NSAIDs

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are drugs that relieve pain and reduce fever.  In higher doses these drugs can have anti-inflammatory effects.

The most common members of this drug group are ibuprofen, aspirin, and naproxen.

NSAIDs are often times indicated for treating chronic and acute conditions that present with inflammation and pain.  They are commonly prescribed and recommended as a treatment option for knee osteoarthritis.

This series of blog posts is about the side effects associated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
