What symptoms - if any - are you seeing 6-8 hours post ingestion? How much does Ted, weigh, please? Ibuprofen (Neurofen) can cause gastrointestinal ulceration at a dose of 110 mg/kg and renal damage at 330 mg/kg.

Hi, he has no symptoms as yet. He weighs 9kg
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 1 year ago.

Thank you. 400 mg/9 kg = 44 mg/kg. Ted's not in danger. Administering an over the counter antacid such as PepcidTwo at a dose of 0.25 mg/lb of the famotidine in that product repeated in 12 hours should suffice to offer Ted comfort. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
