Over-the-counter medicines

  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)

Nutrition

One class of medication called corticosteroids, and the decreased physical activity that can occur in children with TRAPS, can reduce bone density. Your child may need to take additional calcium supplements and vitamin D to protect his or her bones and prevent future bone loss.

Ask your child's doctor if nutritional supplementation is right for your child.
