Hi and thank you for asking us

Through the question and statement you gave on the above section, i completely understand your concern over this matter. For your information, the medicine you are taking or also known as Nimesulide is a non-steroid anti inflammatory drug that has been reported to be associated with serious adverse effects. Patients may experience symptoms similar to hepatic injury should discontinue the medication:

  • Anorexia
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Abdominal pain
  • Dark urine

Liver damage in most cases, are reversible. The use of Nimesulide and alcohol should not be used together as both can damage the liver. Thus I suggest for you to visit your nearest clinic and do a check up of your liver functions.

Boost your immune system with a balanced diet and good nutrition.
