How to take dexibuprofen
- Before you start the treatment, read the manufacturer's printed information leaflet from inside the pack. It will give you more information about dexibuprofen, and it will also provide you with a full list of the side-effects which you could experience from taking it.
- You will be prescribed one 400 mg tablet to take either two or three times daily. Your doctor will tell you which is the right dose for you. Take the tablets exactly as your doctor tells you to.
- Take dexibuprofen with food; during a mealtime is ideal. This will help to protect your stomach from side-effects such as indigestion and stomach irritation. Most people find it helps to swallow the tablet with a drink of water.
- If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember (unless it is nearly time for your next dose, in which case take the next dose when it is due and leave out the forgotten dose). Do not take two doses together to make up for a missed dose.
