Ansaid Description

The pain of arthritis can take away your ability to move easily and comfortably, limit your daily activities, and cause deformities that can diminish your independence. Although there is no cure for arthritis, your doctor can prescribe Ansaid or generic Flurbiprofen to ease the pain and inflammation so you’re able to enjoy getting around and doing things with fewer limitations. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

How Ansaid Helps to Reduce Your Pain and Inflammation

Ansaid works by inhibiting the cyclo-oxygenase enzymes (COX-1 and COX-2) that are responsible for making several classes of compounds, including prostaglandins, as an immune response to injury or a threat. When your body is functioning normally, COX-1 produces baseline levels of prostaglandins as part of its housekeeping duties. This includes maintaining the lining in your stomach. When your immune response is triggered, COX-2 responds and prostaglandins are produced to cause inflammation and begin the healing process. By inhibiting these enzymes, you can find relief from the inflammation and pain.

Conditions Treated by Ansaid

Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis and typically affects weight-bearing joints simply from every day wear and tear over the years. As your cartilage wears from the constant friction of your joints moving back and forth, the two opposing bones will start eroding into each other and cause pain.

Joint injuries may also increase your risk of OA before you reach retirement age. To reduce the symptoms of osteoarthritis from becoming worse you can try to keep active, lose weight, and try physical therapy to strengthen your muscles and joints.

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that causes your own immune system to attack body tissue, including your cartilage and joint lining. This results in the opposing bones rubbing against each other and not only causing pain, but deformities of your hands or fingers. As with osteoarthritis, there is no cure, only treatment which may include Ansaid or, in rare cases, joint replacement.

Before Ansaid is Prescribed

If you are still child-bearing age, ask your doctor about the safety of taking Ansaid if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Tell your doctor about other medical conditions and allergies you have and list any OTC or Rx medications you are taking, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements. This will allow your doctor to determine if Ansaid is the right drug for you.

Ansaid Risks and Precautions

NSAIDs can increase your risk for heart problems or stomach ulcers and bleeding with long-term use. Your doctor may prescribe a low dose as maintenance to continue to help keep swelling, pain, and inflammation at a minimum so there is a decreased risk of serious side effects. Avoid driving, operating machinery, or performing any task that may be considered risky until you know how your body will react to Ansaid.
