Resolved Question:

Hi, without thinking I've just eaten 12 Strefen, with Flurbiprofen 8.75 mg.
It says on the package you shouldn't have more than 1 every 3-6 hours, or 5 in 24 hours..
Is it dangerous, what shall I do!!

Daniel Sheibley, MD :

Hello

Customer:

waiting

Daniel Sheibley, MD :

Yes. So you took them all at once?

Daniel Sheibley, MD :

The dose of Flurbiprofen by itself is 50mg every four hour or 100mg up to three times a day

Daniel Sheibley, MD :

So essentially you took a 100mg dose

Daniel Sheibley, MD :

you are totally fine.

Customer:

yes, they look exactly the same as we have in Sweden, called Strepsils, without anti inflammatory action

Daniel Sheibley, MD :

Just don't have any more for 8 hours

Daniel Sheibley, MD :

Any more than 300mg in one day is not recommended

Daniel Sheibley, MD :

So you are perfectly fine.

Daniel Sheibley, MD :

nothing to worry, you just took the maximum dose of flurbiprofen

Customer:

ok, I fell a bit strange...like fainting, is it because I was scared?

Daniel Sheibley, MD :

Yes

Daniel Sheibley, MD :

you must have worried a bit.

Daniel Sheibley, MD :

But you are fine.

Daniel Sheibley, MD :

Did I provide good service? I can discuss this more with you.

Customer:

ok, nothing to do just wait for it to get out of the system?

Daniel Sheibley, MD :

Don't take any more for 8 hours

Customer:

I won't!

Daniel Sheibley, MD :

You can take some after 8 hours though, just try not to go over 300mg cumulative of flurbiprofen in one day

Customer:

ok, then I'm satisfied! Thank you!

Daniel Sheibley, MD :

Did I provide good service?

Customer:

yes, you did.

Daniel Sheibley, MD :

Best wishes

Customer:

Thanks

Customer:
