Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, usually abbreviated to NSAIDs /ˈɛnsɛd/ EN-sed—but also referred to as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory.

Regarding adverse effects, selective COX-2 inhibitors have lower risk of gastrointestinal bleeding, but a substantially more increased risk of myocardial infarction than the increased risk from nonselective inhibitors. Some data also supports that the partially selective nabumetone is less likely to cause gastrointestinal events. The nonselective naproxen appears risk-neutral with regard to cardiovascular events.

Clinical NSAID ulcers are related to the systemic effects of NSAID administration. Such damage occurs irrespective of the route of administration of the NSAID (e.g., oral, rectal, or parenteral) and can occur even in patients with achlorhydria.

In the United States, meloxicam is approved for use only in canines, whereas (due to concerns about liver damage) it carries warnings against its use in cats except for one-time use during surgery.

If your doctor prescribed NSAIDs, take them exactly as prescribed. Call your doctor if you have any problems with your medicine. Always read and follow all instructions on the label.

All medicines have side effects. But many people don't feel the side effects, or they are able to deal with them. Ask your pharmacist about the side effects of each medicine you take. Side effects are also listed in the information that comes with your medicine.

Each NSAID has its own dose (strength) and interval for how often to take the drug. The doses of medicines that are over the counter—sold without a doctor's.

NSAIDs work to decrease inflammation, pain and fever. NSAIDs block enzymes in the body that help make prostaglandins, chemicals that play a role in pain and inflammation. Older NSAIDs like ibuprofen block two of these enzymes, COX-1 and COX-2, but celecoxib (Celebrex) targets mainly COX-2. Celecoxib is no more effective than other NSAIDs. However, its possible risks differ from those of other NSAIDs, as the “Side effects” section below explains.

Warnings: If you have heart disease, you should not take celecoxib or another NSAID, including an over-the-counter NSAID, without first discussing it with your doctor.
