I don't understand WHY anyone with AS or who wanted to keep their bone mass would want to try NSAIDs, long-term, but Orudis is one of the better ones--short term.
There is a spectrum of NSAIDs and the most dangerous ones are, unfortunately, sometimes the most effective.
I don't know whether this is totally accurate; I have no gauge but my own experiences plus some conjecture, but I estimate and rate NSAIDs based upon what I think
their Descending order of danger
Celebrex (selective COx inhibitor)
Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid)
5ASA (pent aminosalicylic acid)
Sorry, this is sort of just from memory as I cannot find my original document file.
I have to agree with Dr. Mercola's opinion of NSAIDs
, in general, and he does suggest not to mix acetaminophen (Tylenol) with any of them.
Good luck to You,
