Reviews for Nabumetone to treat Rheumatoid Arthritis
Review by Rheumatoid Arthritis 62:
I'm 66. Started Nabumetone about 4 years ago. Orginally prescribed a Cox-2 inhibitor, have high Blood pressure, the cox-2 experience was VERY BAD. Then tried Nabumetone 750mg, was prescribed 2 daily. Was acceptable to my Blood Pressure. After reviewing side effects decided to take 1 daily except when pain level is real bad, then take 2 for several days then go back to 1 daily. I'm pleased with Nabumetone and my self-medication technique.

Review by Anonymous (taken for 1 to 6 months):
Relafen (nabumetone): Like Celebrex and Vioxx, this caused blood pressure spurts, along with dizziness, weakness, and other side effects. Too dangerous for me to take because of how high it would send my blood pressure within an hour or so of taking it.

It did help, but to many side effects. Worst one was leg cramps at night for me.

Review by momaangel:
Relafen (nabumetone): Best low dose nonsteriodal drug. Not better than Bextra but less dangerous to the stomach.
