NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa., May 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Many over-the-counter pain relievers will be required to carry stiffer warnings as the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) implements its new labeling rules. The final ruling, made Tuesday, calls for stronger labeling on the dangers of liver damage and stomach bleeding for non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, and ketoprofen.
Consumers, concerned with NSAIDs and their potential side effects, are turning to Boiron Arnicare as a safer choice for pain relief. Boiron, the leading manufacturer of homeopathic medicines, offers Arnicare as an affordable option for relief of muscle aches and stiffness, due to minor injuries, overexertion, and falls and reduces pain, swelling and discoloration from bruises without side effects or drug interactions. The Arnicare line of pain relievers includes oral pellets and ointment, gel and cream odorless topical formulas, as well as quick-dissolving tablets for arthritis pain.
The main active ingredient in Arnicare is homeopathic Arnica montana, a mountain daisy which is a perennial plant commonly found in the Northwestern parts of the U.S. and Central Europe. Arnica has been used for centuries as a natural pain reliever. Today doctors and pharmacists recommend Arnica in the safe form of a homeopathic medicine in more than 25 countries throughout the world.
Christophe Merville, D.Pharm., pharmacist and director of education and pharmacy development at Boiron, says NSAIDs are a valuable part of a pain relief treatment but they carry some risks. Improved warning labels will better enable consumers to make informed decisions regarding NSAID pain relief medicines and it may also encourage them to try homeopathy as a more natural solution to treating pain without side effects and other safety risks, according to Dr. Merville.
