NSAID’s are commonly used to treat knee osteoarthritis.  However these medications have side effects.  Gastrointestinal problems rank as a leading problem associated with the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

Symptoms can include but are mot limited to:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Decreased Appetite
  • Heartburn
  • Ulcers
  • Stomach Ache

Notify your doctor if you experience any of these side effects.  Also ask about knee braces to treat your osteoarthritis of the knee.  Knee braces don’t cause ulcers.
