NSAID Side Effects – Serious Concerns

November 15, 2010
Attention!

Attention!

NSAIDs are commonly prescribed and recommended to treat the pain associated with osteoarthritis of the knee.  This series of posts is about the side effects associated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.  Some of the problems that these medications cause are very serious and can adversely effect your health much worse than the pain in your knee caused by OA.

  • Liver Failure
  • Kidney Failure
  • Heart Attack
  • Stroke
  • Death

NSAID use has been linked to all of the above conditions.  It is important you talk to your doctor and know all of the risks associated with any medication you take.  With NSAIDs, know all of the precautions you must take to safely treat your knee pain.

Think about a conservative treatment option for your knee OA.  Nobody has ever died from wearing a knee brace.
