MiaB Posted October 18, 2006 Share Posted October 18, 2006 Can anyone explain exactly what the issue is between NSAIDs and Lithium? Is it simply that the anti-inflammatories increase the risk of lith toxicity? This is a problem. I'm still dealing with daily hip pain (broke it 4 months ago) and up til now I've been taking a codeine-ibuprofen drug. My orthopaedic surgeon is okay with putting me on just codeine, but I feel I need an anti-inflammatory more. Are there any options at all for me, or is this just a done deal? I did a quick search and none of the sites I saw came up with a viable alternative. The pain isn't likely to go away anytime soon, as it's caused by the pins they put in my femur moving to encourage the growth of bone spurs across the break. The doc wants me to live with it for as long as possible. thanks M Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
