Thanks for posting your query.

Strictly use Hifenac (Aceclofenac) as you have been prescribed by your physician. Never self-medicate or adjust your dosage yourself.

A typical dosage is twice a day, once in the morning and again later in the evening. Always medicate after a meal and wash down with a full glass of water.

For best results, try to always dose at the same time(s) each day.

If any side effect persist or worsen, contact your physician. Possible side effects may include:

Upset stomach, Nausea, Indigestion, Diarrhea, Heart burn, Dizziness, Mood changes,Difficulty sleeping.

If you suffer an allergic reaction, seek immediate medical attention. Possible symptoms to watch for include skin rashes, hives, swelling, chest pains, difficulty swallowing, and trouble breathing.

Other remedy for pain are ibuprofen, paracetamol, Ketorol DT.

Hope I have answered your query.

Wishing you good health.

Hifenac is quite a safe analgesic and can be taken thrice daily.But in some people thrashould for pain is less , in those individuals it can be taken four times a day also.Side effects appear only if you are taking these medicines for a long period of time, So need not to worry about this.Be good and take care.
