Feldene is indicated for relief of the signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Feldene is an NSAID. NSAIDs treat the symptoms of pain and inflammation. They do not treat the disease that causes those symptoms.
Use Feldene as directed by your doctor.
- Take Feldene by mouth. It may be taken with food if it upsets your stomach. This may not lower the risk of stomach or bowel problems (eg, bleeding, ulcers). Talk with your doctor if you have persistent stomach upset.
- Take Feldene with a full glass of water (8 oz/240 mL) as directed by your doctor.
- If you miss a dose of Feldene and you are taking it regularly, take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose. Go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.
Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Feldene.
Store Feldene at room temperature, between 59 and 86 degrees F (15 and 30 degrees C). Store away from heat, moisture, and light. Do not store in the bathroom. Keep Feldene out of the reach of children and away from pets.
