Benefits of Relafen
If you have pain, swelling, or stiffness caused by rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis, you may benefit from Relafen® (nabumetone).
As a type of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), Relafen works by inhibiting the action of certain hormones (prostaglandins) that cause inflammation and pain in the body. By blocking the effects of prostaglandins, Relafen is useful at reducing pain, inflammation, and joint swelling associated with certain forms of arthritis and other painful conditions.
Although there are several benefits of Relafen, this medication is not a cure for arthritis, nor does it slow down the progression of the disease.
