Dosage and administration
In diseases of the musculoskeletal system or diseases of the joints (rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, spondylitis), 10-20 mg per day is taken once for 1 or 2 doses.
In acute diseases of the musculoskeletal system, the first two days take 40 mg per day, and then within 1-2 weeks 20 mg per day.
With an acute attack of gout, take 40 mg for 3-5 days.
On the part of the digestive system: Nausea, loss of appetite, abdominal pain, flatulence, constipation or diarrhea, erosive and ulcerative lesions of the gastrointestinal tract, bleeding and perforation of the gastrointestinal tract; abnormal liver function, increased activity of liver transaminases; dry mouth, stomatitis.
Nervous System: Dizziness, headache, drowsiness, insomnia, depression, irritability, hallucinations, paresthesias, lethargy, mood changes.
On the part of the urinary system: Impaired renal function, interstitial nephritis, papillary necrosis, nephrotic syndrome.
From the side of blood-forming organs: and hemostasis systems Anemia, aplastic anemia, hemolytic anemia, leukopenia, eosinophilia, thrombocytopenia, decrease in hematocrit; thrombocytopenic purpura (Schönlein-Genoch disease).
Cardiovascular: Increased blood pressure, lower blood pressure, rarely - heartbeat, shortness of breath.
Other: Edema of the legs and feet, increased sweating, increased concentration of urea, hypoglycemia.
Allergic reactions: Skin rash, itching, swelling of the face, larynx, bronchospasm, malignant exudative erythema (Stevens-Johnson syndrome), shock, photosensitization; vasculitis, serum sickness.
The simultaneous use of several nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs increases the risk of side effects, while the therapeutic effect does not improve.
Patients with impaired function of the gastrointestinal tract, after extensive surgical interventions, in the elderly, patients with bronchial asthma and chronic bronchospastic diseases in history, it is necessary to monitor the cellular composition of the blood, renal function and liver.
If a peptic ulcer or bleeding from the gastrointestinal tract occurs, treatment should be stopped.
