Zipsor Provides Relief From Many Inflammatory Conditions

Zipsor is a non-steroidal anti inflammatory drug (NSAID) that your doctor can prescribe when you need relief from pain and/or inflammation caused by an injury, arthritis, headache, dental and minor surgery, and menstrual pain, to name a few. If you are just starting to take Zipsor, you may begin to benefit from the full effect in a week or two. For mild to moderate pain Zipsor 25mg may be recommended to take 4 times a day to keep pain and swelling at bay.

How Zipsor Works to Relieve Pain and Inflammation

NSAIDs work by targeting the production of prostaglandins, inflammatory chemicals that are signaled when your body has sustained an injury, surgery, or you have arthritis. To do this, Zipsor blocks the cyclooxygenase (COX) 1 and 2 enzymes to reduce the amount of prostaglandins produced. This will result in less inflammation and pain.

The COX-1 enzyme concentrates most of its effects on protecting the lining of your stomach from the acid that can cause ulcers. So long-term use of NSAIDs is usually not recommended and should be taken only when pain and inflammation flares up, or take a low dose for maintenance which is less harmful to your gastric mucosa, such as Zipsor 25mg. The COX-2 enzyme is responsible for causing inflammation and fever.

NSAIDs for Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis

Non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs are the most popular treatment for those experiencing pain and inflammation from osteoarthritis (OA)and rheumatoid arthritis (RA). OA is a joint disease that results in the breakdown of the lining of your joints called cartilage so movement becomes more difficult as the affected joints are used because there is no cushioning as bone rubs on bone. RA can result in the destruction of the bones and cartilage in your joints when your immune system goes haywire and begins attacking the connective tissue.

Before You Start Taking Zipsor

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding to find out if Zipsor is safe to take. Advise your doctor of other medical condition or drug and food allergies you have and provide a list of OTC and Rx medications you currently take or use, including herbal, dietary, and vitamin supplements. Your doctor can then determine if Zipsor is the right drug for your situation.

Proper Use of Zipsor

Talk to your doctor before you start, stop, or want to change your dosage of any meds you take to be certain Zipsor will not cause adverse effects. Keep Zipsor and all other medications out of children’s reach and never share with anyone else. Until you know how Zipsor will affect you, do not drive or attempt any activities that require you to be alert.
