Anti-inflammatory drugs are commonly prescribed to our patients. And there is probably no drug more widely used among our patient population, when you consider over-the-counter use. This seminar explores this class of drugs including non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), other analgesics, disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs), migraine drugs, and drugs to treat gout and ulcerative colitis. Join us as we look at the uses, mechanisms of action, cautions, and potential interactions of these agents.
