RIOS QUINONEZ, María Belén. Self-medication with nsaids in professional soccer players of the first division teams of the DMQ. Vive Rev. Salud [online]. 2020, vol.3, n.9, pp.213-228. ISSN 2664-3243.

Abstract Introduction: Several studies conducted by the International Football Federation have identified the abuse of NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Analgesics) in soccer players, indicating that almost 40% of the 2010 World Cup players took pain medication before each match. Objective: to identify the level of knowledge about NSAIDs presented by professional footballers of the first division squads, through the analysis and reality of each team. Method: surveys validated by the medical departments of each club were applied and through open and closed questions and multiple choice format, it was determined that: the age of the professional soccer players in the study ranges between 15 and 34 years. Results: Regarding the knowledge of the pharmacological group that counteracts symptoms of pain, fever and inflammation; It was determined that there is great confusion and ignorance in relation to the identification of drugs and their conceptualization. Likewise, with respect to active principles that treat pain, fever and inflammation, a preference was noted for Ibuprofen, Paracetamol and Diclofenac. And that less than 50% of all footballers recognize the adverse effects of the drugs under study. Conclusion: there are shortcomings regarding the knowledge of medications (NSAIDs), and that due to the haste with which they need to return to the courts, these sports professionals often trust people who are not trained in medicine or pharmacological issues.
