Thank you! Could you give me your opinion of which works best and is safer with the least chance of negative side effects: mobic, (meloxicam) relafen or voltaren?

Even odds: These are all members of the NSAID family. They all have about the same potential for side effects such as stomach irritation or possibly some salt and water retention (edema). There are some small studies that suggest that diclofenac might have slightly better analgesic effect but they all have fairly equivalent anti-inflammation properties. ...Read more

Is it safe to take nabumetone with ibuprofen for pain?

Not together: Taking two non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can cause gastritis, gastric ulcer, including gastric perforation. So, in general, the answer is no. On the other hand, assumning a single dose of Ibuprofen (800mg), with its half-life of nearly two hours, should be "completely" eliminated in 10 hours. Nabumetone, however, has a half-life of 20-24 hours is not "completely" elimininated for 5 day. ...Read more

Back pain: There are many pathologies that can cause back pain like a spinal compression fracture, spinal stenosis, lumbar muscle strain or herniated discs. I would get to a medical doctor for an evaluation soon, especially if the pain is still present after 2 months.
Additionally, speak with your physician about Nabumetone as taking a lot of that over a long period may cause kidney damage. ...Read more

Does anyone know how relafen (nabumetone) is taken?

Does anyone know how relafen (nabumetone) is taken?

I'll tell!: Usaully two 750mg tableets together, or one two times a day. Relafen (nabumetone) is inactive in your stomach, and is converted to its active form by the liver. Therefore, it can be once daily and great for arthritis or any chronic pain. But not good for an acute headache. Nonethless, take with fluids. If you decide to take it once daily, supper time is best. It will be around at night and am! ...Read more

What are alternatives to anti-inflammatories, like relafen (nabumetone)?

What is it for: The first thing is to establish a diagnosis. The anti-inflammatories can help, but maybe you don't need them and can improve the problemwith exercise, posture, etc. All medications have alternatives but some are better than others. With the NSAID we have to watch the stomach, the kidneys, the blood pressure. Each of these can be affected in a adverse way and you need to be monitored. ...Read more
