Re: arthrotec pain med/has anyone heard of it

I used Arthrotec and it was of some help. It stopped working after a few months though and then I switched to another anti-inflammatory, Voltaren. They are the same as Vioxx in that they are all anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs). You risk stomach problems if you take them a long time. My rheumy told me to take Prevacid an hour before I take an NSAID

Re: arthrotec pain med/has anyone heard of it

Arthrotec is an anti inflam which is supposed to be better on the stomach than some of the others. My Neuro put me on 2 * 50 mg per day though having just started them again and not sure that they are all that easy on the tummy!

Back sore again after first surf in 18 months over the week end ;-)
Worth it though!
