Inflamax Paediatric Suspension is 90 to 99 % bound to plasma proteins and has a plasma half life of about 2 hours.

It’s rapidly excreted in the urine mainly as metabolites and their conjugates. About 1 % is excreted in urine as unchanged ibuprofen and about 14 % as conjugated ibuprofen There appears to be little if any excretion in breast milk.
