Hi, I was advised to start taking Arthrotec as treatment for arthritis. But, I wonder if it has bad influence on stomach, since I’ve got peptic ulcer. Should I still take it?

Hi, this combination of ingredients has been shown to reduce the frequency of ulcers of the stomach caused by NSAIDs. Arthrotec is a combination of diclofenac and misoprostol. Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) Diclofenac is used to reduce pain, fever, inflammation. Still, it has a side effect of inducing ulcers in stomach and promoting bleeding. Misoprostol is a synthetic prostaglandin that protects mucus in the gastrointestinal tract and protects the lining of the stomach from acid. So, this combination should be suitable for you, causing you only pain relief without stomach complications.
