NSAIDs inhibit the synthesis of renal prostaglandin which plays a supportive role in the maintenance of renal perfusion in patients whose renal blood flow and blood volume are decreased.
Serious gastrointestinal toxicity such as bleeding, ulceration and perforation can occur anytime with or without warning symptoms, in patients treated chronically with NSAID therapy. Piroxicam must be used under strict medical control in patients with a medical history of disturbances in the upper gastrointestinal tract.
