Zipsor Dosage: An Introduction

There is only one standard dose of Zipsor™ (diclofenac potassium), regardless of your age or weight. As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.

Zipsor Dosing for Pain

The standard recommended Zipsor dosage for mild to moderate acute (short-term) pain is 25 mg four times daily. As with all NSAIDs, it is recommended that people take Zipsor at the lowest effective dosage for the shortest period of time, to reduce the risk of serious Zipsor side effects.

General Information on Dosing With Zipsor

Some considerations for people taking Zipsor include the following:
  • Zipsor comes in liquid-filled capsules and is usually taken by mouth four times a day.
  • It is usually recommended to take NSAIDs (like Zipsor) with food to help prevent stomach upset. However, food may cause this medication to work more slowly.
