Tammy - I believe you can take up to 3200 mg a day. However, it's not clear why you husband is taking both. He must be taking the Vioxx because his stomach can't handle other anti-inflamatories. If so, he should just stick with the Vioxx. I hope you have read the heal pain book on this site and that he is trying the other treatments discussed e,g., icing, stretching, etc. Has he seen a podiatrist?
