Bextra dosage

Posted by Kathy in Ky on 4/25/04 at 16:29 (149518)

My PF has been flared up again for about 1 month & now I even have pain of the morning before getting out of bed. Also the bones in my right foot ache with or without walking, not just the arch area. We only have 5 more weeks of school & then I'm sure it will improve with rest. I have a prescription for Bextra 20mg. I am considering taking it at night & in the morning before work, currently take one per day. Does anyone think taking 40mg per day is too much?

Kathy, I've been taking Bextra 20mg for three weeks. Last couple of days started to notice side effects: Stomach, Heart, and ringing in ears. I'd stay at 20 if I were you. I have noticed any decrease in inflammation or pain yet (pf).
