If you take this medication on a “as needed” basis (rather than on a regular basis), keep in mind that pain medications work best when taken as soon as the first signs of pain appear. The medicine may not work as well if you wait until the pain has significantly worsened.

It is possible to experience upset stomach, gas, constipation, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, headache, drowsiness, or dizziness. Notify your doctor or pharmacist right away if any of these effects persist or worsen.

The use of alcohol and tobacco on a regular basis, especially when combined with this medication, may increase your risk of stomach bleeding. Limit your alcohol consumption and quit smoking.

However, if your doctor has prescribed low-dose aspirin to prevent a heart attack or stroke (usually 81-162 milligrams per day), you should continue to take it unless your doctor instructs you otherwise.
