Anti Inflammatory Without Aspirin
Not really: Aspirin at low doses has the ability to decrease the stickiness of your platelets and is often used to reduce chances of a stroke or heart attack. Aspirin does have anti-inflammatory properties, but its association with liver damage/failure and brain damage in kids (reye syndrome) led to rare use under the age of 16.See 1 more doctor answer
If aspirin is anti-inflammatory, why doesn't it lower CRP blood levels? Or does it? What about other NSAIDS? Thx
Take 1 20 mg Xarelto for A-fib, advised not to take 1 Aleve (naproxen) nightly for anti-inflammatory help. Aleve (naproxen) is not aspirin/antiplatelet so why?
Is aspirin an effective anti-inflammatory or should one use tylenol (acetaminophen) or Advil for a sprained knee?
You know your body: There is no one best medication for everybody. You should always stay within the recommended dosage on the packaging and discontinue it if you have side effects. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is not an anti-inflammatory, but it may control your pain. If your symptoms are not improving, you should be evaluated. All of those medications may have side effects with prolonged use.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes quite a few: Ibuprofen (sold in the us as motrin, advil) and Naproxen (sold as aleve) are both anti-inflammatories lasting eight and twelve hours respectively. They are often referred to as nsaids or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. In addition, old fashioned Aspirin works the same way. Acetaminophen (or paracetamol), sold as tylenol (acetaminophen) is not an NSAID and works differently. Does nothing for inflammation.
Many: Traditional medicine will use nsaids to help decrease inflammation as well as ice after activity. Other natural things to incorporate are high doses of omega 3 _4-6 grams/day, curcumin or adding tumeric to your food daily 1/2 tsp, glucosamine chondroitan, msm, acupuncture, reiki can help as well.
Depends: If by "buying" your mean "over the counter", then you are limited. Ibuprofen. Aspirin and Naproxen sodium (aleve) are about the only anti-inflammatories available. If you are referring to buying prescription medications, there are several. "strongest" can be relative to the person. Indomethacin has long been considered a more potent med but Prednisone and such sterioids are truly potent ai's.See 2 more doctor answers
Not enough info: What specific medication do you means and what are you treating with them?
Ones that OB suggest: I don't know why you need to take an anti-inflammatory, but your present OB MD may have a recommendation if a call is placed to him/her. Because you are 37 weeks pregnant, it is important that your medical advice come from that one source.
NSAIDs: Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) which is a large class of medications including, ibuprofen, naproxen, Celebrex, (celecoxib) Voltaren, Toradol, etc., etc., are primarily metabolized by the kidney and although high doses of these medications can cause kidney damage; these drugs not generally known to cause any liver problems. The liver is more commonly affected by acetaminophen and/or narcotics.
More research needed: There is some scientific evidence that some compounds in carrots (and in other plants) fight inflammation in the laboratory. There is a study that suggests purple carrots fight inflammation in rats. It is a long way from the test tube to the tummy, though. Too, humans are not rates (usually). There is a small study in 16 males, with the extracts from purple carrots, but there was no effect.
No such diet: There is no such thing as an anti-inflammatory diet. That is a total fallacy.
Package directions: Directions for dosage should be clearly marked on prescription package. Are the drops for an eye problem, or did you have eye surgery? Usual dose is 1 - 2 drops four times a day. Contact the prescribing doc for how long you should use them.
Speak to your doctor: The answer depends on what you are being treated for. Is it the disease or the drug that is causing the issue. Only your doctor can really answer that.
