Arthrexin Overview

Indometacin, also known as indomethacin, is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) commonly used as a prescription medication to reduce fever, pain, stiffness, and swelling from inflammation. It works by inhibiting the production of prostaglandins, endogenous signaling molecules known to cause these symptoms. It does this by inhibiting cyclooxygenase, an enzyme that catalyzes the production of prostaglandins.[1][2] It was patented in 1961 and approved fo...

Arthrexin and dizziness

Hi, my husband has been taking Arthrexin for gout in his feet for about a year now. He only takes it when the gout flares up however everytime he takes it it causes him severe dizziness. The dizzy spells incapacitate him and the only thing he can do is go to bed. One doctor said this was normal and another said it wasn't and I can't find any reviews where other people have experienced the same. What's your thoughts? ## Arthrexin contains the active ingredient Indemethacin, which is a potent nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory used to treat pain, fever, and swelling. Dizziness, drowsiness, stomach irritation, and headache can be normal side effects of it as documented by MedlinePlus. However, it is unusual for it to be that severe. Is he on any other medications? Has he had the ca...

Arthrexin used with Prednisone

I Have a liver complaint which is under control at the moment with the help of Prednisone. I have very bad joint pains can I use Arthrexin with these steroids. ## You should not take them together, unless your doctor approves. While they are in different medication classes, they do some of the same things, such as relieving pain, and swelling. The NIH also warns that they may cause an increased risk of bleeding, stomach pain, headache, acne, and fluid retention. What is your liver issue? Arthrexin is not a steroid, it contains Indomethacin, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory.

Arthrexin & Panamor

I have fibromyalgia and suffer extreme pain in various parts of my body. For the last four months, pain in my hip has almost debilitated me. I use as little pain medication as possible as I hate filling my body with chemicals. I have been using panamor along with natural pain relief methods but would like to know if I can take Arthrexin & Panamor 100mg together? ## No, these are both non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, so that would be doubling up on them, which can increase your risk of liver damage, liver failure, stomach irritation, and stomach ulceration, according to the NIH. It would be best to stick with one, or the other, as instructed by your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with?

Remedy to attacks

Hi.have been getting gout attacks and got bursites on my elbows very bad tried various drugs only artherexin worked.bursitis has gone and no more gout attacks.have been using for three years with no problems or side effect ## Hello, Jono! How are you doing? I'm glad that it's working for you. This medication is listed as containing the active ingredient Indomethacin, which can be very harsh on the stomach, so I strongly urge you to make sure you don't take it on an empty stomach. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and increased risk of bleeding. Long-term use could also cause fluid retention and elevated blood pressure, so those are things you should be aware of. Is there anything else I can help with?

Arthrexin versus Coxflam side effects

I used to take 25mg Arthrexin daily after supper to control pain caused by rheumatoid arthritis. After a few years, it began to affect my stomach. So, my doctor prescribed 15mg Coxflam instead. When I read about posible side effects of Coxflam, I found it to be the same as Arthrexin. Are there any need to worry before experiencing any side effects? ## Hello, Dirk! How are you? You are correct, they are both nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories that carry the same risks. And yes, because with long-term use you could experience stomach damage or liver damage, but you may not actually experience any side effects that lets you know it's happened. Have you found yourself to be bruising easier than usual? Any nausea or stomach pain? ## Can my husband use coxflam for arhritis in he's arms ...
