Abstract

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are effective as anti-inflammatory agents, analgesics, and antipyretics. Their widespread use is in large part attributable to the high prevalence of osteoarthritis and other painful musculoskeletal conditions. These compounds, however, are associated with a broad spectrum of untoward reactions, especially in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract and kidney, and problems of platelet function.
