In brief: As short as possible

Assuming you have no medical problems, for example congestive heart failure, gastritis, or kidney disease, then they should be safe to take in the short term. Nonetheless with prolonged exposure these medicines might cause problems such as kidney failure or stomach ulcers and can even lead to problems such as hypertension.
There's no consensus on how much is too much - stay in close contact w/ md.
