Drug Description


Feldene Flash is a prescription medicine indicated for a range of conditions necessitating anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects, including: 

  • Rheumatoid arthritis 
  • Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis 
  • Osteoarthritis  
  • Ankylosing spondylitis 
  • Acute musculoskeletal disorders 
  • Acute gout 
  • Postoperative and post-traumatic pain 
  • Primary dysmenorrhea in patients aged 12 and above

Classified as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), Feldene Flash functions by suppressing the synthesis of a substance that induces pain, fever, and inflammation in the body. 

Uses and Dosage 

Read the medication guide and patient information leaflet that come with Feldene Flash before starting the treatment or obtaining a prescription refill. If you have concerns or need more information, do not hesitate to contact your pharmacist or doctor. 

Feldene Flash is a fast-dissolving tablet that can be taken with water or placed on the tongue to disperse before swallowing with saliva or water as a suspension. 

The appropriate dosage and duration of treatment with this medication are determined individually, considering the patient’s medical condition, response, and in pediatric cases weight. 

Typically, Feldene Flash is taken once a day with or after a meal as prescribed by the doctor. 

To achieve the best outcomes, adhere to the prescribed instructions when taking Feldene Flash. Do not modify the recommended dose, frequency, or duration of use without consulting your doctor. 

Side Effects 

Feldene Flash is generally well-tolerated, with gastrointestinal symptoms being the most frequently encountered side effects. However, these symptoms typically do not disrupt the treatment process.

This list does not cover all side effects of Feldene Flash. Report to your doctor if you observe any other effects. 


Before starting treatment with Feldene Flash, inform your doctor if you have any known hypersensitivities, particularly to piroxicam, aspirin, other NSAIDs, or to any of the inactive ingredients of this fast-dissolving tablet. 

Inform your doctor of your medical history prior to taking Feldene Flash, as this medication is not recommended for:

  • Those with active peptic ulcers 
  • Patients experiencing asthma, nasal polyps, angioedema, or urticaria symptoms triggered by aspirin or other NSAIDs

Disclose to your doctor your medication regimen, including prescription and over-the-counter remedies, vitamins, and herbal supplements, to minimize the risk of drug interaction with Feldene Flash. 

Refrain from taking Feldene Flash along with other systemic non-aspirin NSAIDs, including cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2) inhibitors, as such concomitant use may elevate the risk of gastrointestinal ulcers and bleeding.
