Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication.

Lodine XL Overview
Etodolac is used to relieve pain from various conditions. It also reduces pain, swelling, and joint stiffness from arthritis. Lodine XL is known as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It works by blocking your body's production of certain natural substances that cause inflammation. If you are treating a chronic condition such as arthritis, ask your doctor about non-drug treatments and/or using other medications to treat your pain.
Lodine XL Warnings
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (including etodolac) may rarely increase the risk of a heart attack or stroke. This effect can happen at any time while taking Lodine XL but is more likely if you take it for a long time. The risk may be greater in older adults or if you have heart disease or increased risk for heart disease (for example, due to smoking, family history of heart disease, or conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes). Do not take Lodine XL right before or after heart bypass surgery (CABG). Also, Lodine XL may rarely cause serious (rarely fatal) bleeding from the stomach or intestines. This effect can occur without warning symptoms at any time while taking Lodine XL. Older adults may be at higher risk for this effect.stomach/abdominal pain that doesn't go away, black/tarry stools, vomit that looks like coffee grounds, chest/jaw/left arm pain, shortness of breath, unusual sweating, confusion, weakness on one side of the body, trouble speaking, sudden vision changes. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about the benefits and risks of taking Lodine XL.
How to Use Lodine XL
Read the Medication Guide provided by your pharmacist before you start taking etodolac and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Take Lodine XL by mouth as directed by your doctor, usually 2 to 4 times a day. Take Lodine XL with a full glass of water (8 ounces/240 milliliters) unless your doctor directs you otherwise. Do not lie down for at least 10 minutes after taking Lodine XL. If stomach upset occurs while taking Lodine XL, take it with food, milk, or an antacid. The Dosage of Lodine XL is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. To reduce your risk of stomach bleeding and other side effects, take Lodine XL at the lowest effective dose for the shortest possible time. Do not increase your dose or use Lodine XL more often or for longer than prescribed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor or pharmacist. For certain conditions (such as arthritis), it may take up to 2 weeks of taking Lodine XL regularly until you get the full benefit. If you are taking Lodine XL "as needed" (not on a regular schedule), remember that pain medications work best if they are used as the first signs of pain occur. If you wait until the pain has worsened, the medication may not work as well. Tell your doctor if your condition gets worse.
