Health Tip: Taking Anti-Inflammatory Drugs


HealthDay News
Updated: Oct 23rd 2019

(HealthDay News) -- Pain relievers like ibuprofen, naproxen and celecoxib are popular anti-inflammatory drugs for back pain, headache and other aches and pains.

Though these drugs have a good safety history, the risk of serious side effects rises when the medications are taken for long periods or in high doses, says Harvard Medical School.

To ensure you're taking the appropriate amounts, the school recommends:

  • Keep an updated list of all medications you take.
  • Read labels and instructions. Take medications only as prescribed.
  • When in doubt, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

If you don't think your pain reliever is helping, talk to your doctor about changing medications.
