I was taking Daypro for low back and shoulder injuries, could it cause lower GI inflammation?
I am a 44-year-old male, my internist ordered a endoscopy and the results were inflammation of the colon. I see an irritable bowel gasterointestinal physician in a week. I am overall in excellent health, except for this. • A: Daypro (oxaprozin) is a medication known as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID).
