Orlando, FL— August 11, 2015 — Individuals who suffer from arthritic conditions often live a reduced quality of life due to the pain and discomfort they experience on a daily basis. Many of them resort to pain management options such as pain relief drugs. While these medications are effective in providing relief, there are drawbacks carried along with using them.
Experts reveal the risks of using arthritis pain relief drugs. Sufferers need to learn about these health risks and the side effects associated with the use of common arthritis medications. Doing this will help them make a wise and well-informed decision when choosing the right pain management option.
“Doctors often recommend a variety of pharmaceutical drugs to help sufferers achieve relief from swelling, stiffness and joint pain,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.
There are over-the-counter pain relievers and they vary according to the relief they offer, how they work, and the side effects they often cause. While they are made available with the need for a prescription, these drugs can also cause certain side effects. The most commonly used pain reliever for arthritis is believed to cause side effects such as allergies or stomach problems. There are also medications that work only to provide relief and not treat inflammation. These pain relief drugs can be less effective for some people, especially those that suffer from severe arthritis pain.
According to experts, the side effects may vary. There are individuals who suffer from the risk of liver damage while others experience lightheadedness, dizziness, constipation, vomiting and nausea. A combination of pain relief drugs can even slow down breathing.
Matthew Grissinger, a pharmacist with the Institute for Safe Medicine Practices, suggests that sufferers need to be careful about taking over-the-counter cough and cold products. They may contain ingredients that are present in pain relief drugs and can cause side effects. Other side effects associated with the use of pain relief drugs, such as NSAIDs, include ulcers, stomach upset and gastrointestinal bleeding. There are even pain relief drugs that can worsen the condition of individuals with heart problems.
Today, many individuals who suffer from arthritis and who do not want to experience side effects, are resorting to other pain management measures. These measures include the use of natural alternatives such as glucosamine supplements. Glucosamine is believed to be as helpful as pharmaceutical drugs with providing pain relief, only it does not cause adverse effects. The most popular glucosamine supplements nowadays are those that contain natural ingredients such as MSM, chondroitin and turmeric (www.amazon.com/Glucosamine-Sulfate-Chondroitin-Supplement-Turmeric/dp/B00DUMO9X4/).
