Abstract: The nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) are often used to control pain, fever and inflammation. Although the benefits obtained with the use of NSAIDs are important, especially in chronic inflammatory diseases, about 25% of patients have side effects that restrict their use in clinical practice. NSAIDs are not considered disease-modifying drugs in rheumatoid arthritis and should be used only as symptomatic. Since they have both functions (antiinflammatory and analgesic properties), patients clearly prefer it to treat osteoarthritis. NSAIDs are effective in the treatment of back pain, any class of NSAIDs can be used, and there is no evidence that a class is more effective than another in relieving back pain. The risk of side effects should be taken due to the patient's age or previous history of gastric ulcer and renal failure. © Copyright Moreira Jr. Editora. Todos os direitos reservados.
