Brief Answer:
Naproxen and Ibuprofen would be better alternatives!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for getting back to me.

I will recommend that you switch this medication back to Naproxen or Ibuprofen. As with all NSAIDs, you could have stomach irritation and bleeding. If you have any discomfort in the abdomen, report promptly for review and guidance.

Also, do you take dolobid daily or this is only when you are in pains?

I hope this helps and look forward hearing from you!
