NSAIDs for Arthritis Pain
VIMOVO is an NSAID ("EN-sed"), which is a common abbreviation for "nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug." NSAIDs have been widely used for many years. While some NSAIDs are available over the counter at retail stores, prescription-strength NSAIDs are available only from your doctor.
Work With Your Doctor When You Take NSAIDs
It's important to note that, because all NSAIDs can have significant side effects, you should always work with your doctor to develop a treatment plan that is right for you.
