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

Finger Pain: One of the problems with hyper mobile joints is they are not made to move that way. Therefore, they wear out. They get arthritis.
