Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: I need to take this with toast, and then control the nausea with omeprazole (prilosec). However, it is very useful. I should have realized it would help with my joint pain as well (it is an NSAID, like Aleve or Ibuprofen), but that was an unexpected side-benefit.

Advice & Tips: It really helped me sleep. I would sleep longer, and have a better night sleep than I have had in years. Strange for a pain medication similar to ibuprofen, but I speculate that it may have something to do with an underlying COX inhibitor problem.
