Now that I am taking pradaxa, I can no longer take arthrotec for arthritis. Is there any other arthritis medication I can take?

Hello, Denis! How are you?

You should be able to take medications that don't cause blood thinning, which the Diclofenac in the Arthrotec does. (Diclofenac NDC code for more information 0054-4223.) The FDA lists the typical side effects of Pradaxa as possibly including nausea, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and easy bruising. (Pradaxa 0597-0149).

What other medications have you tried?

Re: Verwon (# 1)

I have taken no other medication for arthritis except hydrocodone, 1 a day. This does not do much except for a short time and does contain acetaminophen which can cause liver problems. Since the arthritis is long term (30+ yrs so far, I am 62) I am looking for options. I see my PCP next week and prefer to go with some information. Thank You, Denis
