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.

diclofenac and sulfa allergy

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...

Naproxen G 32 500

off white, oblong, G 32 on one side, 500 on the other ## what is a pale peach oblong tablet with 500 on one side and G 32 with an indentation between the G and the 32 on the other? Is it Naproxen? ## Yes, it is 500mgs of Naproxen, a generic for Naprosyn. ## I want to know if the naproxen pill marked G 32 500 contains penicillin? I'm highly allergic to penicillin and don't want to take it for my fibromyalgia if it has penicillin in it.

is diclofenac a muscle relaxer

The lower sphincter of my oesophagus won't relax to let food pass (achalasia?). My doctor prescribed nitrate (isordil), which works sometime but it gives me such a headache that i gave up on it. Is there a reliable muscle relaxant that i could try? Reading up about diclofenac puts me off: the risks are not trivial, especially at my age (82), though it has helped me for other complaints. Thanks. ## No, Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that is most commonly used to treat pain, fever, and swelling. The NIH lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, easy bruising, and increased risk of bleeding. There are many reliable muscle relaxants that you could try, but it really depends on your overall health, any other medications you may be t...

Diclofenac Sodium 75mg

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 ...

Can you take naproxen with a muscle relaxer

Can I take tizanidine and naproxen at the same time? It's my muscle relaxer and the naproxen is for my menstrual cramps. ## I didn't find any interactions listed, but it is always best to double check to be safe. However, I can tell you that they are often prescribed together to treat pain, and muscle spasms. The FDA warns that you may experience more severe side effects than usual, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, headache, dry mouth, and stomach upset. The Naproxen can also cause an increased risk of bleeding. Are these the only medications you take?

budesonide corti-steriod 3 mg.

I have been on this medication for (off and on) for abt. 4 years (estimate) It is also listed as ENTOCORT. It is prescribed by my Gastroenterologist Doctor the 1st time in Sept.2012 - then again in 2017 after another colonopscopy showing that my colitis (flammable) had returned. It is very expensive, and due to many problems with my diverticulitis and colitis I have to continue using it as a last resort to my colon problems. I also have an aneursym located in my head that I got when I fell on cement on 2/7/2013. I was taking the cortisteriod Entocort when this happened ( 1 per day). I came close to dying due to severe head trauma after a drop in blood pressure and the fall. I am still trying to deal with these problems day by day. I deal with every day stress due to having a husband tha...

Prednisone high doses for four days and no taper 1 week later - help

I had an allergic reaction to Bactrim and was given prednisone - I took 60 mg, 80 mg, 60 mg, and then 40 mg. On the third day of prednisone I went to the ER because I woke up shaking uncontrollably. The last dose was a week ago today. Even since stopping, I have been feeling very shaky, weak, easily out of breath, tense/anxious, not sleeping properly, extremely emotional, and many other uncomfortable symptoms. I went to a doctor a couple of days ago and she basically said to give it time. I'm happy to do that but I'm also concerned about the (stupidly) large doses of prednisone I was given, and quitting abruptly even though it was only four days. Is it likely the symptoms I'm experiencing are a result of prednisone? I just got bloodwork, U/A, EKG results and nothing seems to...
