HOW TO USE: Take this medication by mouth as directed at the earliest sign a headache is starting. It will take longer to be effective if you wait until the headache becomes severe. For best results, lie down in a quiet, dark room for an hour or two after taking this to help relieve the headache. Take this medication exactly as directed. If necessary, the dose may be repeated every 30 minutes until the headache pain stops or a total of 6 tablets for adults or 3 tablets for children have been ingested, whichever comes first. Adults should not take more than 10 tablets or children more than 3 tablets in a one week period. If you require more medication than this, consult your doctor. Long-term use or excessive dosing may lead to dependence. If stomach upset occurs, this may be taken with food or milk.
