Feldene warning ugh


Active Member
I hurt my knee somehow and finally went to the doctor on monday. he x-ray'd and put me on Feldene, an NSAID (non steroid anti inflammatory). I read the paper that comes with it and it scared me for sure. now I know those papers have to say everything the medication can cause in problems, but this one really got my attention with it warning of heart and other problems,

but I took it every day for three days now.

the pharmacist had only a few pills left when I filled it and asked me to come back to get the rest so today I went to pick up the other pills.


seems the medication is no longer made as it caused some deaths. thanks, buddy.

needless to say it is going in the toilet. nice that they let me take it 3 dys before anyone knew it was withdrawn. grrrr.

ALL NSAIDS can cause difficulty with the heart and with the stomach. Feldene is no different. Feldene has actually been out for about 20 years and has a pretty good track record.

Read the full warnings on the OTC NSAIDs and you will see exactly the same thing.
