What precautions are there when taking Arthrem®?

The safety of Arthrem® capsules has been investigated in a clinical trial, in which most patients were on numerous concomitant medications. However, no formal drug interaction studies have been conducted.

It is recommended that Arthrem® capsules should not be taken:

  • During pregnancy or breastfeeding, or in women intending to become pregnant
  • By people with elevated liver enzymes, liver disease or liver cancer
  • By children
  • By people taking antiretroviral drugs for HIV infection
  • By people who are taking drugs known to prolong the QT interval

Arthrem® capsules appear to be safe when taken with a number of concomitant medications including proton pump inhibitors (e.g., omeprazole), NSAIDs, aspirin and paracetamol.

As with most supplements, patients are advised to discontinue use for 2 weeks before and after surgery.

In very rare cases customers have experienced allergic-type reactions after taking Arthrem® (fewer than 1 in 10,000). If you do experience any of the following symptoms after taking Arthrem® we advise you stop taking the product immediately and seek medical attention as needed: rash, vomiting, extreme nausea, dizziness, shortness of breath, chest tightness.
