Who has pain in his hands and does not have feelings
Is this their prescription? It sounds like it's not and you should never EVER give someone a prescription medication that is not prescribed specifically to them. If it is their prescription then the doctor who gave it seems to think they are able to tolerate this medication and need to take it for the pain they are having in their hands. I'm not trying to sound offensive, it's just that a person who is 98 years old needs to be very careful what they take. A doctor needs to evaluate their health and also any other medications they are taking for possible drug interactions. The only thing you can give to anyone else is something over the counter, and even then at this age I would ask the pharmacist what the best medication would be for them and for this type of pain. There could be an underlying problem too that they need to see a doctor for. Hope this helps.
I have to go with the other answer and more so that this is a very selective anti-inflammatory medication that was taken off the market for a while do to heart problems now it is back out but I would be extra careful of it due to the problems they have had in the past. Talk to your Mom's doctor.
