Take Medications With a Meal

Take Medications With a Meal

This blog post is part of a series about dealing with the side effects of managing your knee osteoarthritis with corticosteroids.

Ulcers and gastrointestinal bleeding can become more prevalent when taking corticosteroids.  This is especially true if you take steroids with non-steroidal-anti-inflammatory medications.

Always make sure that medications of this nature are taken after a full meal or with antacids.  If you experience heartburn talk to your doctor about prescribing an acid-reducing medication.
