Anti-Inflammatory Overview

Anti-inflammatory, or antiinflammatory, refers to the property of a substance or treatment that reduces inflammation or swelling. Anti-inflammatory drugs make up about half of analgesics, remedying pain by reducing inflammation as opposed to opioids, which affect the central nervous system to block pain signaling to the brain.

Is this a substitute for the expensive ASACOL? ## Yes, Pentasa contains the same active ingredient, Mesalamine. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, stomach pain, blurred vision, dizziness, anxiety, and back pain. Is there anything else I can help with?

diclofenac and sulfa allergy
3 Replies RSS
Is there sulfa in diclofenac and will it have an effect on my sulfa allergies? ## I also have a sulfa allergy and have taken diclofenac with no problem. ## @Nancy, Just to confirm, Diclofenac Sodium is not a sulfa-based drug; but rather a 'sodium salt'. So my understanding is in line with Karen's (post #1) in that you shouldn't experience any problems relating to a sulfa allergy. As to the inactive ingredients, one would have to know the imprint on the pill to determine if other binders/fillers could potentially be a culprit as well. However, if you do have a known allergy, I would just be sure to communicate this to the doctor and/or pharmacist whenever you go to get a new prescription... that way you can be certain that whatever it is you're taking is safe. Hope th...

Diclofenac Sodium 75mg
4 Replies RSS
I just took 2 diclofenac sodium 75mg at the same time. Since only one doesn't work at all. Could that hurt me? ## Hello, Turquita20! How are you? Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's used to treat pain, fever and swelling. This medication may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach irritation. It also carries some risks, such as causing stomach damage, increasing the risk of bleeding, causing liver damage or liver failure, so it is very important that you not take more than your doctor has prescribed. Doubling up once likely isn't very risky, but only your doctor can say for sure. It would be best to inform them, as they may want to run some blood work to check your liver function and clotting factor. Is there anything else I can ...

I have been prescribed prednisone 20mg. And am directed to take 2 tablets daily for 5 days. I am male and weigh 158lbs. Do I take 1 tablet every 12 hours or do I take the 2 tablets together each day as one? ## Although I would have your doctor confirm this - In most cases, the term "twice a day" usually refers to having one pill every 12 hours (morning and evening). I believe it is mainly to help keep the medication in your system for as long as possible, throughout the course of 24hrs. Are they extended-release capsules?

BETAMETASONA & CLOTRIMAZOL & GENTAMICINA ## Have been using Barmicil Compuesto Cream which I purchased at Walmart in Acapulco....Is this a safe cream and, if so, where can it be purchased in the USA???? ## I have been using Barmicil for several skin problems such as sores, pimples, rosacea, ringworms, and gotten excellent healing of ailments, with no skin scarring.
