It’s beneficial not to avoid the required and recommended dose to avoid unwanted adverse effects of this medication.
NSAIDs (Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs):

How do different analgesics work to treat pain?
Pain relief medications generally work on the pain receptors in the body, and the production of prostaglandin chemicals signals the brain about the pain.
Opioids work by inhibiting the pain receptors in the body, which leads to least to zero detection of pain by the brain, eventually leading to a feeling of relief. These medications do not treat the underlying cause of pain. Instead, give the brain the perception of no pain.
They are controlled substances and are only prescribed after a careful and thorough examination of a patient. They are likely to cause an addiction pattern if consumed more than the required amount. Consulting healthcare professionals is beneficial to get the proper diagnosis and treatment according to your medical requirements.
