Anti inflammatory analgesics Nsaid Aceclofenic + Paracetamol Diclofenic pottasium

Doctor Start the treatment with DMARDs,prednisone When the patient is on Above drugs you need to know that the patient becomes susceptible to skin infections upper respiratory infections pneumonia urinary tract infections (UTIs) Educate the patient accordingly It might take few months Still the patient experiences relief as soon as you start the medication.

I started deflacort and Etoricoxib.. Is it ok????

Yes Sir, I'm Agree with @Md Altaf Hussain

Treatment only if symptomatic. Many people have RA +ve. Start with 1)Methotrexate 5 mg once a wk with Folinic acid supplements 2)Deflazacort 6 mg tds/bd , taper after 4 wks not more than 12 wks 3)PPI 4) Calcium Vit D tabs 5) Aclofenac paracetamol for few weeks until pain resides then gradually taper and stop over 6 months-1 yr 6) Low HB is common , start Ferrous sulphate VIMP : Monitor SGPT + Creatinine + ESR monthly for a year. When ESR < 50 you can gradually decrease the dose of steroids. Dr.ortho oil for external use

Thanks
