Thanks for posting your query.

After going through your query, I would like to comment the following:

1. You have a premature baby at 7 months and 8 days.

2. Ibugesic contains Ibuprofen which is a cyclo-oxygenase inhibitor and is effective for closure of patent ductus arteriosus in preterm infants. It is for this reason that your child has been prescribed Ibugesic syrup. Since if this ductus arteriosus is not closed after birth then it may lead to problems in oxygenation of blood, recurrent infections and increased load on heart.

I hope I have answered your query. I will be glad to answer any follow up queries.

Please accept my answer if you have no follow up queries.
