When providing patient education to someone taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), it is important to emphasize the potential risks as well as advantages of these medications. For instance, patients should be aware that NSAIDs can help reduce inflammation and relieve pain but they also have a higher risk for causing stomach irritation than other types of pain relief medication. They should also be instructed to always take the medication with food in order to minimize the chance of developing an upset stomach.
Additionally, they should understand that prolonged use could increase their risk for kidney or liver damage so regular testing will be necessary if they are going to remain on the drug for an extended period of time. Finally, since there are a variety of different NSAID medications available it is important for them to know which type they are taking and what side effects may occur from its usage such as drowsiness or dizziness in order prevent any unexpected reactions from occurring. Overall these teaching points will provide patients with adequate knowledge regarding NSAIDs so that they can safely utilize them when necessary while minimizing their chances of experiencing any adverse effects.
