Making Sense of Pain Relief™ is an educational campaign designed to help clarify new, and sometimes confusing, information about pain relief.
For instance, there has been a lot of recent news about nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). NSAIDs treat pain, inflammation, and swelling related to arthritis and joint pain. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently requested label changes for over-the-counter (OTC) NSAIDs, such as ibuprofen and naproxen, and prescription-strength NSAIDs.
Now more than ever, it's important to talk with your health care provider about the most appropriate pain treatments for you, based on your own unique needs and personal health profile.
Keep in mind that ignoring your arthritis or joint pain may negatively impact your overall health.
Making Sense of Pain ReliefTM is an educational program of the American Chronic Pain Association, the American Pain Foundation and The National Pain Foundation with support of Pfizer Inc. The American Chronic Pain Association, the American Pain Foundation and The National Pain Foundation have cooperatively prepared information for this Web site to help people with pain and their families better understand the current situation and to regain a sense of control over the critical and personal decisions involved in managing pain.
