What is NSAID
NSAID stands for Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug. It’s a type of medicine that helps reduce pain, swelling, and fever. Some common examples of NSAIDs are ibuprofen (like Advil or Motrin) and naproxen (like Aleve). Imagine your body is like a superhero trying to fight off bad guys (like germs or injuries). Sometimes, these bad guys can make your body feel sore and swollen. NSAIDs come in to help your superhero body by fighting off the bad guys and making you feel better. Here’s a cool fact: According to the American College of Rheumatology, NSAIDs are one of the most commonly used types of medicines in the world to treat pain and inflammation. So, they’re like the sidekicks helping out your superhero body!
