  4. Adverse Effects: Gastroduodenal Ulcer Incidence by endoscopy (12 weeks)
    1. Naprosyn: 35%
    2. Ibuprofen: 23-29% (2 different trials)
    3. Diclofenac: 10%
    4. Rofecoxib: 5-8% (25-50 mg)
    5. Celecoxib: 7%
    6. Placebo: 4-7% (2 different trials)

  5. Management: Prophylaxis
    1. General
      1. Always use NSAID with food or milk
      2. COX2 Inhibitors have no advantage over standard NSAID
      3. Consider screening for Helicobacter Pylori before use
    2. Indications for prophylaxis (avoid NSAIDs if possible)
      1. Age over 75 years
      2. Concurrent Warfarin therapy
      3. History of Peptic Ulcer Disease
      4. History of Gastrointestinal Bleeding
      5. History of Coronary Artery Disease
    3. Misoprostol (Cytotec)
      1. Dose: 100-200 ug tid to qid
      2. Replaces prostaglandins at Stomach lining
      3. Allows use of NSAIDS in Peptic Ulcer Disease
      4. Causes significant dose limiting Diarrhea
    4. Sucralfate
      1. Ineffective at preventing NSAID related Peptic Ulcers
    5. H2 Receptor Antagonists (e.g. Zantac, Tagamet)
      1. Not recommended (may mask GI symptoms)
      2. Prevents Duodenal Ulcer, not Gastric Ulcer
      3. Consider high dose H2 Antagonist
    6. Omeprazole
      1. Heals, but may not protect from formation
