Nuromol contains two active ingredients: ibuprofen and paracetamol.
Ibuprofen belongs to a group of medicines known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) .
NSAIDs work by reducing pain, reducing swelling and lowering high temperatures.
Paracetamol is an analgesic which works in a different way from ibuprofen to relieve pain and fever.
Nuromol is used for the temporary relief of mild to moderate pain associated with migraine, headache, backache, period pain, dental pain, rheumatic and muscular pain, the pain of non-serious arthritis, cold and flu symptoms, sore throat and fever.
