Nimesulide is legal in my country. My wife has a tooth problem & the doctor has prescribed a capusle containing Nimesulide-100mg & Serratiopeptidase-15mg to be taken just once a day for 6 days. She has taken one dose till now. Just now, I found out that nimesulide is banned in many countries because of liver & kidney problems. I went back & talked to the doctor, but she said that there were controversies regarding Nimesulide but it isn't more dangerous than any other NSAIDs. However, I am still scared because my wife has taken ibuprofen, paracetamol, diflocenac etc in the last month. Is there any other safer tablet I can substitute for Nimesulide - my wife doesn't seem to have much fever. I think the doctor has given it mainly for reducing inflammation & pain. My wife has swollen cheeks from dental surgery few weeks back - she isn't visiting the dentist any more - this is from a regular physician. What do people recommend as a substitute & what dosage? I am travelling & in unfamiliar territory & hence do not have a choice of changing too many doctors now. Is diflocenac a good safe substitute for reducing dental inflamation - what should be equivalent dosage? Is there a diff between diflocenac sodium or diflocenac pottasium? Also what is Serratiopeptidase?
