Clonafec 100 mg Diclofenaco

Can Volfenac and/or Clonafec be used for arthritis? If not, what do you recommend? thank you ## @busdriver, Diclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication that reportedly works by stopping the production of a substance in the body that causes inflammation/pain... So in that respect it should help with certain conditions such as arthritis. NOTE: Just to confirm, clonafec and volfenac are simply other brand names for Diclofenac. Is there anything else I can help you with? ## Is it also good for heel spur pain and swelling in the foot? ## Dose Diclofenaco work? Where do I get it? ## I cannot say which foreign brands of Diclofenac work as well as the domestic ones, but if the ingredients are of a sufficient quality then they should be effective at treating pain and inflammation....

side effects of indomethacin

I am trying to find out the side effects of the medicine indomethacin. ## SERAM URIC ACID ## hurts to swallow=not a sore throat-but painful to swallow ## This medication is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, it is very potent, so the FDA warns that it can be very harsh on the stomach. It may also cause other side effects, such as nausea, headache, and increased risk of bleeding. Are there any markings on the medication you have received? ## Hi, I just started on indomethacin & am experiencing nausea, indigestion & an upset stomach. Do these disappear or do you have to put up with them?

Flexim plus tablet uses

Is it a good treatment for arthritis pain? ## I am feeling back pain and body so I need pain medication for my RA . ## According to a related thread about Flexim Plus, this medicine contains "Paracetamol, Diclofenac and Methocarbamol, so it is a muscle relaxant and pain reliever." ## Hello Corline young McKnight, Reportedly flexim contains Methocarbamol and acetaminophen. The methocarbamol acts as a muscle relaxant and a central nervous system depressant while the acetaminophen acts as an anti-inflammatory and pain killer. It is important to understand that while this medicine can help relieve the pain of your arthritis it will not in any way aid in curing the underlying problems. I wasn't able to find the drug schedule of this medicine in Jamaica and thus I can only recomme...

um thc pill

THC pill for Shingles treatment ## I have shingles fibromyalgia arthritis I need something for my pain that was told that um pill works ## The US National Institute of Health has a multitude of articles written that discuss the therapeutic benefits of Cannabinoids (THC/CBD) being used for postherpetic neuralgia (shingles). Cannabinoids are reportedly beneficial in treating neuroinflammation (nerve pain) as well as the stress associated with it. Cannabinoids have also been classified in clinical studies as being "neuroprotective agents". If you run a Google search for "thc for shingles nih" as well as "cbd for shingles nih", you'll find some intriguing studies that outline the benefits of Cannabis for such purposes. The only issue I see with a pharmaceutically...

Hate this kind of company, a bad sell job to people really looking for relief. Get the best anti-oxidant you can afford and deal with the inflammation. There is relief out there. ## Are you referring to the product ArthRID-It? It is a natural supplement, which means it is not actually proven to help with anything, it contains: Celadrin, Trolamine, Dimethicone, Chondroitin, MSM, Glucoasmine, Aloe Vera and Emu Oil.

Watson 853 vs M367

Hello I been on watson 853 for many years from walgreens but this past few months I notice they don’t work at all just sleepy? And I went to refill at Walgreens this month and They changed to m367 and they don’t help my pain at all. More sleepy and no relief from my pain. Anybody has any ideas? I don’t think I can return them. I use them for Headaches, Pituitary Brain Tumor, Lupus, and severe arthritis. And a few other health issues!! ## No, in most cases you can't return them, due the risk of tampering, once they leave the pharmacy, although there are some that will make exceptions to help a patient. Drowsiness can be a normal side effect of this medication, according to FDA reports, other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and consti...

Artridol from Mexico.

I take one about every week, can I safely increase the frequency? It seems to be less effective fthan when I started using it. ## Artridol contains the active ingredient Glucosamine, which is a supplement claimed to help with joint health. As such, it is not a medication and is not actually proven to help with anything. That said, most of these supplements are taken daily, rather than weekly. So, if it was helping you, there is no reason you cannot take it more often. Just don't overdo it, because everything can be dangerous if you take too much. Are there any questions or comments? ## I need artridol 250 mg. How i can buy it? ## Does artridol worsen osteoporrosis, my doctor here in Cancun say's it does ## this is incorrect. it contains betamethasone, indomethacin and methacarbo...

meloxicam expiration date of pills sold in 2014.

I'd bought Meloxicam 7.5mg on Dec.15-2014. I would like to know if there is no harm to use it now? Thanks for any help. My concern is to know the expiration date of pills sold in 2014. ## Sorry to not reply from since because I'm not in good shape. I'm not in good shape and I'm in hospitals and laboratories every day of the week. I saw my family doctor and prescriber of Meloxicam. He preferred to give me another prescription without explanation. My advice is to see the doctor. Thank you for your help and sorry for not being useful to others. DEDE ## Hello Dede, Sorry tell you but I don't have the answer to your question but I can provide you with some information on how you can get the answer.

Lingering side effects of methylprednisolone

I ended up at the ER thinking I was having a heart attack. So I didn't take the last two pills of my dose pack. It has now been a full week after my last dose, and I am still struggling with insomnia, nausea, dizziness, muscle weakness, loss of appetite, heart pounding and high bp. I feel better in the evenings, but then it starts over in the mornings. Does anyone know how much longer these side effects will last? Does anyone have a similar story? ## Has anyone else have this problem with lingering side effects? Can you share how long? ## Hi Fed Up - I have had almost the exact symptoms as you except I also had insomnia while taking the pack. (Almost no sleep for 3-4 days.) I finished it though. I had my last one 3 days ago and since then I have gotten a bit more sleep, but now have...

Pain on enbrel getting worse

I've been on Enbrel for a number of months now and have found it useful but my joint pain is getting worse and returning to levels of pain I had before using it. I am on 50ml autoinjection 1x weekly and was wondering if others have had the same problem and if they increased their injections to 2x weekly or not? ## Hello Cas, It could possibly be that your condition is worsening or that you are simply forming a tolerance to the medication. This sort of thing is hard enough for medical professionals to properly diagnose and far harder for those of us on the internet who wish to help you, I suggest that you schedule a visit with your primary care doctor and discuss this matter with them as they will be best equipped to help you manage the situation properly. Best of luck. ## Thank you ...

Fasting the day before Enbrel

Has anyone tried fasting on the day before taking Enbrel? I heard it works for Methotrexate but I was wondering if it worked to lessen the nausea after injecting Enbrel? ## Hello Mary, I've looked all over but I can't seem to find anywhere that supports this idea, not even from forums dedicated to discussing Enbrel. I was able to find a forum on the "livingwithpsoriaticarthritis" organization website that discusses the matter of nausea but most users state that this only happens for the first few shots and subsides within a few hours. In regards to your specific question of fasting before the injection I would advise you discuss this matter with your doctor first to ensure that it is safe and will have no negative effects on you. If your doctor gives you the go ahead I s...

Otezla and food aversions

Looking for answers, I have been on Otezla for 5 months with wonderful results. Had Plaques on 15% of my body and now down to 1%. But I have had significant weight loss, and difficulty eating. Nothing sounds good and if I try to force myself to eat, I start gagging and get the feeling I'm going to vomit. The weight loss was welcomed, but now starting to worry as it has not slowed down, and the difficulty eating has been increasing. Anyone out there with the same experiences? ## Hello Tina, According to the NIH Otezla is known to cause all of the symptoms you are experiencing. Below is a list of the most common side effects of Otezla sourced from the NIH. Common Side Effects: Immune system disorders: Hypersensitivity Investigations: Weight decrease Gastrointestinal Disorders: Frequ...

if i take 15 mg of meloxicam daily can 10 prednisone

I take 15 mg of meloxicam daily for degenerative arthritis. I also have been prescribed 20 mg of prednisone for gout. Can I take the prednisone now if I took my meloxicM 4-1/2 hrs ago? ## Hello, Kanakagurl! How are you? Actually, these medications tend to increase the toxicity of each other and increase the risk of gastrointestinal ulceration. Thus, before mixing them, it would be best to check with your doctor to make sure that it is safe for you to do so. You may need to go off the Meloxicam, while on the Prednisone. Prednisone is a steroid that may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, fluid retention, mood swings, weight changes and elevated blood pressure. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I just took my last dose of medrol this morning. It has done nothing for my...
