Dosage Form

Tablet for Oral Use


IBUMATE contains two active Ibuprofen and Paracetamol.

Paracetamol works to stop the pain messages from getting through to the brain. Paracetamol also acts in the brain to reduce fever.

Ibuprofen belongs to a family of medicines called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS). This group of medicines work by relieving pain, inflammation (swelling, redness, soreness) and fever.


Absorption: Acetaminophen has 88% oral bioavailability and reaches its highest plasma concentration 90 minutes after ingestion.

Ibuprofen is very well absorbed orally and the peak serum concentration can be attained in 1 to 2 hours after extravascular administration. The average Cmax, Tmax and AUC ranges around 20 mcg/ml, 2 h and 70 mcg.h/ml. These parameters can vary depending on the enantiomer form, route, and dose of administration.

Distribution: Volume of distribution is about 0.9L/kg. 10 to 20% of the drug is bound to red blood cells. Acetaminophen appears to be widely distributed throughout most body tissues except in fat. The apparent volume of distribution of Ibuprofen is of 0.1 L/kg

Metabolism &Excretion: Acetaminophen is mainly metabolized in the liver and excreted in the urine. Less than 5% is excreted in the urine as free (unconjugated) acetaminophen and at least 90% of the administered dose is excreted within 24 hours. Ibuprofen is rapidly metabolized and eliminated in the urine & accounts for more than 90% of the administered dose.

Half Life: After an oral dose, the half-life can range from 4 to 8 hours depending on the severity of injury to the liver, as it heavily metabolizes acetaminophen. The serum half-life of Ibuprofen is 1.2-2 hours.


This drug is used to treat mild to moderate pain (from headaches, menstrual periods, toothaches, backaches, osteoarthritis, or cold/flu aches and pains) and to reduce fever.
