i have (along with many other conditions) osteosporosis and osteoarthritis, actually the osteo's came from other conditions such as ddd, neuropathy, fibromyalgia and a few others i cant remember right now. i have tried several of the medicines out these days for the osteo's and have never been able to tolerate them. at the beginning of my injury (1989) i was given Nasaids, and several different kinds, i have only had one cup of coffee this am and cannot remember the names of most of them, one is Celebrex, anyway those types of meds make my stomach feel like i have a steel band around my stomach, i have made sure i have eaten before taking the meds, which my doctor advised me to do but still was so uncomfortable i couldnt move. i take 300mg neurotin for the fibro and that helps alot. i also take calcium and many vitimans. every time a new nasaid comes on the market, i willing try to take the meds, at this i would rather take my chances with the calcium and vitamins then the be that uncomforable. i am at a time in my life that my pain is being manage as well as it can be and i am not going to take anymore meds that keep me bedridden. hoping all are having a low pain day, and wondering if anyone else has a problem with antiinflammitories.
