When and How Do I Take Ansaid?

Some general considerations for when and how to take the medication include:
  • Ansaid comes in a tablet form. It is taken two, three, or four times a day based on your healthcare provider's recommendation.
  • To avoid an upset stomach, take your dosage with food or milk.
  • For Ansaid to work properly, you have to take it as prescribed. It will not work if you stop taking it.
  • Try to take Ansaid at the same time each day to maintain even levels of the medicine in the blood.
  • It is important to take the lowest effective dose for the least amount of time in order to treat your condition. This will decrease the chances of developing serious side effects.

Dosing Information

The dosage that your healthcare provider recommends will vary depending on a number of factors, including:
  • The medical condition being treated
  • Other medical conditions you may have
  • Other medications you may be currently taking.
As always, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.

Side Effects

As with any medicine, there are possible side effects with Ansaid. Yet, not everyone who takes the medication will experience side effects. When people do develop side effects, in many cases they are minor, meaning that they require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider.
Common Ansaid side effects include, but are not limited to:
Less common but serious side effects may include:
  • Cardiovascular problems, including a heart attack or stroke
  • Stomach or intestinal problems, including bleeding, an ulcer, or a hole (known as a perforation)
  • Liver damage
  • Kidney problems, including kidney failure
  • Rapid weight gain
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Vision problems
  • Allergic reactions
  • Unexplained rash.
These possible side effects are shared with most NSAIDs and can lead to life-threatening complications or even loss of life.
