A recent study shows that some of the medications widely used to fight arthritis may lower the body’s defenses to infections, causing serious illnesses.
The Food and Drug Administration - has issued warnings against the drugs Enbrel, Remicade, Humira and Cimzia because they can raise the risk of possibly fatal fungal infections.
Arthritis is a very common joint problem and several drugs may provide the relief from swollen and painful joints. However, medications appear to be solving one problem and creating a new one, since patients taking drugs are developing infections.
Patients should call their doctors and stop taking these products at the first sign of a possible fungal infection, such as persistent fever, cough, fatigue and shortness of breath.
Natural supplements for joint support have provided relief for thousands of people without any side effects. Results may take a couple weeks but products are safe to be taken on a regular basis with zero risk of developing infections.
Glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM and hyaluronic acid are the most popular ingredients available and a combination of two or more can be very efficient against arthritis. Taking a fish oil product regularly will promote quicker and better results.
Most people taking natural supplements for joints are quite happy with the results and wouldn’t switch back to any prescription drug. Ask your heath practitioner before using any supplements or before making any changes in prescribed medications.
Don’t wait; let’s get rid of the pain. Look for a natural product that will promote healthy joints without any risks.
