When and How Do I Take Dolobid?

General considerations for when and how to take Dolobid include the following:
 
  • Dolobid comes in a tablet form. It is generally taken two times a day (based on your healthcare provider's recommendation).
  • To avoid an upset stomach, take your Dolobid with food or milk.
  • Do not break, chew, or crush the Dolobid tablets.
  • For the medication to work properly, you have to take it as prescribed. It will not work if you stop taking it.
  • It is important to take the lowest effective dose for the least amount of time in order to treat your condition. This will decrease the chances of serious side effects occurring.
     

Dosing Guidelines

The dosage your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • The medical condition being treated
  • Other medical conditions you may have
  • Other medications you may be currently taking.
     
As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
