Dolobid Medicine

Dolobid® (diflunisal) is a prescription drug approved to relieve mild-to-moderate pain, including inflammation or stiffness due to rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis. By inhibiting the action of certain hormones that cause pain and inflammation in the body, the medicine can reduce pain related to bone, muscle, or tendon injury or inflammation. However, it does not cure arthritis, nor does it slow down its progression.
 
The medication comes in tablet form and is generally taken twice a day. To avoid an upset stomach, it should be taken with food or milk. At this time, Dolobid is not approved for use in children under the age of 12. Potential side effects include nausea, diarrhea, and headache -- however, most people are able to take it without any problems.
