Follow the instructions carefully provided by your doctor. You should check with your doctor if you have any doubts about the drug's usage. Stick to the dosing regimen provided by your doctor. Do not take more or less than the recommended amount. Your doctor will recommend the lowest dose that controls your pain, and you should not take a Nucoxia tablet for longer than necessary. This is because the risk of heart attacks and stroke might be increased after a longer-term treatment, especially after higher doses.
Nucoxia is for oral use. It can be taken with or without food. The maximum recommended dose is 90 mg once a day. If you have liver problems, consult your doctor.
