When and How to Take It

Some general considerations to keep in mind when taking Vimovo include the following:
  • Vimovo comes in extended-release tablets and is usually taken by mouth twice daily.
  • Take this medication at least 30 minutes before meals.
  • Do not crush, chew, break, or dissolve the tablets, as this destroys the extended-release properties.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.

Dosing Information

The dose of this medication that your healthcare provider recommends may vary, depending on how you respond to the medication (or how you have responded to similar medications in the past).

Just like any medicine, Vimovo can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the drug will experience problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well.
If reactions do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
Common side effects of Vimovo may include but are not limited to:
  • Inflammation of the lining of the stomach
  • Indigestion or heartburn
  • Diarrhea
  • Stomach ulcers.
