Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs)
What are NSAIDs?
NSAIDs are used to treat pain in a number of medical conditions. They are also used to treat in ammation, which often produces or wors- ens pain by causing stiffness and swelling. Some NSAIDs are available without a doctor’s pre- scription (“over the counter” or OTC medica- tions).
