Relafen

( nabumetone )

 

500 mg oval-shaped, film-coated tablet

750 mg oval-shaped, film-coated tablet

 

Purpose

To reduce inflammation; to reduce pain.

 

Indications

For anti-inflammatory action and pain relief in patients with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

 

Dosage

Therapy is usually initiated at a dose of 1,000 mg daily, then adjusted, if needed, based on clinical response.

 

Side effects

This is a new drug, and it has been developed in part to minimize toxicity tot he stomach lining. Minor stomach ulcers are less common with this drug than with most other NSAIDs and occur approximately as often as with ibuprofen when misoprostol ( Cytotec ) is used to help protect the stomach. On the other hand, reduction in major ulcers and in stomach bleeding have not yet been shown, and experience with the drug is limited. Diarrhea is said to occur in 14% of people taking this drug, heartburn in 13%, and abdominal pain in 12%. These figures not very different from those of other NSAIDs.

 

Special hints

Do not exceed 2,000 mg per day. The lowest effective dose should be used if you are going to be taking the drug for a while.
