Ankylosing Spondylitis – Medication Side Effects

December 3, 2021


The medications used for treatment of ankylosing spondylitis are relatively safe, but they need close monitoring. If you are taking non-steroidal, you need intermittent blood testing to make sure it’s not affecting your kidneys or the liver. It is also important to avoid non-steroidal if you have underlying kidney disease or liver disease. Prior to starting any biologic treatment, it is important to test for underlying tuberculosis or hepatitis. A regular follow-up with your rheumatologist will help identify any potential side effects and prevent long-term complications.
