The first intravenous formulation of ibuprofen, Caldolor, has been approved to treat pain and fever and is available for in-hospital use only. The approved dosages for Caldolor are 400-800 mg IV over 30 minutes, every 6 hours for acute pain; and 400 mg over 30 minutes, followed by 400 mg every 4-6 hours, or 100-200 mg every 4 hours, as needed, for fever. Caldolor should be used with caution in the elderly, in patients with a prior history of ulcer disease or GI bleeding, in those with fluid retention or heart failure, in those with renal or liver impairment, and in those taking diuretics or ACE inhibitors.
