Prescriptions R Us LLC, the makers and a leading provider of compounded and specialty pharmaceuticals have announced that they are the first company to receive a formal certificate of Kashrus for its most popular compounded product PRU Kosher Ibuprofen for Kids. It is now produced under the supervision of HaRav Yisroel Zucker Shlita.
“This achievement underscores Prescriptions R Us LLC’s commitment to providing high quality compounded products for a variety of customers including those who seek high standards of kashrus”, says the company.
“This is a significant milestone for the kosher consumer”, said Rav Zucker who holds the position of the Rosh Kollel of the Kollel Ner Avraham and is one of the Rabbonim in the Lakewood’s Bais Horaah. “While commercial ibuprofen products may have kashrus issues because of the glycerin or flavorings that go into them, this is the only Ibuprofen with a formal heksher available on the market today” explained Rav Zucker.
Rav Zucker studied the ingredients that make up the product for about one week before coming down to the PRU laboratory to supervise its production.
“This is a huge achievement for kosher consumers who are seeking high quality, pharmaceutically elegant and tasty products combined with high standards of kashrus”, said Pinchas Kleyman CEO of the Prescriptions R Us LLC, “We received many “wow”s and “yum”s since we started to offer it to our customers in the beginning of 2010, when the igredients were originally reviewed by Rav Yechezkel Auerbach of KCL, and it comes in a variety of different flavors”.
PRU Kosher Ibuprofen is available at the Prescriptions R Us pharmacy in Lakewood or to be shipped anywhere in the U.S. upon request.
Ibuprofen is a drug in the category known as NSAIDs and it is used for fever and pain. It needs to be appropriately dosed based on weight every 6 hours if needed. It should be taken with food or milk and in case rash develops it needs to be stopped immediately and reported to your pediatrician.
Prescriptions R Us LLC has been involved in compounding since June of 2010 to solve such issues as compliance, availability and kashrus. It is known for such products as PRU Healthy Flora for Kids, PRU Kosher Mebendazole and PRU Diaper Rash Ointment and Skin Protectant among many others.

What about a decent tasting version of Benadryl. I understand that the liquid ones are not kosher. I use a prescription one for my son but it is so awful, it’s nearly impossible to get him to take it.
I think Refua recently advertised that they can do compound benadryl call them up and check it out!
We obviously make Benadryl as well as many other products in Kosher. We also make different dosage forms such Troches, Lolly Pops and so on from certified Kosher Ingredients. In fact it is much easier to make Benadryl then Ibuprofen since Benadryl or actually Diphenhydramine is soluable in water. Call us if you have any questions 732-534-5280 or e-mail [email protected]
Having Rav Zuckers hechsher is very Choshuv. He is one of the up and coming poskim in Klal Yisroel.
