Bextra

Posted by Robert K on 7/19/04 at 15:04 (155852)

I am taking 20mg. of Bextra a day for the past 2 weeks. It seems to help. How much can I take and for how long?

Robert:
Bextra is designed to be gentle on the stomach so it can be taken for prolonged periods of time. I would consider it an 'adjunctive' treatment in that it will not lead to a cure but will make things more tolerable. If taken too long, it may lose effectiveness.
