  • Yes. It's just a stronger dose. Since you asked this in the baby section, I hope you aren't going to give this to your baby. He needs the baby version and needs to be given the correct dose for his weight.

  • It's not any different than what's sold in the store. Same ibuprofen but prescription sells a bigger dose in one pill.
