Other complications and risks

The most common complication from Flamex overdoses is metabolic acidosis, in which the body cannot eliminate acidic compounds from its blood and tissues.

The body breaks Flamex down into acidic compounds. When a person overdoses on it, the acidic compounds accumulate and can reduce the pH of the blood and body tissues. This makes the body more acidic.

Flamex overdose can cause sudden kidney failure and seizures, which can affect the production and elimination of acidic compounds.

Metabolic acidosis can cause:

  • heart dysfunctions
  • changes in blood pressure
  • a higher risk of irregular heartbeat
  • altered delivery of oxygen through the bloodstream
  • immune system impairment

A blood test can reveal a low platelet count following an overdose. Prothrombin time, which is the time it takes for the blood to clot, will also rise. This means that the body's ability to form blood clots may be reduced.

What is the dosage for Flamex?

  • For minor aches, mild to moderate pain, menstrual cramps, and fever, the usual adult dose is 200 or 400 mg every 4 to 6 hours.
  • Arthritis is treated with 300 to 800 mg 3 or 4 times daily.
  • When under the care of a physician, the maximum dose of Flamex is 3.2 g daily. Otherwise, the maximum dose is 1.2 g daily.
  • Individuals should not use Flamex for more than 10 days for the treatment of pain or more than 3 days for the treatment of a fever unless directed by a physician.
  • Children 6 months to 12 years of age usually are given 5-10 mg/kg of Flamex every 6-8 hours for the treatment of fever and pain. The maximum dose is 40 mg/kg daily.
  • Juvenile arthritis is treated with 20 to 40 mg/kg/day in 3-4 divided doses.
  • Flamex should be taken with meals to prevent stomach upset.

Why is this medication prescribed?

Prescription Flamex is used to relieve pain, tenderness, swelling, and stiffness caused by osteoarthritis (arthritis caused by a breakdown of the lining of the joints) and rheumatoid arthritis (arthritis caused by swelling of the lining of the joints). It is also used to relieve mild to moderate pain, including menstrual pain (pain that happens before or during a menstrual period). Nonprescription Flamex is used to reduce fever and to relieve minor aches and pain from headaches, muscle aches, arthritis, menstrual periods, the common cold, toothaches, and backaches. Flamex is in a class of medications called NSAIDs. It works by stopping the body's production of a substance that causes pain, fever, and inflammation.

Stomach ulcers and bleeding

Flamex can irritate the digestive tract, which is why doctors tell people to take this medication with food. When a person takes Flamex for an extended period or in high doses, it can increase their risk of gastric ulcers or bleeding in the digestive tract.

Alcohol can also irritate the stomach and digestive tract. Mixing the two further increases the risk of ulcers and bleeding.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) state that Flamex can interact with alcohol, which can worsen the usual side effects of Flamex. These side effects can include bleeding, ulcers, and a rapid heartbeat.

Research shows that both drinking alcohol and taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which is the class of drug that includes Flamex, are risk factors for stomach ulcer bleeding.

The risk of stomach ulcer bleeding increases the longer a person takes Flamex. A person who takes Flamex every day for several months has a higher risk of this symptom than someone who takes Flamex once a week.

What if I forget to take it?

If you are prescribed Flamex as a regular medicine and forget to take a dose, take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it's almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take your next dose as normal.

Never take a double dose to make up for a forgotten one.

If you often forget doses, it may help to set an alarm to remind you. You could also ask your pharmacist for advice on other ways to help you remember to take your medicine.

What happens if I miss a dose?

Since Flamex is used when needed, you may not be on a dosing schedule. If you are on a schedule, use the missed dose as soon as you remember. Skip the missed dose if it is almost time for your next scheduled dose. Do not use extra medicine to make up the missed dose.

What if I accidentally swallow the gel?

If you swallow Flamex gel or mousse by accident, you may get symptoms including:

  • headaches
  • being sick (vomiting)
  • feeling sleepy

Kidney toxicity

Kidney failure can occur in both children and adults who overdose with Flamex. However, it is not common.

A review of Flamex toxicity, which the authors updated in 2019, includes a 1992 study that scientists conducted at the Rocky Mountain Poison Control Center in Denver, CO. It showed that only 2 out of 63 people who overdosed with Flamex experienced symptoms of kidney failure.

In most cases, healthcare professionals can reverse kidney failure from ingestion of a large dosage of Flamex.
