Thank you for your consult at DoctorSpring. My first suggestion is to reduce the dosage of your meds. What dosage are you currently on? I would advise you switch to a lower dose that will still provide pain relief but less side-effects.

What is your diagnosis? I am curious as I may be able to suggest other alternatives or medications for your illness that could have less side effects.

Alternatively, there are non-prescription remedies that can be tried to reduce tinnitus, or the ringing in your ears. Vitamin B supplements, zinc tablets, and sometimes even acupuncture have been known to reduce ringing.

Please feel free to ask any further questions. Take care and be well.

Regards

Hello again,

My guess is that you are suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis. Here is what I suggest for you:

1. It seems that you are suffering from pain and inflammation mostly in specific joints and direct corticosteroid injections may be useful for you. These can provide relief for one to two months or maybe even longer depending on the severity of your symptoms. You can do the injections and also take your meds for relief of pain and stiffness. Furthermore this may allow you to reduce your dosage of Safediclo and I suggest cutting down to half initially.

2. Corticosteroid can also be taken orally and can provide relief, but the side effects are more when taken orally.

3. You can consider methotrexate or penicillamine if you are not already taking disease modifying agents. These are known to treat rheumatoid arthritis and can give variable results.

4. If all else fails, and you cannot find the appropriate drug regimen to treat your disease and symptoms, there is a last option of taking immunosuppresants. These will suppress your immune system and reduce the inflammation in your joints.

All drugs have side effects and they vary in every individual. You will have to try different methods and combinations to find relief and treatment for your particular situation. Capsaicin cream can offer some relief after applied for a few days and it can be purchased over the counter. Try physical therapy such as range of motion exercises and endurance exercises to increase flexibility. Get plenty of sleep and frequent naps, and try to reduce your stress levels at all costs. Yoga and meditation can be very helpful. There is no cure for arthritis as it is a chronic life-long condition. Adjusting your lifestyle to improve your functionality can give you a very good prognosis.

Take care of yourself and be well. Please ask any further questions if any.

Regards
