I'll tell!: Usaully two 750mg tableets together, or one two times a day. Relafen (nabumetone) is inactive in your stomach, and is converted to its active form by the liver. Therefore it can be once daily and great for arthritis or any chronic pain. But not good for an acute headache. Nonethless, take with fluids. If you decide to take it once daily, supper time is best. It will be around at night and am!
