How do you pronounce NSAID?...

Each letter separately, or ehn-ehs-aid, or ehn-said, or something even else?

Okay, so either eN-es-aid, or N-said, thanks guys,
I will try both version and I'll ask at the pharmacy at the first upcoming visit to make sure.

It's EN-sayed. I wondered that for a long time until I heard it in a commercial. Of course, though, since you are in Canada, and I believe Canada uses the British form of English, it is possible that Canada might say it differently. But in American English, it is EN-sayed.
