Vicks Flu Action is indicated in adults and adolescents aged 15 years and older.



Adults and adolescents aged 15 years and over:

1 tablet (equivalent to 200 mg of ibuprofen and 30 mg of pseudoephedrine hydrochloride) every 4-6 hours as needed.

For more severe symptoms, 2 tablets (equivalent to 400 mg of ibuprofen and 60 mg of pseudoephedrine hydrochloride) every 6-8 hours as needed, up to the maximum total daily dose.

The maximum total daily dose of 6 tablets (equivalent to 1200 mg of ibuprofen and 180 mg of pseudoephedrine hydrochloride) should not be exceeded.

Do not exceed 5 days of therapy for the adult population.

Do not exceed 3 days of therapy for adolescents (15-18 years).

This combination product should be used when both the decongestant action of pseudoephedrine hydrochloride and the analgesic and / or anti-inflammatory action of ibuprofen are required. If a symptom is predominant (nasal congestion or headache and / or fever), single active ingredient therapy is preferred.

In older patients and in patients with a history of ulcers, particularly if complicated with haemorrhage or perforation (see section 4.3), initiate therapy with the lowest possible dose because the risk of gastrointestinal haemorrhage, ulcer or perforation is greater as doses of NSAIDs.

Concomitant use of protective agents (misoprostol or proton pump inhibitors) should be considered in these patients, or in patients taking other drugs that may increase the risk of gastrointestinal events (see below and section 4.5).

In patients with renal or hepatic disorders it is necessary to adapt the dosage to the individual patient.

Undesirable effects can be reduced by using the lowest effective dose for the minimum duration necessary to relieve symptoms (see section 4.4).
