More Information

Nabumetone is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that can be used to treat inflammation and pain caused by arthritis and other conditions that affect the joints.

Nabumetone is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication, also known as an NSAID. These medications work by reducing the production of prostaglandins in the body which cause the symptoms of pain, inflammation and swelling. 

You should only ever use your medication when you have been told to by your healthcare provider. Usually, this medication should be taken whilst you are eating a meal, or just after you have eaten a meal, around the time you go to bed.

You should only ever use the dosage of Nabumetone that has been prescribed to you by your healthcare provider. The usual dosage for an adult up to the age of 65 is two tablets taken before bed. For the elderly, it is recommended that they only take one tablet. 

Nabumetone is a suitable medication for adults who are needing relief from pain caused by arthritis or other musculoskeletal conditions.
