I just take it before I eat a meal. I take it for headaches and it works like ibuprofen. Works a little faster, too. lol

Take WITH food.  It can be really hard on the stomach.  Think about it... what otc pain med would require you to go without food for 24 hrs?  If you take 2, definately eat something with it.

I wonder if the label meant 2-4 hours.... either way, I'd say try to take it with food and if it hurts your tummy, try next time on an empty stomach

Take with food, according to Epocrates (an app that doctors and nurses use).

That's funny about the label!

Yea ive never seen a typo on a label like that before. But my drs reccomendation was to take 24-48 hours before i expect to feel pain and it will help prevent the inflamation. Maybe that was suppossed to be printwd? I dont know. Im mobile and my typing id irritating.sorry
