Rochester, NY, United States, 2005/05/31 - Lost your ‘get up and go’? If osteoarthritis is affecting your daily activity it’s time to clear up the confusion about which drugs work and which ones don’t – and what you can do to improve your quality of life.
Making Sense of Arthritis Medicine, written by orthopedic surgeon Dr. Stephanie Siegrist, is just what you need to help you overcome the crippling effects of osteoarthritis.
As a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and one of only 3% of board-certified orthopedic surgeons who are female, Dr. Siegrist says, “I want patients to learn the pros and cons of any arthritis remedy recommended for them. Before taking any medication, you owe it to your health to understand:
• What’s the name of the drug, and why am I taking it?
• How will I know if it’s working? When should I expect to feel better?
• How often do I take it: daily, three times a day, as needed?
• What are the possible side effects, and symptoms I should be aware of?
• What other drugs do I take, and how will this one interact with them?
• Why is this drug right for me?”
Know Your Bones: Making Sense of Arthritis Medicine, published by WME Books, a division of Windsor Media Enterprises, is being lauded as, “A great service to patients,” by Mary I. O’Connor, MD, Chair, Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Mayo Clinic.
Carol Anne DeMoulin, President & CEO, Arthritis Foundation, Upstate New York Chapter, says, “Dr. Siegrist’s book adds another valuable piece to our library of knowledge regarding arthritis. Know Your Bones is a book that everyone can understand.”
Dr. Siegrist recommends, “Read it from start to finish, or just refer to the drugs you currently use. Either way, you’ll regain control of your symptoms, your treatments and your costs.”
