Caldolor (Ibuprofen) for Injection 800 mg/8 mL vials (100 mg/mL) 25/tray (Rx)
Caldolor (ibuprofen) was the first injectable therapy approved in the United States for the treatment of both pain and fever. It is indicated in adults and pediatric (patients six months and older) as a sole treatment for the management of mild to moderate pain; as an adjunct to reduce the use of opioids in the management of moderate to severe pain; and for the reduction of fever.
