Anti-inflammatory medications are often referred to as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Inflammation is the body's way of protecting itself after irritation or an injury.

Anti-inflammatory medications work by reducing the body’s production of prostaglandins, chemicals that cause fever, pain and inflammation. Prostaglandins also help keep the lining of the intestines and stomach protected from acids, they promote normal kidney function, and they activate blood platelets to promote blood clotting.
Enzymes called cyclooxygenases (COX) produce prostaglandins. Anti-inflammatory medications block these COX enzymes, which reduces prostaglandin production, reducing fever, pain and inflammation. Taking these medications can help to reduce your pain, a fever or inflammation. If you are suffering from these symptoms, anti-inflammatory medications can help.
Many different conditions can be effectively treated by anti-inflammatory medications. Conditions that cause mild to moderate pain, fever and inflammation can be treated effectively:
Like other medications, anti-inflammatory medications have the potential to cause side effects. Some common side effects of these medications may include:
Measures you can take to reduce side effects include:
FAQ #1 – Which anti-inflammatory is the safest?
No anti-inflammatory is safer than any other, although some come with fewer potential side effects. Try different options to see which one works best for you. Choose the one that causes the fewest side effects.
FAQ #2 – What anti-inflammatory is safe when pregnant?
Anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen and Celebrex are considered safe to take early in a pregnancy. However, no anti-inflammatory medications should be taken during the last trimester of pregnancy unless directed by your doctor.
FAQ #3 – Are anti-inflammatory drugs addictive?
Never use an over-the-counter NSAID continuously for more than three days for fever, and 10 days for pain, without talking to your healthcare provider.
FAQ #4 – Can I take anti-inflammatory medications if I drink alcohol?
When you are taking anti-inflammatory medications, avoid drinking alcohol. Drinking while using these medications can increase your risk for bleeding of the stomach and intestines.
FAQ #5 – Where can I purchase anti-inflammatory medications?
You can purchase anti-inflammatory medications at local pharmacies or other stores. However, the easiest, most convenient way to buy your anti-inflammatory medications is online. Order today for fast, discrete shipping!
FAQ #6 – How long can I take anti-inflammatory medications?
Anti-inflammatory medications are usually used for short-term treatment of conditions that cause pain and inflammation. Taking these medications for an extended period of time can increase the risk of side effects.
FAQ #7 – Can I take more than one anti-inflammatory medication at the same time?
Taking multiple anti-inflammatory medications at the same time is not safe. Choose one medication that works for you and only take that medication unless you switch completely to a different medication. Read product safety information on over-the-counter medications to make sure you are not accidentally taking multiple products that contain anti-inflammatory medications at the same time.
FAQ #8 – Can I take anti-inflammatory medications with acetaminophen?
Acetaminophen is not an anti-inflammatory medication; the two medications work in different ways. Taking these medications at the same time is safe. However, take them at least four hours apart.
All anti-inflammatory medications work to reduce both inflammation and pain. However, sometimes choosing the right one for your needs can be difficult, since the medications can affect different individuals in different ways.
You may find that you enjoy better relief with one anti-inflammatory medication than with another. Some anti-inflammatory medications may have fewer side effects than others. The effects vary from individual to individual. Certain anti-inflammatory medications can also be more convenient, since they only need to be taken once or twice each day.
