OTC Treatment for Arthritis

Arthritis is not a single disease, but any disorder that affects joints. Symptoms generally include joint pain and stiffness. Other symptoms may include redness, warmth, swelling, and decreased range of motion of the affected joints.

OTC Treatment for Arthritis

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are the most popular drugs for treating arthritis pain. NSAIDs include ibuprofen, naproxen, and aspirin. They work by reducing the production of substances called prostaglandins, which cause pain and inflammation in the body. NSAIDs have a dual action; they not only relieve pain, but they bring down swelling in the joints, too.

Acetaminophen is another over-the-counter pain reliever that can help manage arthritis discomfort.

You should not take aspirin if you know you are allergic to it. You should also avoid aspirin if you:

  • Have stomach ulcers
  • Have bleeding problems
  • Are scheduled for surgery
