Reprofen is rapidly absorbed after oral administration and peak concentrations in plasma are reached after 15-30 minutes.
The half-life in plasma is about 2 hours. Reprofen is extensively (99%) bound to plasma, proteins, but the drug occupies only a fraction of the total drug-binding sites at usual concentrations.
Reprofen passes slowly into the synovial spaces and may remain there in higher concentration as the concentration in plasma declines.
The excretion of Reprofen is rapid and complete. More than 90% of an ingested dose is excreted in the urine as metabolites or their conjugates. The major metabolites are hydroxylated or carboxylated compounds.
