I am a member of the forum. It is most unusual not to have the instructions for use on the front of the pill packet. My advice would be to get in touch with the medic that prescribed them to you. No one else can give you that information.

helpline_team Posts: 2,938Dear Margaret,
Thank you for your enquiry to Helplines. As the other forum members have said this is an area where the prescribing doctor must advise you. Normally it would have been on the prescription which went to the pharmacist, so checking with them is a good first step often.
I don't know if you have seen any of our information on self managing arthritis but you can download it from
Hope that's helpful
