  • Take Arcoxia only when prescribed by your doctor. For osteoarthritis, the recommended dose is 60 mg once a day. For rheumatoid arthritis the recommended dose is 90 mg once a day. For ankylosing spondylitis the recommended dose is 90 mg once a day. For the relief of gout attacks the recommended dose is 120 mg once a day, which should only be used for the acute painful period. For the relief of chronic musculoskeletal pain the recommended dose is 60 mg once a day. Doses greater than those recommended for each condition have either not demonstrated additional efficacy or have not been studied. Therefore, the daily doses stated above for each condition should not be exceeded. If you have mild liver disease, you should not take more than 60 mg a day. If you have moderate liver disease, you should not take more than 60 mg every other day. Follow all directions given to you by your doctor carefully. They may differ from the information contained in this leaflet. If you do not understand the instructions on the box, ask your doctor or pharmacist for help. Arcoxia comes as tablets. When taking the tablets, swallow them with a glass of water. Do not halve the tablet. Take your Arcoxia at about the same time each day. Taking Arcoxia at the same time each day will have the best effect. It will also help you remember when to take the dose. It does not matter if you take Arcoxia before or after food. Do not use Arcoxia for longer than your doctor says. Your doctor will want to discuss your treatment from time to time. It is important that you use the lowest dose that controls your pain and you should not take Arcoxia for longer than necessary. This is because the risk of heart attacks and strokes might increase after prolonged treatment, especially with high doses. Depending on your condition, you may need to take Arcoxia for a few days or for a longer period. For osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis Arcoxia helps relieve your symptoms but it does not cure it. Continue taking Arcoxia for as long as your doctor prescribes. For the relief of gout attacks or other types of pain, Arcoxia is usually only needed for a few days. If you are not sure how long to take Arcoxia, talk to your doctor. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the dose you missed and take your next dose when you are meant to. Otherwise, take it as soon as you remember, and then go back to taking your tablet(s) as you would normally. If you are not sure whether to skip the dose, talk to your doctor or pharmacist. Do not take a double dose to make up for the dose that you missed. If you have trouble remembering to take your tablets, ask your pharmacist for some hints.
