Were you looking for more information about Arthritis Medications? Arthritus drugs is a common variation and misspelling of arthritis medications.
A number of arthritis medications are currently available to eliminate or reduce pain, improve functioning, and delay joint damage. The type of arthritis a person has is the first factor a healthcare provider will consider when recommending an arthritis medicine. Pain relievers, such as acetaminophen and aspirin, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen, are commonly used for treating arthritis pain. Other arthritis drugs may include corticosteroids, antibiotics, and disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs).
