Six Months of Antiinflamatories

Just curious as to how long it is safe to be on anti inflamatories. I have been on either Motrin or Mobic or Relafen at max dose for six months. Obviously not at the same time. The side affects concern me. I seem to do well with Mobic 15mg as a maintenance. If I have a flare up Im supposed to stop the Mobic and take 800 of Motrin for a week then back to Mobic. Any suggestions? Is name brand better than generic? Thanks


  • It all depends on your underlying issue and the reason for taking the anti-inflammatory meds. Some of us are on them daily for the duration.

    The best drug for you, is the one that works best for you and with the least amount of experienced side effects. Some times it takes going through several before finding one that works the best for each of us.
