I am not supposed to take NSAIDS because I take Plavix daily as a heart attack and heart surgery survivor. What drug can I take to get relief from the pain and the inflammation? The pain is mostly located in my fingers and hands.
Since NSAID stands for non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, the only meds I can think of are real steroids (you don't want those for a number of reasons) or tylenol. Everything else from aspirin to celebrex is a NSAID. That's for the inflammation. For pain, might want to ask your doc for tylenol with codeine, if you aren't allergic. I'm afraid that's the best suggestion I have. Good Luck sir, I wish you well.
