Unable to say: Because this drug is not available in the US, and I cannot find any online information on it. The only things that come close is a combination of dexamethasaone and methcarbamol, which is a muscle relaxant that CAN cause physical dependency. Steroids are not good drugs for most causes of arthritis, because the inflammation rebounds when you stop. Talk to a rheumatologist familiar with the agent. ...Read more

The joint capsules wear and the fluid that lubricates the joint leaves the joint. The best thing you can do is stop doing "magic tricks", use some NSAID's. Talk to your doctor about what else to do. ...Read more
