DICLOFENAC; MISOPROSTOL is a combination of two different drugs. Diclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It is used to reduce swelling and to treat pain. Misoprostol protects the stomach against ulcers. This medicine is used for arthritis in people who are at high risk for stomach ulcers from NSAID treatment.
The most common antipyretics in the United States are ibuprofen and aspirin, which are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) used primarily as analgesics (pain relievers), but which also have antipyretic properties; and acetaminophen (paracetamol), an analgesic with weak anti-inflammatory properties.
Naproxen (brand names: Aleve, Naprosyn, and many others) is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) of the propionic acid class (the same class as ibuprofen) that relieves pain, fever, swelling, and stiffness. It is a nonselective COX inhibitor, usually sold as the sodium salt. It is available in both an immediate release and extended release formulation. Naproxen is generally safe to use in breastfeeding mothers.

Like analgesics, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) treat pain. Unlike analgesics, these drugs also help prevent painful inflammation and joint damage. They’re the top choice of treatment for people with OA because they’re effective and non-sedating.
