Medication Requests - NSAIDs
Because of ongoing safety concerns with NSAIDs the practice is no longer accepting prescription requests for these medicines.
These medicines belong to a group of medicines known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs. They can relieve pain or reduce inflammation.
Ibuprofen and Naproxen or, alternatives such as NSAID creams and gels (that you rub into your skin) can be purchased at your local community pharmacy. Ask your pharmacist for advice on the best treatment for you.
