Basic Treatment Instructions for Sulindac

General Dosing Information for Sulindac

Considerations for people taking sulindac include the following:
 
  • Your sulindac dosage should be taken by mouth with food and a full glass of water.
     
  • Try to take sulindac at the same time each day to maintain even levels of the medication in the blood.
     
  • 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 developing serious side effects.
     
  • For sulindac to work properly, you have to take it as prescribed. It will not work if you take it in a way other than how your healthcare provider recommends.
     
  • If you do not take your sulindac as scheduled, take your next dose as soon as you remember. If it is close to the next scheduled dose, skip the missed one and continue with normal dosing. Do not take a double dose or combine sulindac with other NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). It is okay to take sulindac with acetaminophen (Tylenol®).
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to sulindac or your sulindac dosage, talk to your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist. Do not stop taking sulindac without first discussing it with your healthcare provider.
