What If I Take an Overdose?

People who take too much diflunisal may have overdose symptoms that include but are not limited to:
 
  • Drowsiness
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Increased heart rate
  • Sweating
  • Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
  • Disorientation
  • Coma

How Should Diflunisal Be Stored?

Diflunisal should be stored at room temperature in a dry place and in an airtight container. As always, keep diflunisal and all medications out of the reach of children.
 

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your diflunisal as scheduled, take your next dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next scheduled dose, skip the missed one and continue with normal dosing. Never take a double dose!
