Ulcer

Type: 
Consumer

An ulcer is an irritation and inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, usually in the first part of the small intestine (duodenum) or the stomach. The nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs taken for headache pain or prevention can cause or aggravate the condition. Some common nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are ibuprofen (Motrin®, Advil®, naproxen (Naprosyn®, Anaprox®, Aleve®), aspirin, ketoprofen (Orudis®), indomethacin (Indocin®), and celecoxib (Celebrex®).

Some medications taken for ulcers, such as cimetidine (Tagamet®) or ranitidine (Zantac®), have occasionally been used in the treatment of cluster headache.

Testimonial

Just a note of thanks to the NHF for hosting these helpful online seminars.  The recent "Fibromyalgia and Migraine" was the second Webinar I've attended, and I learned a great deal.

The Webinars are easy to log into, the presentations are professional, and the presenters do not "talk down" to their auditors. The NHF is apparently choosing subject matter experts with care, and the information is up-to-date. 

Again, thank you for the hard work. I look forward to future Webinars.
