HEAL ARTHRITIS - STEP 6
Step 6 — Use the Proper Types and Amounts of Medications
Make a written list of which medications you take and why you take them.
Review this list with your doctor to SIMPLIFY your medications as much as possible. Remember that simple pain medications such as TylenolTM are just as effective for osteoarthritis as expensive and potentially harmful prescription medications. Simple over the counter analgesics creams such as AspercreamTM are also effective in reducing joint pain with limited side-effects.
Be sure to discuss all medications you are taking for your arthritis, even over-the-counter medicines, with your doctor!
