There are different types of pain and anti-inflammatory medications that can help reduce pain attributed to osteoarthritis.

Acetaminophen (Tyenol), lidocaine patches, antidepressants, topical pain relievers, opiods (Codeine, Hydrocodone, Methadone), non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Naproxen, etc.), corticosteroids (Hydrocortisone, Cortisone, Prednisone...), and more...

Which type of medication have you tried? How did it help/What were the results?

At what point did you start taking medication for osteoarthritis pain? Did/Have you experienced any side-effects?

Prescription: Nsaids and cortisone and cymbalta

Alternative: acupuncture, prolotherapy

NSAIDS did not help at all, cortisone did, but did not last. Cymbalta I just started, so I am hoping it does start working... I was told it takes a few weeks for it to get into the system enough.
