Took Feldene for dental procedure. Reduced inflammation, pain in ankle. Take 10-20mg per day?

I took Feldene for a dental procedure and found that it reduced inflamation and pain in my ankle, which has severe osteoarthritis from various athletic injuries. It works! However, I am worried about side effects. I try to take as little as possible to get results....10-20mg/day. Is there something out there that will work equally well, without the potential side effects?

Hello and welcome,

I have read your concern.

Feldene is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug which is a piroxicam derivative.
The drug has worked for both the teeth as well as for joints since it is an analgesic.
Without direct clinical examination,medicines cannot be prescribed.
Please do not take medicines without consuting a doctor as it can cause many side effects than uses of the drug.
pLease do consult a dentist and take medicines.
Maintain good oral hygiene.
hope this helps
