I injured my shoulder about a two months ago and my doctor suggested surgery but I wanted a second opinion. The second doctor and I discuss Nabumetone. Surgery is out of the question at this point but at the same time I don't want to take any medication that has severe side affects or that can lead to addiction.
Nabumetone is not addictive. It is one of the NSAID drugs. That means it's related to Ibuprofen and Aleve. So addiction is not an issue. As for side effects, usually the main one with NSAIDs is stomach upset. So it's best to take it with food, or milk or a thick shake. Just don't put it in your stomach alone.
