Hi, my name is Kayti Brosnan. I'm a Registered Nurse here in Austin, Texas and the question today is, "What is NSAIDs?" NSAIDs stands for Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drug and this is a name that's pretty big for a lot of commonly use drugs. Some examples are Advil, Motrin, Ibuprofen or Naproxen. These are all NSAIDs. The things that we use for pain, swelling or inflammation and this might be for something that's acute, that just happen or for something that's a little bit more chronic like a knee injury that you've been taking care of over weeks and months. It's good to remember that you should always take these with something to eat and that there are a lot of side effects that involve the stomach that it can be highly irritating to your stomach and it can cause stomach ache or over time, an ulcer. But they are really good for some acute injuries involving any swelling, pain or inflammation. And that's what a NSAID is.
