Special Precautions
Discuss first with a doctor if the patient has asthma, heart disease, liver cirrhosis, hypertension, kidney disease or taking other NSAIDs. Stop use and ask a doctor if there is severe allergic reaction including skin reddening, rash, and blisters.
Long-term continuous use may increase the risk of heart attack or stroke.
Side effects may be minimized by using the smallest dose for the shortest duration of time.
It should also be used with caution in patients who are elderly, pregnant or nursing a baby.
Consult the Doctor: Unless directed by a healthcare professional, discontinue use and ask a doctor or healthcare professional if pain gets worse or lasts more than 10 days and if fever persists or lasts more than 3 days.
Stop use or ask a doctor if there's blood in the vomit or bloody/black stools.
