When and How Do I Take It?

General considerations for when and how to take oxaprozin include the following:
 
  • The medication comes in a caplet form that is taken by mouth.
 
  • Your dosage should be taken with a glass of water. Taking it with milk or food may prevent stomach upset.
 
  • Oxaprozin may take several weeks to achieve its full potential.
 
  • 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.
 
  • Oxaprozin should be taken at the same time each day to maintain an even level in your blood.
 
  • For oxaprozin to work properly, you have to take it as prescribed. The medication will not work if you take it in a different way than how your healthcare provider recommends.
     

Dosing Information

The dose of oxaprozin your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • Your age and weight
  • The medical condition being treated
  • Other medical conditions you may have
  • Other medications you may be taking.
     
As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
