SURGAM (TIAPROFENIC ACID)

Surgam Description

Surgam is a non-steroidal anti inflammatory drug, commonly referred to as an NSAID, that will help calm down the inflammation and provide relief from a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions to allow you proper rest and a better range of motion. Talk to your doctor about an Rx for Surgam if you are dealing with the pain and inflammation of rheumatoid or osteoarthritis (RA or OA), ankylosing spondylitis, lower back pain, or you have undergone surgery recently. Long term use of NSAIDs can cause stomach problems so your doctor can prescribe a lower dose or only recommend taking Surgam when needed for pain.

How COX Inhibitors Work to Reduce Pain and Inflammation

The active ingredient of Surgam is Tiaprofenic Acid and it works as a COX (cyclooxygenase) inhibitor. There are two kinds of this enzyme, COX-1 and COX-2, which both contribute to producing inflammatory chemicals such as prostaglandins when your immune system detects a threat or injury.

When you take Surgam as directed, Tiaprofenic Acid will inhibit the COX enzymes so there is a reduction of prostaglandins and the inflammation and pain will subside. Surgam cannot heal arthritis, but it can help you get back into your daily routine and enjoy being active again.

The 2 Most Common Types of Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease, meaning that your own immune system is attacking tissues in your body that it has mistakenly deemed as a threat. Your cartilage and joint linings become eroded so there is no cushioning between joints and this causes pain and inflammation. The more commonly affected joints are your wrists, fingers, knees, and elbows.

Osteoarthritis is a result of normal wear and tear over the years or could occur from an injury. OA typically affects your weight-bearing joints such as spine, back, and pelvis. Ankylosing spondylitis can begin in late adolescence and men are more likely to have it than women. The onset of symptoms can start out slow with general discomfort, pain, and stiffness that will spread and worsen with time.

Before Surgam is Prescribed

Ask your doctor about any risks with taking Surgam if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies with your doctor and list any OTC or Rx drugs you take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements to determine if Tiaprofenic Acid is safe for you.

Surgam Precautions

You should take Surgam with a meal or right after eating to avoid any possible stomach problems. Keep Surgam and other medications stored safely out of children’s reach. Until you know how Surgam will affect you, avoid driving, operating machinery, or performing any task that could be considered unsafe. Do not start, stop, or change the recommended dosage as this could cause an adverse reaction with other medications.
