serious complications

Patients with RA have a double risk of suffering the most serious complications of NSAIDs than patients with osteoarthritis, and the onset of gastrointestinal symptoms should be controlled. Cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors should be used with caution because of potential adverse effects of recent observation.

Glucocorticoids: Administered in equivalent doses of less than 10 mg of prednisone daily are highly effective in relieving the symptoms of RA and can delay joint damage. Minimal doses should be used due to the high risk of side effects, such as osteoporosis, cataracts, Cushingoid symptoms and hyperglycemia
