Arthrotec – Arthritis Treatment with Arthrotec
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. To buy Arthrotec cheap online through any pharmacy in Canada, a prescription
from a licensed physician will be required.
