I have arthritis in both hips and back pain. I take Voltaren twice a day (prescription) and also supplement with paracetamol at 3am when I wake with pain and sometimes other times during the day. I also am asthmatic and use serotide and nasonex as I frequently suffer from a blocked nose (was operated on for nasal polyps 10 years ago) I'm beginning to worry about all these drugs I'm taking. I walk 40 mins every day and eat a healthy diet and also drink 2 glasses of wine most nights. I'm 56 and female and peri menopausal. Any advice -are all these drugs safe? Pain at night is the worst part as it interrupts my sleep and in the morning I feel tired and not rested.
