When taking medications to relieve toothache, headache, back pain or similar conditions, there is a high chance that you use NSAIDs or anti-inflammatory drugs. They are often used to reduce swelling and redness, relieve pain and treat fever.
For example, this group of medications includes Ibuprofen, Aspirin, Celecoxib, Naproxen, etc.
Anti-inflammatories are taken by patients to treat the symptoms of a number of medical conditions, including arthritis, headaches, period cramps, toothache, muscle strains, neck or back pain and so on.
They are available in different forms, such as capsules, standard tablets, creams, injections, liquids, sprays and others. Some of the most popular NSAIDs bought and used by consumers include aspirin, diclofenac, meloxicam and many others.
Before taking any anti-inflammatory medicine, it’s advisable to discuss possible risks with doctors.
These drugs are associated with some common side effects, including indigestion, nausea and others.
The good news is that serious side effects are very rare, and they include stomach bleeding and kidney complications. Some NSAIDs may also trigger asthma in patients.
