NSAIDs

Hi,
I have inflammation of a facet joint in my back, Doc prescribed Diclofenac which caused me a stomach upset and skin rash after a week, now trying Naproxen along with Ranitidine to prevent stomach probs!!Anyone experienced similar?? Bit concerned that instructions say avoid alcohol with Naproxen. BUT IT'S FRIDAY!!!!

  • Been on Diclofenac Sodium for well over two years now. No problems at all.
  • stomach upsets are a common problem with NSAIDs. You need to make sure that you take them with or after food to minimise the risk.
  • I can't tolerate NSAID's for any length of time. Vomiting and nausea (plus vomiting blood) quickly occurs but everyones tolerance is different.
