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.

100mg bid after meal.

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.
