Full story: Inland Valley Daily Bulletin

Those of us who live with RA are often desperate for some sort of relief. It's nice to say "be careful", but when given a choice of constant pain and disability and relief from such, the decision is practically made for you. Those who don't suffer the ravages of this disease can't really know what it's like to have to make these choices. I'd like nothing better than to eschew all the potent drugs, but without them, I'd be a complete invalid, in constant severe pain, unable to work, take care of myself, or live my life in any sort of normal fashion. Not much quality in a life like that, so making the decision to risk the side effects of the drugs can be easier than you might think.

I''ve been taking Indocin for headaches for 2 years. I now have heart disease and my cardiologist insists I get off it because it is so bad for my heart. How do I get off it ? It has been 10 days and have had horrible headaches. I have tried acytaminaphrin with limited success and naproxin, but it's the same kind of medicine. What to do? What to do?

I have been drinking tart cherry juice for my RA and it works wonders. But you need to learn about it yourself. I live in cherry country in Michigan so I heard about it for years, but if you wnat to learn more about RA and cherry juice I recommend a free book from Traverse Bay Farms entitled the Official Tart Cherry Health Report. Here is the link if you are interested: http://www.traversebayfarms.com

Lower the dosage gradually. Ask your doctor to prescribe the lowest dose of Indomethacin and taper off. I don't understand why you'd be having trouble with it. It's a NSAID, not a steroid. Good luck.

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from http://inhousegeneric.info about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.

I have used http://qgeneric.info/#aset for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.

have been researching for months and reading reviews for each pharmacy and finally decided to take the plunge and order from one. After coming to the conclusion http://goo.gl/bLFWQG seemed the most safest and had the best feedback I ordered my pills. Was very apprehensive at first due to cc fraud, ell and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase againspam and being generally ripped off (have not received one spam email and no cc fraud) order process and checkout was simple.
placed my order on my debit card and was charged straight away and received confirmation email immediately. choose the speedy del trackable and was advised del would be 7-9 days and order was placed on the 08/01. was just about to email them today to chase up as now 15 days but behold package had been posted through my door. packaging seems as shown on webiste. apart from small delay on advertised shipping time i have been generally please with the pharmacy.
wont be taking the pills for another few weeks yet but all going well and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase again from them.
