory pains.
The anti-inflammatory effect is caused by oppression of COX activity and a decrease in the synthesis of prostaglandins in inflammatory foci, which leads to a decrease in the secretion of inflammatory mediators, a decrease in the activity of the exudative and proliferative phase of the inflammatory process.

Like other NSAIDs, ibuprofen displays antiaggregant activity.


Suction and distribution

After ingestion, more than 80% of ibuprofen is absorbed from the digestive tract.
Cmax in the blood plasma for fasting - 45 minutes, when taken after meals - 1.5-2.5 h; in the synovial fluid - 2-3 hours, where higher concentrations are created than in the blood plasma. After absorption, about 60% of the pharmacologically inactive R-form of ibuprofen is slowly transformed into an active S-form.
Binding to blood plasma proteins (mainly with albumins) is 90%.

Ibuprofen does not cumulate in the body.


Ibuprofen is biotransformed mainly in the liver.

It is subject to presystemic and post-systemic metabolism.


Ibuprofen has a two-phase kinetics of elimination with T 1/2 2-2.5 hours. 60-90% of the drug is excreted by the kidneys as metabolites and products of their conjugation with glucuronic acid, to a lesser extent, with bile and in unchanged form is not more than 1%.
After taking a single dose, the drug is completely removed within 24 hours.

The drug is intended only for the treatment of children.

Ibuprofen-Akrihin contains sugar, so it must be used with caution in patients with diabetes mellitus.

The appointment of the drug Ibuprofen-Akrihin during pregnancy is possible only if the potential benefit to the mother exceeds the possible risk to the fetus.

If it is necessary to prescribe the drug Ibuprofen-Akrihin in the lactation period, the question of stopping breastfeeding should be solved.


The drug is contraindicated in severe impairment of kidney function.


The drug is contraindicated in severe violations of liver function.


In children from 3 to 6 months the drug can be used only after consultation with the doctor in charge.

Contraindicated use of the drug in children under 3 months .


In patients with bronchial asthma or other diseases occurring with bronchospasm, ibuprofen may increase the risk of developing bronchospasm.
The use of the drug in these patients is permissible only under the condition of great care, and in case of difficulty in breathing, consult a doctor immediately.
During the long-term treatment of NSAIDs, control of the peripheral blood picture and the functional state of the liver and kidneys is necessary.

To prevent the development of NSAID-gastropathy it is recommended to combine with prostaglandin E preparations (misoprostol).
When symptoms of NSAID-gastropathy are shown, careful monitoring including esophagogastroduodenoscopy, a blood test with determination of hemoglobin, hematocrit, analysis of feces for latent blood.
If it is necessary to determine 17-ketosteroids, the drug should be discontinued 48 hours before the test.

During the period of treatment, the use of drugs containing ethanol is not recommended.

To reduce the risk of developing unwanted effects from the gastrointestinal tract, Ibuprofen-Akrihin should be applied at the lowest effective dose with the minimum possible short course.

In 1 ml of the suspension of the preparation Ibuprofen-Akrihin contains about 0.34 g of sucrose, which corresponds to approximately 0.03 XE.
Thus, in the minimum single dose of the drug equal to 2.5 ml, 0.85 g of sucrose is contained (corresponding to 0.075 XE); in a maximum single dose of 15 ml, contains 5.13 g of sucrose (corresponding to 0.45 XE)
Impact on the ability to drive vehicles and manage mechanisms

Given the potential for the development of significant side effects, during the treatment period, care must be taken when driving vehicles and engaging in potentially hazardous activities requiring increased concentration and speed of psychomotor reactions.


Symptoms: abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, retardation, headache, tinnitus, depression, drowsiness, metabolic acidosis, coma, hemorrhagic diathesis, lowering blood pressure, convulsions, stopping breathing, acute renal failure, liver dysfunction, tachycardia, bradycardia , atrial fibrillation.
Children under the age of 5 are particularly prone to apnea, coma and convulsions.
Serious consequences associated with the toxic effects of the drug manifest themselves usually after taking a dose exceeding 400 mg / kg body weight.
In case of an overdose, immediately consult a doctor.
Treatment: gastric lavage (only for an hour after taking the drug), activated charcoal, alkaline drink, symptomatic therapy (correction of acid-base state, blood pressure).


Do not use ibuprofen concomitantly with other NSAIDs.
For example, acetylsalicylic acid reduces the anti-inflammatory effect of ibuprofen and increases the side effect.
If possible, avoid simultaneous use of ibuprofen and diuretics, due to the weakening of the diuretic effect and the risk of developing kidney failure.

Ibuprofen reduces the hypotensive activity of vasodilators (including ACE inhibitors).

Ibuprofen enhances the effect of oral hypoglycemic agents (especially sulfonylurea derivatives) and insulin.

Inductors of microsomal oxidation (phenytoin, ethanol, barbiturates, rifampicin, phenylbutazone, tricyclic antidepressants) increase the production of hydroxylated active metabolites, increasing the risk of developing severe hepatotoxic reactions.

Antacids and colestyramine reduce the absorption of ibuprofen.

Cefamandol, cefoperazone, cefotetan, valproic acid, plikamycin increase the frequency of hypoprothrombinemia.

Means with myelotosic action increase the manifestation of hematotoxicity of the drug.

Cyclosporins, gold preparations increase the effect of ibuprofen on the synthesis of prostaglandins in the kidneys, which is manifested by increased nephrotoxicity.

Ibuprofen increases the plasma concentration of cyclosporine and the likelihood of its hepatotoxic effects.

Drugs that block tubular secretion, reduce excretion and increase the plasma concentration of ibuprofen.

Strengthens the effect of indirect anticoagulants, antiaggregants, fibrinolytic drugs (increased risk of hemorrhagic complications).

Increases the concentration in the blood of digoxin, methotrexate and lithium preparations.

Caffeine increases the analgesic effect of ibuprofen.


The drug is approved for use as a means of OTC.
