Try one first. If it doesnt relieve all the pain, then you can try two on the next dose. It is better to take the least amount of drug to get relief. Also be sure to take this drug with food in your stomach! This medicine can tear up the stomach lining if you dont take it with food.

Yeah ~ I took it first thing in the morning
without any food and my stomach got a
little queasy. But then I phoned my local
pharmacist who said eat a slice of toast
which calmed it right down. The pain also
subsided faster than with Advil (which was
not very effective).

Thanks for your good help!
