Flurbiprofen Dosing

For most people with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, dosing starts at flurbiprofen 200 mg daily, taken in two, three, or four smaller doses throughout the day. A single dose of flurbiprofen should never exceed 100 mg. If the pain does not go away after several weeks, your healthcare provider may increase your dosage. If the pain still does not subside, he or she may recommend other pain relief options.

Flurbiprofen Dosing: An Introduction

The dose of flurbiprofen (Ansaid®) that your healthcare provider recommends will vary depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • The medical condition you are being treated for
  • Other medical conditions you may have
  • Other medications you may be currently taking.
     
As always, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
 

Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis

The recommended starting dosage of flurbiprofen for most people with rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis is 200 mg per day. This daily dose is divided into smaller doses taken two, three, or four times a day. The maximum dose that should be taken at one time is 100 mg.
 
Your healthcare provider will usually start with a smaller daily dose. If the pain is still present after several weeks, your healthcare provider may choose to increase your dose. If the pain still does not improve, he or she may recommend other options for pain relief.
 
If you are taking flurbiprofen to help relieve arthritis symptoms, such as joint inflammation, it may take one to two weeks for it to work to its full potential. However, flurbiprofen helps to relieve pain in about one hour.
