Gout and Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Agents (NSAIDs)

Written by sshowalter.

Effect of Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Agents (NSAIDs) on Gout

Common names include:

  • Ibuprofen (Apo-Ibuprofen)
  • Indomethacin (Indocin)
  • Naproxen (Aleve)
  • Diclofenac (Cataflam)

NSAIDs are given to treat the pain, inflammation, and swelling caused by gout attacks. They can be purchased over-the-counter or your doctor may prescribe a higher dosage. They work by decreasing prostaglandins, hormones that produce inflammation and pain. The medicine may also be taken in smaller doses to help prevent attacks in patients with recurrent gout attacks. NSAIDs are given in tablet, capsule, or liquid form. They should be taken at the same time (or times) each day and should be taken with food or liquid to help avoid stomach upset.

Read more details about Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Agents (NSAIDs).

Drinking alcoholic beverages or taking other NSAIDs while you are already using an NSAID can increase your risk of side effects. Always take NSAIDs with food to decrease the chance of stomach irritation.

Possible side effects include:

  • Stomach upset
  • Stomach ulcers
  • Kidney damage
  • Liver inflammation
  • Confusion, dizziness, lightheadedness
  • Severe allergic reaction (hives, difficulty breathing, swelling around the eyes)
  • Increased risk of bleeding – Always inform your healthcare providers that you are taking an NSAID before having any medical or dental procedures or surgeries.

Take special care with NSAIDs if you have had an ulcer or gastritis, as they can irritate these conditions. Tell your doctor if you have a stomach condition before you start taking any of these medications.

Please listen to this man! Called Herbalist Dr. Kham His Herbal Medication cured my genital warts in less than two weeks! I thought I would never be able to live without the warts ever again and now I do. I was cured of my long term genital herpes after using herbal medicine from Herbalist Dr. Kham. I’m so happy and God bless you for all you do and getting people cured from herpes disease, I’m so glad to be amongst the people you’ve cured from Herpes this year. I cherish you forever Doctor. Please please please believe him and do whatever he says. Herb is really the best and probably only cure to herpes. And please don’t be too nice to yourself. Herpes is a serious thing. Stick to the regimen, stop smoking and cut out Alcohol and stay away from any sweetened foods or candies as his herb medicine doesn’t work effectively with sugar or sugary foods and drinks. One week of not consuming some stuff or the rest of your life with herpes simplex virus. It’s your choice. And trust me, I tried just cutting out cigarettes and alcohol though it wasn’t easy as I’m addicted to smoking and drinking of alcohol. Once I stopped doing both and all of what the doctor instructed me not to do and taking my herb medicine the improvement was magical! I was cured from my genital warts/herpes in two week of using this Herbalist Dr. Kham herb remedy. All in all, thank you doctor! You helped me get my healing and life back. God bless you.
