I have decreased kidney function. I require anti-inflammatory RX strength drugs. Which is better choice for my kidneys? NSAIDS or Corticosteroids?

The Lamictal may be causing aches and pains in and of itself. And it may also affect kidney function. I don't think I would recommend any intervention (NSAID, Corticosteroid) until your medical history is fully taken into account. ...Read moreSee 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
One or the other: It`s unnecessary and not advisable. Oral NASAIDS get into most tissues-local sprays are local but with some small systemic absorption. Don`t do both. ...Read more

I have had shoulder pain off and on for 5 months and everyday for over 3 weeks. Went 2 a dr a month ago and started pt. Why arent nsaids helping?
It depends on dose : Nsaids will help but you have to take them in proper/full dose which you can look up in google and take them every 6-8 hours as their effect is expected to last no more than 8 hours. But watch that your stomach can handle them...May need to take an antacid along with them. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
