The intervals between the doses should be long enough. With strong pain, suppositories are used up to 4 times.

Gastrointestinal disorders (loss of appetite, vomiting, cramping in the stomach).
Interactions with other drugs
With stimulators of microsomal oxidation can increase the production of active hydroxylated metabolites. This can cause hepatotoxic effects even with a slight overdose.
