    Dear Editor,

    I read with great interest the recently published EULAR recommendations for the management of early arthritis.(1) However, I would like to add a few words of comment regarding the use of analgesicsin patients with cardiovascular (CV) and gastrointestinal (GI) risk factors. In my opinion the rational choice for such patients is the use ofaspirin combined with a proton-pump inhibitor.
