Take as a PRN. When I take this medication on a regular basis, I have frequent urine problems, and am unable to empty my bladder, thus I am up several times during the night. It does the job for me at this time, but I continue to try and reduce frequent inflation of my joints, to limit continued use of this drug. I am very concerned that frequent use will cause me to try and increase dosage to reduce pain. Therefore I use this medication when all other pain relieving solutions have failed.
