Taking it at the same time every day will help you remember to take it. The dose and duration of treatment will depend on what you are being treated for. Do not stop taking it until you have finished the complete course, even when you feel better. Lifestyle changes like a low-fat diet, exercise, and not smoking may help this medicine to work better.

Abdominal pain, indigestion, constipation, joint pain, and insomnia are some common side effects of this medicine. This medicine increases your risk of bleeding, so it is important to be careful while shaving, cutting nails, using sharp objects, or engaging in contact sports (e.g., football, wrestling). Let your doctor know if you notice yellowing of the skin, muscle pain, or dark urine.

Before taking this medicine, tell your doctor if you have liver or kidney disease or you are suffering from a bleeding disorder.
