Arthrotec Arthritis Treatment with Arthrotec



Home

Arthrotec is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug or NSAID intended for the treatment of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Its chemical name is Diclofenac/Misoprostol. Arthrotec is generally prescribed to patients that are particularly susceptible to stomach issues.

Diclofenac/Misoprostol is the combination of two drugs. The Diclofenac in this medicine is the NSAID. It reduces inflammation and pain by diminishing hormones in the body that may cause these symptoms. It is the Misoprostol that makes Arthrotec different than many arthritis drugs. This component is intended to reduce stomach acids and bolster the protective elements of the stomach lining. The NSAID is wrapped in the Misoprostol to protect the stomach from the irritation of the NSAID. Because of the presentation of this medicine, Arthrotec should always be taken whole and never crushed, chewed or cut. It should also be accompanied by a full glass of water.

Because it is an NSAID, Arthrotec may increase the risk of heart and circulatory problems, including heart attack and stroke. There are common side effects for this drug and they include mild stomach upset, drowsiness, blurred vision, dizziness, headache, nausea, unusual vaginal bleeding or ringing in the ears. More serious side effects may include severe tingling or numbness, chills, stiffness of the neck, diminished urination, swelling, chest pains, shortness of breath, coughing up blood, blood in the stool, increasing blood pressure, or fever. Arthrotec should not be taken by pregnant women because it may cause severe complications ranging from loss of the baby to premature birth to birth defects.
