The non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are those indicated by health authorities to relieve pain of different causes and reduce the symptoms of fever. Although this type of medication usually generates various side effects , although not everyone has to develop them.

In this sense, a group of researchers is currently testing a new pain pill with far fewer side effects than those that can be generated by non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in the body.

That is to say, the objective of science is to obtain a pill that allows us to 'kill' the pain but without causing any type of damage to the body.

Thus, among the most well-known and used non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in Spain are ibuprofen, naproxen or aspirin.

Contraindications of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs

We must be clear that any medication approved by the Spanish Agency for Medicines and Health Products (AEMPS) has a series of side effects after consumption.


That is, before taking any type of medication, whether nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or another type, it is necessary to know the benefits of their intake and the possible complications. or adverse effects that its consumption can develop.

For this, the safest way to take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) is to follow the administration instructions indicated by a medical specialist.

Thus, according to the 'American College of Rheumatology', all non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) include the following health risks:

  • Stomach problems.
  • Ulcer.
  • Stomach ache.
  • Renal problems.
  • High blood pressure.
  • Heart problems.
  • Fluid retention.
  • Rashes or other allergic reactions.

That is why, for years, science has been working on a new drug that acts as an alternative to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), but that has much fewer effects secondary to the organism.

In this sense, Dr. Kikuko Amagase, from the University of Ritsumeikan (Japan) confirms that “it can be concluded that the compound AD200 appears to be a safer and more effective molecule with promising potential for the treatment of pain and inflammation, even in difficult diseases such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.”

Reasons to stop consuming NSAIDs

Obviously, people who have any type of allergy to the compounds present in non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) should not take this medicine.

In any case, it is always advisable to observe the prospectus of any medication and follow the intake instructions dictated by your doctor or a specialist pharmacist.

In addition, the AEMPS recommends not taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) without a prescription for more than 01 days.

Thus, if you present certain symptoms, it is recommended that you stop taking NSAID medications. Especially if in a treatment with this type of medication you notice an increase in pain, pus in a wound; fever without any other cause, swollen glands above the injury, redness or warm skin around the painful area.

Likewise, the health authorities advise against taking a higher dose than recommended; as well as prolonging the treatment over time beyond the medical indication.
