Flurbiprofen is employed to alleviate pain, tenderness, swelling, and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. It belongs to a category of medications known as NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). The mechanism of action involves inhibiting the body’s production of a substance responsible for pain, fever, and inflammation.

Uses and Dosage

Follow your doctor’s instructions and take this medication orally, typically 2 to 4 times a day. Ingest the medication with a full glass of water (8 ounces or 240 milliliters) unless otherwise directed by your doctor.

Refrain from lying down for at least 10 minutes after taking the medication. If you experience stomach upset, consider taking it with food, milk, or an antacid.

The prescribed dosage is contingent on your medical condition and response to treatment. To minimize the risk of stomach bleeding and other side effects, take the medication at the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration possible. Do not increase your dose or extend the usage beyond the prescribed period. For chronic conditions like arthritis, adhere to the prescribed regimen. Discuss the potential risks and benefits with your doctor or pharmacist.

For specific conditions such as arthritis, it may take up to 2 weeks of consistent use before experiencing the full therapeutic effects.

If you are using this drug “as needed” (not on a regular schedule), remember that pain medications are most effective when taken at the onset of pain. Waiting until the pain intensifies may compromise the effectiveness of the medicine.
