Recently began combination drugs for Diabetes Mellitus Type II and all my lab values came back normal after 8 months' treatment except for the renal values. Could be either diabetic damage or I thought perhaps my ibu habit of 2.4 grams A DAY for severe arthritis for about 15 YEARS might be the culprit! Duhhh... I quit the little red pills cold turkey on Dec. 23 and here's what I've experienced: Flu-like aching all over, upper abdominal cramping, leg cramps at night, flank pain and of course, severe arthritic pains everywhere. Anyone know of a good remedy for the arthritis? The rest should decrease and I can deal with. Thanks.
