Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
For a seronegative arthritis, usually pain killers, regular hot fomentation and some physiotherapy exercises are required to take care of the symptoms. Saso is a pain killer and can be taken safely if you do not have a gastritis problem.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Regards,

hi,
actually saaz ds is a DMARD that is that it is a medicine for arthritis and it is not just a pain killer.
so it attacks arthritis at its root and does not just give relief from pain, so it is quite safe and effective.
diet does not have much to do with arthritis
