Hi,

It may be taken safely while suffering from arthritis. However, avoid using non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for the pain and swelling associated with arthritis as these drugs may decrease the blood pressure lowering effects of Olmezest. Further, Olmezest is not known to affect the sperm count.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
