Anti Inflammatory Drugs

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if their are any kid of anti inflammatory drugs that are safe for someone who is gluten sensitive and has leaky gut issues? I have inflammation in my hands and a strained back, but I heard these drugs will undo my progress I have made in healing my gut after being glutened weeks ago.

hm. I use Ibuprofen all the time. I believe it can cause stomach issues, not intestinal, but I'm not sure about that.

I don't know if it would work for you but I take plain asprin. If my muscles and joints are having a bad day a hot shower and some Tiger Balm also gives some relief.

Just go with Ibuprofen. It doesn't have as much bleeding risk as the aspirin. But if you take it on an empty stomach it can cause stomach discomfort. So long as it's gluten-free it won't undue anything since it's absorbed in the stomach, not the intestine.

I have been taking prescription anti-inflammatories for years. Ibuprofin no longer works. I take Salsalate. Its Gluten Free but I still check every few months or so. You never know. I NEVER take it on a empty stomach. So far so good for me, no problems with my gut.

I have been taking prescription anti-inflammatories for years. Ibuprofin no longer works. I take Salsalate. Its Gluten Free but I still check every few months or so. You never know. I NEVER take it on a empty stomach. So far so good for me, no problems with my gut.

I don't think it would work for me because of the warning. Here's part of it:

People who take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) (other than aspirin) such as salsalate may have a higher risk of having a heart attack or a stroke than people who do not take these medications. These events may happen without warning and may cause death. This risk may be higher for people who take NSAIDs for a long time. Tell your doctor if you or anyone in your family has or has ever had heart disease, heart failure, a heart attack, or a stroke; if you smoke; and if you have or have ever had high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or diabetes. Get emergency medical help right away if you experience any of the following symptoms: chest pain, shortness of breath, weakness in one part or side of the body, or slurred speech.

If you will be undergoing a coronary artery bypass graft (CABG; a type of heart surgery), you should not take salsalate right before or right after the surgery.

NSAIDs such as salsalate may cause ulcers, bleeding, or holes in the stomach or intestine. These problems may develop at any time during treatment, may happen without warning symptoms, and may cause death. The risk may be higher for people who take NSAIDs for a long time, are older in age, have poor health, smoke, or drink large amounts of alcohol while taking salsalate. Tell your doctor if you take any of the following medications: anticoagulants ('blood thinners') such as warfarin (Coumadin); aspirin; other NSAIDS such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) and naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn); or oral steroids such as dexamethasone (Decadron, Dexone), methylprednisolone (Medrol), and prednisone (Deltasone). Also tell your doctor if you have or have ever had ulcers, bleeding in your stomach or intestines, or other bleeding disorders. If you experience any of the following symptoms, stop taking salsalate and call your doctor: stomach pain, heartburn, vomiting a substance that is bloody or looks like coffee grounds, blood in the stool, or black and tarry stools.
