Are there any problems I should know about taking Clonafec,

Customer Question
Are there any problems...

Are there any problems I should know about taking Clonafec, capsules or tablets for relief of back pain? I am presently taking Hydrocodone and are concerned about all the info being written about the potential problems existing re: these type of meds. I have had heart problems, in my family, and have been taking Coumadin for many years with no problems to date.

Doctor's Assistant: Do you know if your family has a history of heart disease? In general, how would you describe your health lately?

My mother died , due the effect of several strokes, and my younger brother ( Ten years) and I have been taking Coumadin for my atrial fib, for over 20 years. Except for back problems, and a history of back pain, I amquite active and otherwise quite healthy at 80 years old.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Nothing that I know of.

The minor side effects of the clonafec are headache, diarrhea, abdominal discomfort but since you are taking coumadin the risk of bleeding specially in stomach is high so i would discourage you to take this pain medicine rather it is better to take tablet tylenol as its side effect does not include bleeding issues.You can apply ibuprofen or clonafec cream over your back instead of taking it orally.So it is better to be on safe side.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
