Nimesulide medication is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, prescribed for painful inflammatory conditions, back pain, dysmenorrhea, postoperative pain, osteoarthritis, and fever.

Nimesulide Dosage:
Adults: 100 mg twice daily
Children (< 12 years): 5mg/kg of body weight in 2 or 3 divided doses.

The minimum effective dose should be used for the shortest duration to reduce the undesirable effects.

The maximum duration of a treatment course with Nimesulide is 15 days.

Nimesulide 100mg Tablets/granules should be used for the shortest possible duration, as required by the clinical situation.

Adults:
100mg bid after meal.

Elderly:
In elderly patients there is no need to reduce the daily dosage

Children (< 12 years):
Nimesulide 100mg Tablets/granules is contraindicated in these patients.

Adolescents (from 12 to 18 years):
on the basis of the kinetic profile in adults and on the pharmacodynamic characteristics of nimesulide, no dosage adjustment in these patients is necessary.
