Has anyone experienced stomach "issues" while taking Arthrotec? I just started on the medicine and was wondering if my stomach "issues" were a side effect of this medication?

Thanks :wave:

All NSAIDS, which include Motrin and Aleve, can cause stomach problems (ulcers, acid relux, etc) with prolonged use. Be sure to take the Arthrotec with food to lessen the chances of an upset stomach. And let your doctor know if you experience any problems.
